Stars: 2 / 10

A Chinese psychological thriller, heavily inspired by Ringu / The Ring, with nothing original to offer.

Occasionally interesting cinematography for the dream sequences.

The story becomes so painfully dull and repetitive in the second half that I did a bit of fast-forwarding, just to get through it.

I understand that the Chinese government censors are coming down hard on anything that even slightly smells of the supernatural, which, sadly for this film, really quashed any potential it may have had. A nice try, but, ultimately: FAIL.
