Supernatural Thriller NR. When a Canadian research photographer is killed, leaving behind a photo of a boy in an otherwise empty room, paranormal investigative scientist, Hashimoto, and his team investigate the scene. Armed with a newly invented material they capture the ghost: an unidentified 13-year old boy. Who is this ghost? Why does it kill people? As they seal off the room and monitor the captured spirit, they soon learn that even though it’s energy can be visibly seen, humans are unable to hear it. In an effort to learn the ghost’s past, Hashimoto’s team enlists the help of special agent Ye, gifted with extraordinary eyesight and ability to lip-read. As Ye gets closer to solving the riddle of the boy’s past, he learns the horrifying truth of the boy’s death. Fearing that the ghost child is dangerous, the team decides to isolate the ghost but in doing so they unknowingly unleash a mysterious force, a much more powerful and ferocious energy to which the boy somehow seems connected. First off props goes out to Tartan on a very cool box-art and menu set-up, this has nothing to do with the movie itself I know but I found it very slick and the cover will really draw people towards it. Ok, any time you compare a film to "The Eye" it better be good as it 's got some big shoes to fill. Silk is similar in spots to The Eye as well as a few other films in the genre but I think it stands well on it's own. This is a smart,well-thought out thriller that mixes sci-fi with the usual Asian horror fans are use to seeing. there's no flashy scenes with cheap scares, the story is the key here and slowly unravels the mystery while giving some the viewer some great special effects and some very spooky moments along the way, all in just the right places and time in the film. To explain the main theme of the film would ruin it for you but it's not your usual story of a long-haired ghost out for revenge. The cast is fantastic and the characters are all well written and developed. I highly recommend Silk as it is a smart, spooky and breathing supernatural thriller that is a must own for any fan. Released by Tartan Video. ***** Out Of *****
