Horrible Mansion in Wild Village (NaN)
Horrible Mansion in Wild Village (with ï¿½Mansionï¿½ spelled as ï¿½Masionï¿½ in posters and credits), is a shockingly amateurish little horror film in which a reckless young biker (Cai Juntao) has an accident and ends up seeking help in a decrepit old mansion inhabited by a little girl (Jia Lin) and her stern grandmother (Kara Hui). And a terrifying and mysterious horned creature. And a mute girl locked up in the attic. From this familiar but decent premise, director Lu Shiyu makes his film an endless ï¿½ though only 80 minutes long ï¿½ series of shrieky nightmare sequences (the main character wakes up with a jolt roughly once every two minutes), ham-fisted flashbacks and trite stalking scenes.
