Abnormal Beauty

Abnormal Beauty (死亡寫真)
Made in: Hong Kong
Language: Cantonese
Director: Oxide Pang Chun
Starring: Race Wong, Rosanne Wong, Anson Leung, Michelle Mee
Year: 2004

Synopsis: Jiney (Race Wong) is a young, troubled art student with a talent for photography. Her best friend is Jas (Rosanne Wong), a surly character who tries too hard to be tough. At school, Jiney is being pursued by a fellow student named Anson (Anson Leung), who never seems to get tired of being treated like a doormat.

One day, Jiney sees a woman get plowed over by a car. Instead of calling the police, she starts snapping pictures of the bleeding corpse (while other witnesses stand around and do nothing). Then, she discovers that death and all things macabre somehow give her inspiration, and she finds herself obsessed with dead things. To present some sort of conflict, Jiney begins receiving videotapes of a masked man committing gruesome murders.

As far as foreign films and horror movies go, this one scores pretty high on the crap meter. Not even hot girls and slick editing can save this self-conscious mess. Watch the entertaining video review above to find out why...
