Uneven, but fun to watch.
20 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It looks like mainland China is producing more horror films lately. Over the past year or so I've seen trailers for dozens of titles. "Chrysalis" turned out to be a nice little surprise.

After being kidnapped, a young woman awakens (three months later) on the side of a road with no memory of her abduction. Subsequently, she begins to experience psychological episodes that mirror her abductor's persona. During the opening half, this film is a bit uneven in its direction and scoring, and a bit messy in terms of scriptwriting. It just feels a bit rushed and impatient. Fortunately, it gets better as it progresses and contributes a very entertaining second half. The plot and protagonist hold interest throughout, the production values are nice, and there are some genuine surprises to be had. The visuals and overall style are quite good as well. This is a fun watch.
