Storyline

At a Thai hospital, a doctor and his seven nubile nurses engage in the sale of bodies. Jealousy causes Tawan, one of the nurses, to threaten to blow the whistle on the practice, so the others murder her. The dealer in bodies doesn't arrange for delivery of Tawan's corpse for a full week. As midnight approaches on the seventh day after the murder, each of the remaining nurses as well as Dr. Taa, faces a supernatural revenger. In flashbacks we see the events leading up to the murder and realize the full range of relationships among the main characters, including the duplicitous Dr. Taa and Tawan's sister, Nook.

This film is insane
17 January 2008 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is a film that wallows and writhes in ecstatic abandon with the pure joy of being a B-Movie. I'm sure it never pretends to be anything else, and as such should be rated in those terms. Maybe as a 'film' it deserves its IMDb rating of 4.3, but as an exploitation/horror flick it would have to rate a solid 7.5. For those who enjoy the genre, you should find much to love.

The basic premise is this ... get a bunch of babes in form-fitting nurse costumes, point the camera at them a lot while they're walking away, introduce the obligatory Asian hair ghost, and sprinkle liberally with copious amounts of blood and creative death sequences.

Yeah its got a story, but who cares. Read one of the other reviews if that concerns you.

Fans of Asian horror will no doubt find it somewhat derivative - this is a 2007 film using the whole hair-ghost angle that was already tired and overdone in 2005. Connoisseurs will also recognise a famous scene lifted from Takashi Miike's Gozu, but in the spirit of Tarantino lets call it 'an homage'. In any case, it really doesn't matter - the film is too much fun to get hung up on critical technicalities. Crack open a beer and enjoy the show!
