Movie: Womb Ghosts (2010)

Womb Ghost / ζΆθƒŽ (2010) is the latest low-budget horror movie in Hong Kong's movie industry.

Basically, this movie's main plot consists of a few stand-alone yet subtly interconnected sub-plots. The first 45 minutes or so could be quite confusing as the sub-plots roll out one by one. Each sub-plot features different characters. It takes some time to figure out the difference of every character.

Sub-plot #1: Winnie and Zoe are strangers to one another, yet their lives are somehow interrelated by events of fate. Winnie is facing marital problems with her doctor husband, Joseph. To make things worse, her latest pregnancy ends tragically with a miscarriage.

Sub-plot #2: Zoe is having an affair with Joseph, Winnie's husband. She works as a nurse at the hospital where Joseph works.

Sub-plot #3: Zoe's father works as a sorcerer who keeps a young ghost in captivity to help his fortune-telling business by cheating unsuspecting customers.

Sub-plot #4: Zoe begins to be tormented by strange visions of young, sinister she-ghosts.

Honestly speaking, the way the sub-plots are arranged and related to present the big picture could be done better. The story is pretty straightforward but the way it's presented lacks momentum, draggy, and confuses viewers at certain crucial junctures.

One more point, the young actresses who act as nurses somehow have similar looks and it's hard to differentiate the lead (Zoe) from the extras. The confusing sub-plot arrangement doesn't help to make things better.

All in all, it could be done better. Catch it on DVD if you want to watch a mild Hong Kong horror movie.
