Strange beastie
16 May 2016 | by jim9tanSee all my reviews

Started as a slasher film, then took on elements of a supernatural tale. Finally, resolved itself as a crime thriller. Ended as a love-lost romance.

Very high production value. Elegant digital effects, and good cinematography.

Ruby Lin looks amazing good.

In general, the cast gave a strong performance with a crisp pace.

The plot was rather thin but the movie looked really good. Worth 7/10.

It was disappointing to see such a poor turnout at the Cineplex. Should have been better promoted in Richmond, Canada.
