This is an entertaining little film, a sort-of Asian-American mumblecore crime-thriller, horror show. Don't expect a big Hollywood production--this is as low-budget as it gets, but more of an indie feel than exploitation. The actors are all young and attractive, especially the lead (Pei Pei Lin), as vicious a villain as you're likely to see onscreen. Definitely R-rated--adult themes and language and many disturbing images. The story takes some surprising turns, occasionally into the weird and supernatural, which takes it up a notch, in my opinion. Basically, without giving anything away: a young man breaks up with his girlfriend and she takes it very, very badly, which leads to all sorts of things, none of them good. Think Fatal Attraction meets The Monkey's Paw, with a crowbar-wielding Jason Meyers in a bride's dress running around. If Hell has no fury like a woman scorned, double it for two women scorned at the same time. Favorite line: "You're a monster. I don't like monsters." Nobody's going to win any Academy Awards on this, but I found it an entertaining 90 minutes of streaming video and look forward to future efforts from the filmmakers involved.

I started watching this movie with low expectations. I heard it was low budget, and never expect much when I go into it. This movie however, surprised me. Of course, it can be seen by the camera quality and ameteur acting that is in in fact low budget, but the story is something fresh and new that I have not seen before. This fits in well with most aisian horror movies I have seen lately, but brings a new story line to the table. I was pleased by how smoothly the story flowed, with only a few moments that were a little strung out. With my low exectations from the beginning, this movie shocked me, and I was glad I watched it.

There were only a few things that bothered me. One was the music and sound quality. The music cut out at random times for speaking, and sometimes gave the wrong feeling. Also, the acting at parts was a little dull. But, for a low budget film, it was definitely better than most I have seen. I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. It is a must see for horror fanatics.

If you liked "The Room," you'll love "The Trinket," a fun little horror movie that's clearly low budget, but certainly not lacking in entertainment value. The music and dialogue may seem campy at times, but the filmmakers certainly created an array of disturbing images that keep the viewer interested in how the film fetale battle will play out.

The film, however, could have probably been told as a short, as some of the shots and scenes did feel a bit long or unnecessary. The acting was at times a little lacking, and at other times it felt like the actors might be intentionally performing so poorly. Often times it felt like there was an overflow of character exposition, ironically juxtaposed with a complete lack of character development. This may be appropriate, however, since the story isn't one about character sympathy (there are very few you could empathize with in the film), but rather a cut-'em-up revenge tale of a scorned woman. Worth a watch!
