'Conjuring Spirit' is my very first Vietnamese movie and I went in to the theatre without any expectations, but it was surprisingly good!
The story is about an author, Lan (played by Phuong Mai) who decides to leave her cheating husband and moves out with her 5-year-old son, Bi. The pain of the betrayal keeps haunting her and she needs to be under medication in order to improve her mental condition.
She rents a very old apartment to start a new life with her son. Upon paying the rent, a music box was given to her, and which was then passed on to her son. Since then, many strange occurrences begin, and she believes that something evil is coming from the music box
Although, I couldn't understand a single word of what the characters were saying (need not worry, subtitles are available). The loud sound effects are enough to scare me off. The music box looks creepy and the melody coming from the box really sends chills down my spine.
This movie is a mixture of the horror and comedy genre, and the whole show was well-balanced as it helped us to calm down from our shocks of fright from some jump-scare scenes in the movie. There is a BIG TWIST at the end of the movie, so make sure you don't miss the last part.
'Conjuring Spirit' is pretty entertaining and the fright level is decent too. Although, the plot was pretty cliché for a horror movie, but I still enjoyed it. I had the pleasure to watch the special preview all thanks to Clover Films. The premiere date is on the 14th May 2015.
