Watch this if you liked: “The Transcend”, “Annabelle”

The Good, the Bad and the Ghost:
The ghost in this movie brings to mind of "Annabelle", as in almost all the hauntings are done passively - most of the time the ghost merely appears somewhere to the side but remains invisible to the person it is 'trying' to scare. This serves only as a scare tactic to the audience but contributes nothing to the plot. It is still forgivable in the case of "Annabelle" as she is only a doll, but for a vengeful ghost that's full of pain and hatred, she could have been made more aggressive. Newcomers Jean Tan and Agnes Wong still have miles to go before they are up for any Best Actress awards. There is a nice arc to James Wong's character, director Yu but all the others fall flat. Henry Thia is well-known for his comedic act and his role as comic relief YY saves the movie, providing audience with some laughter to look forward to amidst the wooden acting generally found in the movie. For a film with a big budget, it does not translate into the scenes. The camera work reminds one of a film student's first project. The effects are mediocre at best, using typical loud sounds and sudden images popping up onscreen as a way to scare the audience instead of fully utilising what could have been a very gruesome-looking and terrifying ghost. For audience who often digests a movie to find the messages it carries, one of the messages this movie leaves might be very disturbing, considering that it affects a child and yet no adult has ever put a stop to it - and there was never any retribution to the wrong. It is an ambitious script, but sadly not well executed.

Look Out For:

Director Bryan Gao's cameo in the movie.

Trivia:

Bryan Gao dislikes when the actors NG, but he did it the most during his cameo.
