Almost there, but not
30 March 2006 | by jem_mySee all my reviews

I felt that this movie could have been better if i had focus more on the scares, however this is much of a neutral film, which is not that scary, nor frightening.

The people focus are not that much, and the scare effects could have been better, but seeing that the film director is Hark Tsui, his films are usually made more for plot rather than characters.

Somehow, i keep remembering the name of this film back in my mind, because it gives me the creeps sometimes when trying to remember it.

However if you don't understand Asian (chinese) horror creatures, then its not really worth watching it.

-Alright film to watch / can be creepy-
