Melissa and Yul, Americans honeymooning in China, come across the exotic 'Hungry Ghost' festival. When night falls, the couple end up in a remote village, and soon realize the legend is all too real. Plunged into an ancient custom they cannot comprehend, the couple must find a way to survive the night of the Seventh Moon.
After watching this, why would you ever go to China???
Or at least out into the out-skirts of China, at night, passed out in the back seat of a cab with some shady fellow driving.
That's what is bestowed upon Melissa(Amy Smart)and her new husband Yul(some dude) as they go to Yul's homeland China for there honeymoon. After some partying they think that they are heading back to where Yul's relatives are but instead are unknowingly being left up for a sacrifice. Oh yeah should've told ya, on the full moon of the seventh lunar month the dead roam the land of China....i guess. To avoid becoming dead guy food, the locals offer up live animals to the deceased. They also need to leave a live human for the dead, and why leave a local when you have two fresh americans to give up?
In all seriousness, this movie is gripping from the get go(probably all the hand held camera)and really never lets up as you feel for these newlyweds lost in this strange land in the dark of night being chased by the dead, which are creepy as they come.
I gave Seventh Moon 4 outta 5 stars only because the hand held camera the whole time gets taxing on the eyes and the ending was a little lacking. All in all though, a nice little horror film that will make you cross China off your list of places to go.......ever.
Props to Ghosthouse Underground for actually making a decent horror flick. I know i haven't seen them all but usually this type of film is like a malnourished animal that never really got a chance. Good job Ghosthouse.
SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
