As October is coming to an end, Asian Fear Fest 2014 promises viewers with even more horror and screams. This weekend, you can tune in to Thrill for Bunshinsaba 2 (笔仙2) and The Man Behind The Courtyard House.(守望者)
- Bunshinsaba 2 (笔仙2)
A group of good friends go through a series of horrifying events after they have played BiXian – Chinese Ouija that involves two people holding a pen over paper, supposedly allowing a spirit to channel through them and write answers to questions. It all ended horribly with one of them leaping off a roof to her death. The group reunited two years later and everyone has moved on with their lives. However strange things start to happen and the girls start to die one by one. Has their friend come back to take revenge?
Directed by famed South Korean horror director Byeong-Ki Ahn, the film is a remake of his popular 2000 film Nightmare with a Chinese cast.
- The Man Behind The Courtyard House (守望者)
Four young students visit a village to watch a local customary ceremony and hope to stay at a traditional courtyard house owned by one of the student’s relatives. They are greeted by Chen Zhihui (Simon Yam) who claims to be both the guardian of the place and a distant relative of the owners. Gradually, people start disappearing and everything points to Chen Zhihui, a psychopath killer with a hammer and nails. However, everything is not what it seems as the remaining students find out more about the guardian and the traumatic history tied to the house.
The Man Behind The Courtyard House premieres first and exclusively on 19 October at 11PM on Thrill (Starhub Cable TV Channel 618 and SingTel mioTV Channel 415).
