The advancement of technology made satisfying human lust easy through peeping. Unknown to the people who commit this sin, they are being watched too. Their sinful action eventually leads to death...


Think we’d be quick to diss this Hong Kong slasher-horror flick? Well, think again – we do give credit where it’s due.

Race Wong (Oxide Pang’s Ab-normal Beauty) of Hong Kong girl-band 2R and Wong You Nam (Fruit Chan’s Hollywood Hong Kong) of Hong Kong boy-band Shine star in this movie about, brace yourself for this: the phenomenal state of things that is called technology. The story takes place at a motel where youngsters rent rooms for all sorts of reasons. What they do not know is that there is a pair of eyes seeing overlooking everything they do in their rooms – via a Closed Circuit Television (CCTV).

This is somewhat clever because the movie mentions something about a pair of eyes overlooking all human beings up there. Hence, we shouldn’t do bad things in fear of being punished.

Independent director Carol Lai translates the concept vividly to this feature film, though it ultimately becomes a blood-fest where lots of the red liquid gets splashed and squirted around, complete with chopping up of limbs.

We pity the poor occupants of the motel, really.

Elsewhere, the director engages some nice use of graphics and stop-motion in some scenes to very good effect. They are definitely not your mediocre and second-rate effects that serve no purpose except to show off the graphic artists’ limited talents.

The two young leads play their characters with just the right amount of geek and lovability. Veteran actor Liu Kai Chi’s (Dragon Squad, Protégé) final scene as a psycho in a white raincoat and a plastic sheet around the face is a successful characterization of someone we’d fear in a run-down building.

So when we don’t really buy the baddie’s justification for going on a killing spree, we chose forgive the movie’s failure to convince us in that aspect.

We don’t want the eyes up there to see how mean we are, in fear of some very terrible consequences.
