Visits: Hungry Ghost Anthology
Four young directors from Malaysia s new wave of cinema pool their talents for this anthology of wicked horror tales set during the Chinese Hungry Ghosts Festival in cosmopolitan Kuala Lumpur.
Low Ngai Yuen s 1413 is a tale of teenage suicide gone awry. In WAITING FOR THEM, James Lee (The Beautiful Washing Machine) follows the misadventures of two friends who let a bona fide ghost come between them. NODDING SCOOP by Ng Tian Hann concerns a filmmaker who shoots a freaky ritual in which participants call forth a spirit that makes predictions, and ANYBODY HOME by Yuhang Ho is a story of deadly obsession.
