An Unusual Movie

(4 out of 5 stars)
"This movie has a sort of unusual atmosphere about it.
I think it may have something to do with how the lighting was done.
The story itself is also rather unique but it brings in many tried and true horror movie ideas such as magical pendants, zombies, and a mysterious god that grants eternal youth to people (for a price that is).
This is sort of a fun movie to watch. Because of the dark humor you never really take it too seriously.
James Hong is actually quite comical at times and never really becomes a frightening character in this movie.
Don't get impatient and turn it off before the last 30 seconds or so which contains the most dramatic scene in the entire movie.
