Movie Info

A forbidden passion awakens vengeful spirits within a haunted mansion in this bloodcurdling, erotic tour-de-force. Vietnam, 1953: Linh (Nhung Kate), a poor, orphaned young woman, finds employment as a housemaid in a crumbling rubber plantation presided over by the emotionally fragile French officer Sebastien Laurent (Jean-Michel Richaud). Soon, a torrid love affair develops between the two--a taboo romance that rouses the ghost of Laurent's dead wife, who won't rest until blood flows. Submerged in moody Gothic atmosphere, this stylish supernatural saga confronts the dark shadows of Vietnam's colonial past while delivering heart-stopping scares.

  • Writer-director Derek Nguyen's supernatural thriller settles confidently in a place between classy and trashy.

  • A tonally calamitous mélange that's nonetheless compelling for its absence of caution.

  • Although not particularly original in its recycling of familiar genre tropes, the stylish film should well satisfy horror aficionados while engaging more general audiences as well.

  • A good-looking but overstuffed genre pileup that confuses as often as it compels.

    Feb 15, 2018 | Full Review…
  • An aimless exercise in dismal, scattershot PG-13 theatrics, the film builds clunkily towards a climactic reveal that is much more likely to elicit an indifferent grunt than a gasp.

    Dec 7, 2018 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…
  • Derek Nguyen's feature debut is a horror whose duplicitous gothic taps right into the contradictions of colonialism.
