The Good, the Bad and the Lost Soul:

Famous for his comedy flicks, prolific Singaporean director Lee Thean Jeen returns with his latest work and this time around he ventures into a genre that's different from his usual romantic comedy style. "Bring Back the Dead", is a horror drama which stars talented Singapore-based Malaysian actress, Jesseca Liu and Taiwanese actor and host, Jacko Chiang as the main lead. The film is about a husband and wife pair, Jia En and De Wei (Liu and Chiang) who recently lost their seven-year-old son, Xiao Le in a tragic car accident. Unable to accept the death of her son, Jia En seeks help from her former caregiver, Madam Seetoh for a way to bring back the soul of her son. Unfortunately, strange occurrences start to take place after his soul was brought back. The film is a sad and touching piece which shows the unbreakable bond between a mother and a son, and it is very believable, because it portrays what a doting parent would be willing to do and how they would behave when it comes to sacrificing anything for the sake of their child. Actress Jesseca Liu did a wonderful job in portraying Jia En as her grief and emotions are definitely felt by the audience. The horror elements in the film are not too overdramatic as the film starts out slow and sad at the beginning, but gets more intense when it reaches the climax. Young actor Shawn Tan who plays Xiao Le, the son of the couple, also performs well in the film despite the film being his acting debut. In conclusion, the plot of the film is solid and profound in a way that it can deeply move the audience to tears due to the familial love shown in the film.

Look Out For:
The scene when the maid was attacked can incite goosebumps.

Trivia:
The film is based on one of the short stories from "Ghost Baby and Other Eerie Tales" written by Wong Swee Hoon.

Best Watched With:
Those who love horror.
