Even if Mak's drawn-out special effects seem like overkill, the bottom line is that he spins a good campfire yarn.

Director Juno Mak might have pulled off this potpourri if it weren't for a cop-out ending.

A discolored, comparatively humorless, slow-build horror movie whose connection to the hopping-vampire craze would seem tenuous if it weren't continually asserting it.

Multihyphenate Juno Mak makes his directing debut with this tedious tribute to Hong Kong's 'hopping vampires' subgenre.

[Blu-ray Review] Lacking in scares and suspense, the picture throttles its audience with visual effects and evocative imagery, but never gets to the heart of the characters.

The Dissolve

an elegantly realised revitalisation of a lost mode of Hong Kong horror, with loss itself, as well as cinema's special power to preserve and even resurrect the dead, key to its elegantly eerie impact.
