The Good, the Bad and the Forgotten Names:

Director Ryon Lee is back again with another horror film, except this one will definitely keep you up thinking about its plot.

Originally set as the sequel to "Haunted Road", audiences can definitely see how this movie correlates with the former despite no similarities in either plot or characters.

While its plot seems simple on first glance, don't be tempted to take your eyes off the screen, as you will learn later that everything is not as it seems. Every seemingly petty scene foreshadows a bigger revelation and is connected to one another.

Knowing the backstory behind the haunted Amber Court and Karak Highway (which is also featured in the movie) will certainly add on to the enjoyment, with both haunted legends highly highlighted in the film.

With talents spanning from China, Thailand and Malaysia, viewers can definitely expect decent acting performances although do excuse some stiff acting from a few of the extras (and the ghost).

Having Thailand lending their speciality in horror effects is a boost for the movie. However try not to expect some Hollywood-like CGI and you will be spared of any disappointment.

While some of the ghosts might not frighten you visually, the superb sound effects will definitely help in making you jump from the scares.

Overall, it is a rather different take on a seemingly typical horror movie and an enjoyable one too, given if you watch it with an open mind.


Trivia:

• The movie is made with the collaboration between China, Malaysia and Thailand.
• Thai star Sushar Manaying takes on a Mandarin-speaking role despite not knowing the language.
• The movie is filmed at the actual Amber Court.
• This movie is also screening in Hong Kong, Thailand and China.
