Bad acted horror-comedy
6 October 2018 | by alexfromhornSee all my reviews

Creative yet chaotic horror-mystery anthology short-movies interconnected with each other. The story is vague yet funny and the atmosphere is definitely there, but with it's shortness and quick changes of characters it fails to deliver any suspense and tension. The acting is as usual in older Hongkong movies rather mediocre and often not convincing. If you are watching this movie in german, the title is: "Troublesome Night the A-Files" it is totally mysterious why they gave it this title, no information that this is the fifth installment of this anthology movie series nor any information on what "The A-Files" are supposed to be because they are never being mentioned. If you decide to buy this movie as the german DVD release, better be prepared for some traumatizing picture quality, it's as if they had ripped it from a very low resolution youtube video. The quality is so blurry and corny it's really distracting. But I bought it used for 69 cents so I'm not really complaining.
