During the Qingming Festival, a single mother, He Sheng Xin, her daughter and mother, visits the tomb at Chiayi Minxiong Cemetery. Xiao Yi, Sheng Xin's daughter, gets missing when she accidentally touches a weird barrier, keeping strangers away from the tombstones. The key to finding the missing child seems to be hidden in mansion walls attached to the cemetery. Sheng Xin soon enters the mansion, and with clues from ancient ghosts stuck in the building, she's not only trying to find her daughter but also solve and reveal a terrifying secret that had been buried for many years in the building.

Expected a goofy horror, got a tragic tale.

I did not expect a semi-solid plot when I started this movie. The last 30 minutes makes the film worth the watch. Don’t get me wrong though, there is not much depth. It’s tragic, sad, and at times infuriating, but there is no social commentary about what happened, and the ending might seem a bit disappointing.

Still, there was a lot of potential. Especially surprised by well constructed plot twists that added layers to the story. It was also visually great - none of the special effects seemed cheap, no typical ghost with long dark hair creeping around. There was a clear vision on how the movie was supposed to look like and what story it was supposed to tell.

It’s worth knowing there are some triggering scenes in the movie - a few more clearly shown than others, but they might be too much for some viewers.

The acting was decent. Honestly speaking, except for Cheryl Yang, none of the other cast members had the opportunity to even start flexing their potential skills.

Overall, surprisingly nice, way better than I expected just based on the synopsis and my previous experience with randomly picked Chinese horror movies.
