its pretty good for a local venture...no fancy special effect....more realistic notions. Early frights...but seem to fizzle out at the end. Not bad lah...worth the weekend price.

Hmmm.... we're thinking of bringing over one of our maids from back in Manila. Do you think she'll come over if she watches the move?

Fyi: the maid in the movie is a popular Filipina actress. Haven't seen the film yet but the movie trailer sure looked creepy...

:)

Not to worry unless you stay at those old old house estate or something like the one in the movie, then your maid will fly back the next day.:sweatsm:

Overall it's a nice show which show the other side of singapore and the important of this culture. Seventh Month is an very important event for the chinese which believe the ancestor can visit them during this month of the year.:sweat: :sweat: :sweat:

here's my two-cents worth 'opinion' on the show..

i felt no connection or sympathy to the character of the maid in the show at all. all i know is she's from the philippines and her brother is her only family left. the show could have done with better character development.

lots of cheap, predictable and unimaginative scares with liberal use of audio cues to let you know something scary is about to happen. i guess that needs no explaination..

the plot becomes more and more predictable as it goes along. plus a super-derivative twist copied straight from 'Sixth Sense'.

ok la, only redemption is the ok-la acting from the cast.

please don't flame me if you happen to be a fan of the show

The last part where the mdm kena killed reminded me of the scene from 'Final Destination' :think: :think: :bsmilie:
