Review
by Kozo:
     Suprisingly effective nailbiter starring Veronica Yip as a woman who's temporarily blind for three days. Also, her husband is currently out of town, which is the perfect opportunity for creepy stranger Anthony Wong to invade Yip's home and terrorize her. Yip must fight back in whatever way she can, but hey, she's blind. And worse, Wong's motivations may be more than just a random housecall.
     This sometimes harrowing thriller is quite possibly the Hong Kong version of Wait Until Dark, except Veronica Yip is no Audrey Hepburn. At the same time, Yip has shown she can act, and here she transcends her previous Category III roots by taking on this exploitative, but meaty role. She's effective and believable as a blind woman, and she gives the part a depth which might have otherwise been missing. Anthony Wong matches her with one of his patented deranged turns, but his performance never overshadows the film or the characters. That, plus some genuinely edgy sequences and a consistent, gripping tone make this flick better than its exploitation trappings. (Kozo 1997)
