Diagnosis: Partly Funny but mostly Absurd!
3 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

I found the entire flick to be comical, although there're a few gory scenes. Probably that's because of the lead character Andre(actor Rabyon Kan) who's mostly scared and frequently hiding behind his new-found love Juliet(actor Jessica Grace). I find that really sissy :)

Suze Tye as the villainous nurse is quite scary. I'd dread to have such a creepy person helping me with my medication, even if she has a hot body!

The climax was unconvincing. I could not digest how the ghosts finally got some power only when our lead characters finished solving the puzzle of the double murders.

Verdict: Silly, silly creep show.
