Often threatens to deliver, but never makes it.
8 June 2008 | by matt_r101See all my reviews

You Gou (Darkness Bride) is based on the premise that the ghost of a virgin has returned to wreak vengeance on three rural villagers who dug up her bones to sell to a dealer who trades in illegal components of Chinese medicine.

The film follows their slow descent from a happy(?) "twin peakesque" village life to their ultimate nadir as they try to bounce back from the series of minor discomforts that the "Darkness Bride" inflicts upon them.

At most times the film manages to convey an unsettling eerie feel suggesting that something terrible is just around the corner - but it never delivers on this. The highlight of this is an evil looking goat that at least looks like it might want to bite one of the characters.

Although often promising the film, much like the Casperish antagonist herself, leaves you the victims minorly discomforted at the money you have lost and the time spent doing something that in the end wasn't really a very good idea.
