Frankly a huge disappointment
31 October 2014 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

On their honeymoon in China, newlyweds become stranded in a remote village while the locals are celebrating Hungry Ghost Month to honor their deceased relatives, and find themselves as the prized sacrifices intended for the ghosts.

Good grief was this an utter disappointment. There should've been a lot to like with this one as one of the better elements present here is the rather well-done and exciting attack scenes throughout here as the ghosts come out here early and often. The attacks from off quite fun as well here by focusing on the just insanely creepy and chilling abandoned village for a setting here. Decked out in the traditional decorations for the celebration so it has a localized flavor that adds immensely to the atmosphere here, and when the creepy ghosts are placed in that location it makes for a much more chilling experience. From the early sprawl through the village to dead ears and protests, the frantic attack in the basement along the ceremony and the relentless actions around the car are quite a bit of fun and really make out the ghosts quite well as threats here which is always a plus. Even later attacks throughout the village including encounters through a cemetery and the finale deep into the caves hidden in the forest make for stupendously chilling moments that add a fully-charged, relentless pace to the other encounters while providing plenty of excitement, yet there's very little good that comes of these good points. The part which really makes all this so disappoint is the fact that these are utterly wasted in a film as truly nauseating as this one gets. It hurts so much to actually look at this due to those absurdly dismal shaking-camera footage that runs rampant throughout this, really coming off worse than found-footage films with a similar tactic as this one really makes it impossible to see what's' going on by being so blurry and out-of-focus during the whole film. The documentary-style feel here just looks completely terrible since it's not something being filmed by either one so there's no excuse for doing this throughout here with the kind of dedication to utter chaos and dis-coordination that's featured here, which does lower this one so far that it remains so disappointing instead of being one of the more enjoyable efforts around.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Brief Nudity and a brief sex scene.
