A couple returns to North America for a family funeral, having lived in Shanghai, China for the previous six years.

Average horror flick
29 May 2008 | by gee-60See all my reviews

I like horror, and horror in the true sense of being scared by a movie. This had a few jumps in it, but nothing terrifying.

The main problem with it was the story. It was very, very all over the place. You're not sure if it's a monster movie, a ghost story or a horror film. And it keeps you guessing right up till the end...and I'm still not sure.

If the story had been written well, the film would have been good. The acting was not bad, nothing outstanding. The direction was again, OK, a few good moments are spoilt by a few bad ones.

Watch it late at night, with the lights off, you'll most likely enjoy it. Just try not to follow the plot too closely, coz it's not a very good one.
