Last Wednesday, AfterImages premiered at the Grand Cathay
I’m the biggest horror movie fan ever and the greatest challenge I have to face is…
finding company to watch a horror movie together

Everyone’s saying that I’m fearless and have the courage to watch these movies
Well, let’s leave horror-movie-going stories to another day

Last week, I’ve got company!

The cast of the movie were invited on stage and introduced before the actual screening.
The director mentioned that AfterImages took 3 years to be produced
That was really a good 3 years of effort put into this film

An awesome blend of asian superstitions with horror
I find myself looking forward the next story as soon as one ended
It’s always a new form of horror to me and I have this inexplicable excitement to know what it will be

I personally like the First Story best
Ghost Pool Leg
I wonder if anyone has gone swimming at night before and felt that there’s something holding your leg back even when it’s obvious there’s no one else in the pool with youMy mum cautioned me when I was younger to not swim after night fall and I’ve taken her seriously since i was 12
So no more swimming in the dark as I really felt the “leg-pulling” sensation the last time I swam in the dark
