Trivia

The film is adapted from a video game by the same name created by Red Candle Games, a Taiwanese game developer. The same company has been involved in a political controversy surrounding alleged sacasm targeting Chinese president Xi Jinping in another horror game it created, /Devotion/ ("Huanyuan"). A proof of such allegation is an inconspicuous reference to Winnie the Pooh ("Xiaoxiong Weini"), an unwelcomed nickname for the Chinese leader, in the game, which is concealed in esoteric seal characters.

A new milestone for Taiwanese movie
1 October 2019 | by cyh-92371See all my reviews

It's classified as a thriller, but what catches my eyes is the plot and the awesome choice of the actors and actresses. Even if you don't understand Taiwanese history, the movie is still deserved watching. I expected to be frightened When entering the theater, but end up crying when leaving.
