Ready For Something Different?
4 July 2020 | by johan-naderSee all my reviews

It is a Hong Kong slasher and if you have watched a few of those you know things are bound to get bloody. It starts dreary enough with the woman working a scammy telemarketing job for a bank, but things soon take a turn for the red when the blood splatter begins. Turns out a woman has figured out how to get her hands on the property she wants at the price she wants. Reminds me about this study ten years or so ago that showed when women who are attractive and wear short skirts or microskirts etc frequent residential areas the real-estate values go up! This film takes the premise and inverses it almost.
