The Skinny: Worthwhile horror flick that's more creepy and disturbing than out-and-out frightening.
Review
by Kozo:
     Genuinely creepy "date" horror film from Wellson Chin features two stories linked together by wacky cop Dayo Wong (who would later reprise this role in the 1997 film 24 Hrs. Ghost Story). The first story involves Sheila Chan, who loses her fiancee in a car crash. However, he returns...stitched together. The second story is about Bowie Lam, who dies but returns in the body of Anthony Wong. He wants to be with his family again but when he discovers the truth about them and his new life, things change. Really. There are some decent twists here help the film, and the actors are uniformly above-average for this sort of thing. Anthony Wong does a fine job as a likable character (for a change), and Sheila Chan is welcome in an unusual leading performance. Ultimately, it's the disturbing atmosphere that's compelling and not any real stand-out plotting. (Kozo 1997)
