Could have been worse...
26 April 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I do enjoy Asian cinema quite a lot, but of course not everything Asian is top notch and super great. "Ghost Bride" can be somewhat of a challenge to get through if you are unfamiliar with Asian traditions and superstitions, especially because the movie was very slow paced and detail-minded. And for those in the audience unfamiliar with Asian superstitions, then "Ghost Bride" will be unfathomably boring to sit through.

Luckily I am fairly familiar with Asian culture, superstitions and traditions, but even so, I found this movie to be slow and fairly uneventful.

That being said, I am not saying that the movie is all bad. It is actually nicely directed and filmed, and there is a good coherency throughout the movie, despite it lacking pace and captivation. And for a thriller, then "Ghost Bride" was fairly devoid of thrills and scares.

The acting in the movie was adequate, and oddly enough the one carrying the movie was Fiona Feng who played May-Ling, who was the only one with almost no speaking parts in the entire movie.

Whereas Asian horrors tend to be more spooky and eerie in their usage of the traditional ghost in a white gown with long black hair covering the face, "Ghost Bride" makes use of a more colorful and 'cheerful'-looking ghost, which was a nice pace of change.

The movie is very predictable, and doesn't once throw the audience off the track, which is a shame, because you see things coming a mile away.

There are nice things to the movie, but if you are looking for a proper Asian scary movie, then your money is better spent elsewhere.
