The Unbelievable

We were discussing on the movie that are showing right now in the cinema during supper last night and one catches our attention. It's called The Unbelievable. For those who is unknown of the name, it's a TV reality show from Hong Kong which explores the unseen and unknown world of the supernatural. So this movies is nothing different from the TV show but this time around they combined 5 stories with 4 from around Thailand and the last being taped in Malaysia.

So the crew is headed by Sifu Sze Toh, Rachel the host and some other filming crew. The main highlight of the show is to show the spirit after they are dead for 7 days. This is because, it is believe that those who had passed away within 7 days still roams the world as they didn't realized that they are dead. So the first story brings us to a guy who hang himself to death in a house. The girls went back to the house the next day after and sat in the room while chanting and burning some incense paper and some spooky stuff happens. Well you get the picture I guess. And then the second story continues from there and so on.

So what do I think? Well, it's a bit fake to me or pre-planned at least. For starter, there is always some ceremony going on every time they arrived at all the shaman's house, and they are permitted to record the whole process. For me it's not to horrifying but rather gruesome. For instance, there is one shaman who bite a live chicken to death to feed his small spirit. The last part as mentioned was filmed in Ipoh, Malaysia. They are guided by a local girl who at the end got possessed by a spirit while they are playing the Oouji board game. How predictable can they get. Anyway, it's a good cheap thrill movie if you are in for it. Not too lengthy and it's straight to the point but there are no conclusion to it. So it left me hanging especially the last part. You need to watch it to know what I am talking about. (Rating: 3.5 out of 5.0)
