TWISTED (撞鬼) movie preview - In Cinemas 28th July 2011


Attended Twisted, 撞鬼 Singapore Gala Premiere last Saturday at Shaw Lido Cineplex.


A horror-comedy directed by Director Chai Yee Wai (Blood Ties).Cast include local actor/comedian Mark Lee (李国煌), veteran actress Mimi Chu (朱咪咪), Taiwanese singer/actor Linda Liao (廖语晴), Cavin Soh, Randall Tan and many more!


Synopsis:

The story of TWISTED revolves around a drug dealer who impregnated a girl, a pair of conmen who wants to turn over a new leaf and 4 cabin crews whose lives were turned upside down over a fateful night of drugs and booze:

Guan (starring Mark Lee) is a flashy, womanizing drug dealer. It was during one of his many flings that he’d knocked up Mimi (starring Candy Lim), who turned obsessive in getting his attention which led to a fatal end. Guan’s ruthless way unknowingly unleashed the devil in Mimi…

Through Guan, two horny cabin crew, Cavin and Randall (starring Cavin Soh, Randall Tan) got their hands on some drugs. Their game plan was to spike the drinks of their colleagues, Linda and Tracy (starring Linda Liao, Tracy Lee) during a night out at the club. Anxious to get fresh of the girls, the eager duo stumbled upon a freak accident. The incident soon snowballed and led to a series of unfortunate happenings, bringing about a display of animalistic survival instinct.

Fa (starring Zhu Mimi) and her daughter, Yi Ning (starring Joey Leong) were victims of her abusive husband. Unable to tolerate the abuse and traumas, Fa killed her husband. The vengeful spirit of her husband swiftly possessed Yi Ning to create harvoc. To save her daughter, she seeks the help of two mediums, who further complicate the issue.

Among these seemingly unrelated characters, their paths crossed and intertwined… Somehow, ill-luck seems to transcend the characters.

This is a story of individuals with fates intertwined and their paths collided. A series of twisted events that is a study on cause and effect and how our actions affect the people around us.




Personally find that this is not a typical horror film, but added with some sense of humor to give the crowd a twisted feeling before the audience could sense a shudder down the spine.


There were some violent scene involved... so Parental Guidance is strongly encouraged...


There is a link to the short stories, and I guessed the director could have created the theme of the movie, Twisted, by mixing up the sequence. So...what actually happens? You gotta hit the cinema this weekend to find it out yourself!


Give the movie probably 2.5 out of 5 stars!
Catch it soon at the cinema near you!
