DVD: Đêm Trong Căn Nhà Hoang
You don’t believe in ghost?
The two worlds never meet?
Night in an Abandon House will give you a different view.
“Đêm Trong Căn Nhà Hoang” temporary translated, as "Night in an Abandon House" is a DVD movie based on the audiotape of scary ghost stories from writer Nguyễn Ngọc Ngạn starring Thúy Nga’s executive producer Huỳnh Thi (Dr. Lộc). Dr. Lộc has always believed in science so stories about ghosts are considered fictitious. But all until one day when he traveled from Saigon to the western district area on a new duty and moved into an abandon house. On the very first night, strange things happened that completely changed his mind and he was happy to survive a night in the abandon house. Based on a true story, this movie also starred Monalisa Nguyễn as Thanh Tâm, Ngọc Đan Thanh as Lộc’s mother and Nguyễn Ngọc Ngạn as the storyteller. The movie is about 2hrs.

I’m a fan of horror movies, but this movie looks bad. (Haha). The trailer is all flashy of images that seem incoherent, and showing some parts of what seems to be scary? And also the screaming sounds that is so typical. The trailer didn’t preview the acting ability of the cast but more like trying to trick us into watching the movie. Maybe this movie will scare little kids. I doubt the actual movie in full length is any good. Also I'm skeptical to see Huỳnh Thi act, considering how horrible he is as a producer lol, just kidding. Those things do not go together- yeah his ability as a producer does not predict his acting ability. Scratch that. Haha. Anyway, I did listen to a few of Nguyễn Ngọc Ngạn’s audiotapes and they were good. However the stories were not very new or different. This movie is based on a true story. I doubt that. Most scary movies say that to hype people up and be more scared I guess. Well, if any of you guys watched the DVD tell me how it goes.
