Storyline

When Wade Chen, who is the driver of President Yang of the Weida Group, accidentally sees his boss shagging a top-model in the backseat of his car, Yang surprisingly invites him to go to a high-society party. Wade thanks and tells that he has neither money nor clothes to go to the event, but Yang tells the he would sponsor everything to Wade that could tell that is his cousin. In the invitation, the guest is requested to fulfill with the offbeat dream. In the party promoted by Mr. Warren in a warehouse, Wade gets closer to Miss Liang and two other rookies. Each one of them sees the dream coming true but sooner the quartet discovers that they are the lead attraction of the party that is promoted to torture losers in a deadly fight of classes.

Plot is a mix of foreign horror movies
20 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot copies ideas from several movies I've seen such as 2008 french movie Vampire Party (Les Dents De La Nuit) - 5 people got invitation cards to a special party off an island and found out they are nothing but walking prey to a bunch of vampires. Another one is Saw, with the video recorder scenes.

For the movie itself, I'm disappointed about the script as it brings nothing new to the table. What makes a story / movie special is the local cultural elements + human nature / universal questions we all have or face during the era. For horror movies, especially Asian, what works most but neglected most are urban legends.

The surprising part of this movie is one of the actress is more famous than anyone in the film turns out to be a Japanese porn actress - Maria Ozawa could land a role more than a sex scene. It's another porn actress got into mainstream movie after Dany Verissimo successfully played a role in Distrct 13 (Banlieue 13).
