Guy writes about a village mansion. Stupid students go there. Ghost is not happy.
9 October 2010 | by BoloxxxiSee all my reviews

This movie is Chinese. I viewed it with subtitles. Unless you speak the language you will need a good jumpstart if you decide to see it (not to worry, I never spoil). So here it is:

Guy betrays his girlfriend's trust by writing about some notorious village mansion that they discovered earlier on in their relationship when they were still a couple (he had promised it would be their secret). As he's leaving a school building one day, he is recognized and confronted by some students wanting to know if the legend of the village mansion is true, and it's location. He tells them he made up the story; that the village and mansion doesn't exist. They don't believe him and decide to investigate on their own. Ghost is not happy and starts e-mailing the guy and calling him on his cell.

Years ago in some village mansion, according to the story or the legend, a young woman named Rouge, out of love and devotion, stayed with her husband 7 days and 6 nights after he took ill and died. Subsequently the husband comes back to life. Rouge was so happy she told the villagers. The villagers said he must be a ghost and burned him to death. Heartbroken, Rouge then burned herself to death. The mansion has been haunted ever since.

There you have it. A nice framework for a non-Chinese speaking audience.

I would describe this movie as a ghost-mystery-love story. One that is unfortunately not scary at all and is best viewed just as a mystery-love story. So if you want to be scared or horrified you're probably better off going through your financial papers and looking at some bill you owe. Love, Boloxxxi.
