The Devil's Box (1984)
Reviewed by: STSH on 2002-12-13
Summary: Occasionally scary, mostly dull
If you like watching Simon Yam, you may well like this film. He is onscreen for about 3/4 of the film, and the story is built around his character.

There are a few scenes which are quite creepy. Newton Lai comes back several times, fighting off snaking pieces of film which are strangling him. And the scene where a girl is strangled while being dragged downstairs is quite unsettling.

But the whole story seems pointless. Most of it consists of Simon being pursued. His efforts to fight back are puny, and the ending made me wonder why I bothered watching till the end.
