Twenty years ago, an inexplicable mass suicide occurred in the millionare Yang household, where the entire family hanged themselves at the exact same time. Only one member survived. To this day, the case remains unsovled. Now, a distant relative inherits the house and moves in with his fiancee. Mysterious events begin to disturb their lives and force them to confront the evil within. The demented legacy of the Yang family comes full circle and the curse left behind is reborn.

Some may think that supernatural stories are played out. We've had plenty here in the states and we're getting much more overseas. What I love about each of these movies is that they're not so repetitive. You get tired of seeing the same thing over and over again, but with these kind of thrillers we always get something different. Sure the ghosts are there but the stories are different and the way the characters are presented is what makes each film stand alone. There are some many movies that I can name which carry the same overall topic but each of those movies you see in the stores are different from each other in one way or another. You don't have to watch these movies for the scares even though it's fun to be scared. You can just sit down and watch it for the story and the relationships between the characters. Heirloom to me is one of those movies. Sure it's a movie about an unknown supernatural force but it's the films story that draws you in. Heirloom isn't really scary and I don't believe it was made to be a scary movie. What makes Heirloom so great and powerful is the plot and the twists that you figure out as you go along.

Heirloom tells the story of a man who inherits an old family house. As he checks the place out he decides to move in and bring his fianc?e along. As they stay in the house the man slowly begins to remember parts from his childhood, bringing back old memories that were forgotten with age. The house has a dark history, in which thirty years prior the entire family attended bizarre rituals an ended up committing suicide all at the same time. Each relative hung on a rope to die. While the man is unaware of his family's history he begins to witness some strange happenings involving the old house.

This isn't a review as such - I just wanted to point out that this is a Taiwan production, and not a film from Thailand, as previously stated.

The movie started with the simple explaination of a supernatural black arts of keeping a child ghost so fortune would come their way easily. But of course, anyone who practice such arts should know that it comes with a price. A horrible price and James (Jason Chang) was about to learn how he had to pay for the sins of his ancestors.

James had inherit the Yang Mansion 20 years later after the entire household except one died in an inexplicable mass suicide by hanged to their deaths in the same hour, place and height, leaving the case unsolved due to it's mysterious circumstances. James decided to accept his inheritance so he could live there with his wife to be, Yo (Terri Kwan). To celebrate their new found fortune, James and Yo invited their close friends, Yi-Cheng and Ah-Tseng, to sleep over with them in the huge place.

As the supernatural events unfold, James and Yo unveil the secrets of James family fortune. They found out how James's famly fortune was built on the aid of a baby ghost who fed on blood and refused the opportunity to reincarnate and somehow kind of back fired on his family after a while.

Do not expect any ghostly apparition in this movie cause the movie orbits around the tragedy of James' ancestry and the Baby ghost was only a secondary factor in this movie. It's sad that I can't seem to connect with the main characters in this movie. I guess this movie just implies how some people just morally wrong. great lightnings and scenes though. I had my edge of the seat moments while waiting this but the usual mental horror tugger for asian's horror flicks seemed to be barely available in this movie.

Having taken in a number of Asian horror films in recent weeks, I have been pleasantly surprised by most. Even those films that were not wholly successful still managed to engage me with original ideas and/or ambitious narratives. I looked forward to "The Heirloom," then, an old fashioned ghost story from Taiwan. After a vivid and macabre opening in which a dozen members of one family hang themselves together (it's an unsettling visual), I prepared myself for a fun ride. However, after the initial setup, Leste Chen's "The Heirloom" settles into a very familiar pattern. It becomes apparent that we are going to be engaged in a thriller in which a house is possessed by evil spirits and those spirits will affect those who come into contact with them--sort of like an Asian "Amityville Horror."

The film, in its opening scenes, establishes that the wealthy Yang family came to prosperity by worshipping the dark arts--specifically calling on the powers of child-ghosts. The Yangs, therefore, are the family in the aforementioned mass suicide by hanging. Dealing with the dark arts isn't always as appealing as it may at first seem! Years later, James (Jason Yang) inherits the old mansion without knowing much of his family's history. He promptly moves in with his fiance Yo (Terri Kwan). Of course, it doesn't take long before strange occurrences begin--noises, visions, etc. Most alarmingly, the house seems to be driving their friends crazy! It is a well-worn question in films of this type, "Why, oh why, don't they just leave?" Yo does ask this question, a little late in the game for my taste, but is dismissed by James--which should be a bit alarming due to all that has transpired to this point.
