Dial D for Demon
Year: 2000 "Oh my god, it's Wong Jing! And he's right upstairs!"
Lee Ann and Joey Man get spooked
Director: Billy Tang Hin-Sing
Cast: Jordan Chan Siu-Chun, Terence Yin (Wan Chi-Wai), Joey Man Yi-Man, Alice Chan Wai, Lee Ann d'Alexandry d'Orengiani, Winnie Leung Man-Yi
The Skinny: Surprisingly effective horror film that manages to work despite a derivative storyline, annoying characters and nonexistent acting.
Review
by Kozo:
     Billy Tang directs this effective, yet derivative horror entry. Jordan Chan leads a group of youngsters to a seaside condo that doubles as a hellhole for a jilted ghost. She dials up the kids via pager and proceeds to off them. It seems the phone call is a precursor to your death, and if you get paged then your number is up. Yep, this sounds suspiciously like The Ring, the sublime Japanese horror film that started this crazy HK horror boom. At least Dial D for Demon manages to steal some good stuff from The Ring, like a penchant for true suspense and a dread that spares nobody. This really isnít a major film to write home about, but lead Joey Man Yi-Man is engaging and the film proves to be a somewhat enjoyable diversion. If you manage to ignore the nonexistent acting and annoying characters, you should be okay. (Kozo 2000)
