This was a random little horror movie I stumbled across and no wonder it stayed little. What a snooze.
It stars Maggie Siu (whose most memorable role for me is "Siu Chiu" in the 80's TVB Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre) as a bad mother. The problem is that's not what the role's meant to be, just that she's depressed or something and the director has her painted in a totally unsympathetic light. That keeps the audience at a further distance from what's already a cold movie, in which there's not a lot of score, action, or even dialogue.
The story is reminiscent of The Sixth Sense, in that the daughter sees ghosts at home and the mother doesn't believe her. Sadly, there's where the similarity ends as it progresses into a boring tale of how the mother and daughter's lives parallel the ones of the ghosts. It wouldn't be so bad if there were scares and tension but nope, the movie's pretty lame.
