film which tried so hard to be like
others such as One Missed Call or The Grudge with the
ghostly activities as well as it having
english or other language used which
makes it even more confusing while trying
to understand what they're saying.
There are some good directions and
effects with the ghosts appearing and
haunting their victim which almost makes
you jump... and I mean almost which
The film was made on a descent budget and
doesn't show musch killings at all in
which the makers tried to make a horror
film entertaining with just hauntings but
yet the plot was quite weak as I didn't
understand most of it at all other than
people returing after dying from natural
There's some artsy moments with some
people in coffins as well as showing
hundreds of other coffins as well as
strange dream sequences happening in a
field which looked fairly amusing to
watch and wondering what these scene's
are all about.
I did get a kick out of some moments when
a certain person spots another person who
is supposedly dead stalking them and the
other doesn't see anything at all.
There's nice dark moments too with a
gravedigging moment which was a good
touch too. Other than that there was
nothing much about this flick worth
A good close up camera shots on the character Sue in a coffin talking directly at
the camera and then the camera turns away
pointing to a bunch of other coffin's
whilch looked well done.
There's a good shot on Chris in a field chasing after May with a good shot on him
flying in the air after he touches her
which makes you wonder what that was all
about. Then there's a nice dark shot on
him in a coffin crying out in fear along
with a nice shot on a tear rolling down
his cheek. There's also a good ghostly
shot on May next to him
with a good light effect shining on her.
There's a terrific shot with a car
strolling across another street with a
truck slamming into it which is a great
jumping moment along with good close up
shots on the remains of these vehicles.
There's some interesting discussions
between Sue and Jack with shots on them having a discussion
and their blocking looked pretty good
There's a nice approach by one of the other characters weeping towards Sue telling her the devastating news about
her boyfriend and Sue herself letting
her know he's in her room in which
there's good takes with this person looking in the room and telling her that
no one is there and then a good shot on Sue spotting him sitting at her bed.
There's a good shot on Sue talking to this character about a
situation she starts to weep
but then there's a creepy shot with this person bending down to her face and then a shot
on her with a burnt face
speaking demonic towards her.
There's many good camera shots looking up
and down on Chris digging
up a grave.
There's a good shot on Sue standing in a hall of mirror doors
reflecting a ghoulish shot on another person and then approaching towards her and
attacking her which showed good horror
There's a nice shot on Chris talking
to Mariko near an ocean
front which looked peaceful and then
later on a good ghostly and gruesome
presence by May slowly
walking up towards Mariko talking
evilly towards her with a nice shot on May screaming hysterically bending down
and losing control.
There's good shots and discussions with 3 people doing
some researching on the computer and
watching videos to find out some clues on
the paranormal activity that's going on
as it looked serious as if they are
really getting into it.
There's a great shot on May going
into a cremation oven and opening up a
coffin getting anxious with a great
moment on another main character dragging her into
the coffin with her screaming in fear as
well as a nice shot on the oven heating
up with her trying to struggle to get out
in which this was highly energised.
There's a nice peaceful moment during a
dream sequence with Chris sitting next to Mariko trying
to talk to her in a peaceful manner which
There's also a good tense moment with Chris in the coffin and blood pouring all
over him with him screaming and
struggling with the blood drowning him
There's also a good dialogue between Chris with Sue having a heavy
discussion as to why deaths happen which
looked quite powerfully done.
Bottom line is that this film is a
sleeper but not a bomb which I had to
give it one bat for trying their best to
make it the best they possibly could.
It's just poorly written and very
forgettable too with some ripoff elements
of Final Destination.
This film was inspired by a true event
which disappointed me even more as I
usually like those types and not alot of
The acting is in
very average shape as the lead actress Karen
Mok (Sue) seemed terribly plain with just
the nice looks doing all the talking with
her performance in which she won awards
in other shows with her acting talents
which surprised me so maybe this part she
couldn't adjust to. She's not terrible.
Just average. She doesn't do too well
when she cries on set either which seemed
to lack a bit.
Ananda Everingham (Chris) as another one who
is being haunted by a former girlfriend
of his shows some descent energy in his
role as well as his serious attitude too.
He knew how to act anxious and scared
with upsetting emotions too. He does well being
aggressive while digging up a grave.
Aki Shubuya (Mariko) showed a nice sensitive
attitude to her part as well as knowing
how to cry in fear along with her blood
dripping screaming when she's being
terrorised by a ghost in which she
brought all of this together perfectly
and found her to be the best out of the
Florence Faivre came across nicely
as the sympathetic type in the film
showing a good calmness with her words.
She also looked beautiful in the film
which really helped with the character
that she portrayed.
Hoi Lyn seemed to do an average job
as a mellow type when he's alive and came
across very creepy like when he returns
as a scarred ghost in which he does a
better job. I don't find him to be a
versatile actor though but can do a good
job playing a horror character.
Napakpapha Nakpresitte (May) showed a
perfect evil presence on herself as a
scarred ghost with her long dangly hair
and expressions. She certainly let it out
too when she spoke evilly towards the
faces on two ghostly figures separately
done in the film.
There's some light
peaceful piano tapping during the silent
moments in the film plus we hear some
jungle drum thumping during some dream
sequences with the chasing scene's too.
To top it off there's some thumping
sounds and some slamming effects too.
