Film Main Info
A stylish and gritty supernatural thriller from horror maestro Oxide Pang (The Eye, The Messengers). A private detective named Tam (Asian superstar Aaron Kwok) is drawn into a complex murder mystery when he is hired to track down a missing young woman. As the trail unfolds it appears that it might be a murder case and that supernatural forces may be at hand. It seems also that there is no one that Tam can trust to tell the truth anymore and truth itself is only revealed in the chilling climax to this intricate story. Set in Bangkok with beautiful art-direction and a booming soundtrack and with a great performance from Aaron Kwok (The Storm Warriors, The Throwdown, After This Our Exile).
