I found this on Netflix and decided to watch it since I am quite fond of horror/comedy fusions, one of my favorite movies is "Chilling Romance" after all. Sadly, it wasn't what I was hoping for and I am disappointed even though I told myself not to expect anything from it.

This was basically just a silly movie, with silly acting, and not really horror (unless you are a lightweight). If you are into this kind of genre or you just want some light "horror", you will probably enjoy it, but for me the cliched horror/comedy elements in this type of fused movie fell flat. I had hoped they would make more of the theme than what they did. If I am honest, it boring since even the humor in it didn't even as much tickle my humor much less made me laugh. Although, the story did have potential they didn't know how to make it work.


Encontré esta película en Netflix. Decidí verla ya que me gusta mucho este tipo de películas con los géneros de horror y comedia mezclados, una de mis películas favoritas es "Romance escalofriante". Lamentablemente, no era lo que esperaba y estoy un poco decepcionada a pesar de que me dije que no esperara mucho de ella.

Es básicamente un pelicula tonta, con actuación tonta. Tampoco es horror en realidad a menos que seas un peso liviano y te asustes hasta de tu sombra. Si este tipo de película es de de tu agradado o simplemente quieres algo con "horror" liviano, probablemente te guste, pero para mí no supieron hacer uso de los elementos de los géneros y me pareció bastante sosa y aburrida. La historia tenía potencial, pero en realidad no supieron como ejecutarla.

Lin's direction is lively and caricatured, not unlike that of compatriot Giddens Ko Ching-teng, while her clever ability to provide laughs and scares, combined with a vibrant visual style, highlights her as a not-so-exciting talent to watch though in the film is the unlikely friendship that flourishes among this trio of misfits that forms the basis of Lin's consistently amusing play. Apparently the techniques leave much to be desired which makes the film sickening, not even the laughs are enough to save the bit of interesting history that presents.
