Editorial Reviews

(Horror) When a Canadian research photographer is killed, leaving behind a photo of a boy in an otherwise empty room, paranormal investigative scientist, Hashimoto, and his team investigate the scene. Armed with a newly invented material they capture the ghost: an unidentified 13-year old boy. Who is this ghost? Why does it kill people? As they seal off the room and monitor the captured spirit, they soon learn that even though it’s energy can be visibly seen, humans are unable to hear it. In an effort to learn the ghost’s past, Hashimoto’s team enlists the help of special agent Ye, gifted with extraordinary eyesight and ability to lip-read. As Ye gets closer to solving the riddle of the boy’s past, he learns the horrifying truth of the boy’s death. Fearing that the ghost child is dangerous, the team decides to isolate the ghost but in doing so they unknowingly unleash a mysterious force, a much more powerful and ferocious energy to which the boy somehow seems connected.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent And Creative Sci-Fi Horror Film! August 2, 2007
Format:DVD
The film SILK is a very different and creative horror film. I also recommend it highly, especially if you are looking for something different in the horror genre. With a mixture of sci-fi and horror thrown together, SILK is one entertaining film. The story centers around a team of paranormal investigators who are led by one stubborn and heavily driven character in search of life after death. His name is Hashimoto,(Yosuke Eguchi), and he is the leader of this special paranormal research team. I found his particular character great. Hashimoto is a man in search of immortality; but one with a catch, as he tries to unravel the secrets of life after death.

Hashimoto recruits a select research team of other investigators, and among these is a police sniper named Tung (Change Chen) who has the ability to read lips. This ability to read lips is of the utmost importance to this group of paranormal researchers, and in particular Hashimoto. Their job? To discover the mystery of a boy who happens to also be a ghost. And this is one malevolent ghost. The film introduces the viewer to what is known as a Menger Sponge. This is where sci-fi meets horror. You see, the Menger Sponge is a special anti-gravity device that can enable the researchers to ensnare ghosts. Moreover, the Menger sponge has been reverted to a liquid spray which allows the researchers to see ghosts.

Personally, I found the film fascinating. This is a very different type of horror film. And I always like something different in the horror genre. Also, the acting in this film was very good. Hashimoto's character is great to watch, but the entire film is outstanding. And there are some sad moments to watch in this film as Hashimoto attempts to learn about the afterlife.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful and immersive sci-fi, horror flick... May 21, 2007
Format:DVD
SILK is a sleeper hit in Asia. I took a chance when I purchased the REGION-3 DTS Hong Kong release and man!, was I pleased with the decision. This is one of the best supernatural thrillers I've seen since SHUTTER, RINGU and THE SIXTH SENSE, and the best thing about it is it doesn't rely on the "WATERLOGGED, long-haired ghost" to achieve thrills. From what I heard the TARTAN release will use the same video transfer as the Deltamac release.

SYPNOSIS:(May have some spoilers)
The film is a mix of SCI-FI and the usual elements of ASIAN HORROR. A group of scientists led by Hashimoto, armed with a newly invented material called the MENGER SPONGE captures the energy of a ghost child. This invention financed/owned by the Japanese government, is quite malleable and can be used as a coat for walls, for camera filters and can be used as an eye-spray to allow the user to see Ghosts.
They enlist the aid of an agent named Ye Tung, a law enforcer from the JCCU, who can read lips and has a gifted eyesight, to assist them in unveiling the mystery of the ghost child. Hashimoto and his team lets the ghost child loose, so that,Ye, aided with the MENGER SPONGE spray, can see a strand of SILK that emanates from the supernatural child, this strand is the key to a mysterious power.
Ye tracks the ghostly boy and the strand to the horrifying truth of the child's death. Fearing that the ghost child is dangerous and for his own hidden agenda, Hashimoto,(and his team) decides to isolate him, but in doing so, they unknowingly unleashed the supernatural force in the other end of the SILK strand, a MUCH more POWERFUL, and MALEVOLENT energy.

This film really kept my attention for the whole 105 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very complete August 11, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I certainly agree with all the other reviews. A complete story, unique imagination, with no "missing links" and had that atmosphere of reality which a lot of other ghost type movies lack which makes a huge difference. Would have been nice if the deleted scenes were not deleted, but nevertheless, a brilliant piece of work I reckon that stands out from the others, and concentrating on detail and coherency from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Under-Rated Ghost Movie That's Very Entertaining February 26, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I think this brought about the one thought many people have around the world which "What Really Happens When We Die". With this movie it shows a few explanations shown to us by a group of Asian scientist who have made an organic protein substance which seems to be able to contain and trap the energies of spirits. Of course the scientist need to know where a real spirit is and with the intro of the movie you see two of the scientist hire a professional photographer to take pictures an a old apartment said to be haunted by the ghost of a young child. As with all horror movies the boy ghost inadvertently kills the photographer by squeezing his heart. Here now comes the part where the head team director hires a professional soldier/cop to be part of the team as he has the training and skills the team director feels to find out the story about the life and death of the young ghost and why he haunts the apartment. Of course there is more to the movie but to really understand it I'd advise just watching the movie. The effects aren't bad don't expect the cgi effects of Hollywood's big producer companies but still for the movie they're still pretty good. The languages are intermixed meaning unlike some dvd's there is only one audio track, so you don't get English/Japanese/Mandarin audio tracks but all these languages are spoken in the movie itself. The video is wide-screen and very sharp and clear so no complaints with this movies picture quality. The extras are some trailers, commentaries, and a few deleted scenes. So if you like movies like The Ring or Ju-on or just like ghost story movies this is a pretty good pick for your home....
