All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Maid (2005)



Director: Kelvin Tong


Premise:
A foreign girl takes a job in Singapore as a maid for a Chinese Opera House. She is thrown in the middle of Chinese beliefs for the dead in the seventh lunar month, where the dead walk among the living. Soon she offends the spirits which leads to questions of what happened to the last maid.

My Take:
Not a bad a mystery wrapped up in the traditional Chinese belief. It moves rather slow and I could do without the voice over. Worth a watch.

Rating: In the middle
