I admit I was skeptical before watching the show. A Singaporean horror movie about a Fillipino maid? Hmm….

Rosa (Alessandra De Rossi) arrives in Singapore on the first day of the Seventh Month to work as a domestic maid. Her employers, acted by veterans Chen Shu Cheng and Hong Hui Fang, look pale and haunting. The starting was kind of lame, as though I had seen some scenes somewhere else like Ju-On.

However, as Hong Hui Fang started sprouting chants in Teochew, the scary moments start to seep in. Those of you who often share ghost stories with friends, would find some of the scenarios familiar and creepy. The seven month wayang shows, the old lady who sells newspapers at the bus stop, the school children knocked down by the car…. *Shudder*. Borrowing a line from STB, this movie is “Uniquely Singapore”.

Kevin Tong does not disappoint. The eyes of the 3 main leads tell a lot of stories. Look out for newcomer Benny Soh. For every good ghost story, there must be a twist, and it has a well written one indeed.
