As the Asian community takes a closer step towards the Lunar seventh month, which is also widely known as the month of the Hungry Ghost Festival, most of us will be anticipating Getai performances and horror film screenings that will very much instill a dense atmosphere and most importantly allow us to undergo a cultural immersion.

While sombre horror genres might be the most effective in giving us a scare start to the festivity, it is interesting to see Singaporean Writer Director Chai Yee Wei (Blood Ties) offering us his 2nd feature film - Twisted, a horror action comedy.

Twisted is the latest horror action comedy from Writer Director Chai Yee Wei.

The story revolves around a drug dealer who banged up a young girl, a pair of con men who wants to turn over a new leaf, and 4 cabin crews whose lives were turned upside down over a fateful night of drugs and booze. This is a story of individuals with fates intertwined and how their paths clash. A series of twisted events that is both a study on cause and effect, and how our actions affect the people around us.

Starring familiar actors from Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan, this film is a collaboration of some of the best comedic and acting talents from around this region.

Guan (starring Mark Lee) is a flashy, womanizing drug dealer. It was during one of his many flings that he’d knocked up Mimi (starring Candy Lim), who turned obsessive in getting his attention which led to a fatal end. Guan’s ruthless way unknowingly unleashed the devil in Mimi…

Through Guan, two horny cabin crew, Cavin and Randall (starring Cavin Soh, Randall Tan) got their hands on some drugs. Their game plan was to spike the drinks of their colleagues, Linda and Tracy (starring Linda Liao, Tracy Lee) during a night out at the club. Anxious to get fresh of the girls, the eager duo stumbled upon a freak accident. The incident soon snowballed and led to a series of unfortunate happenings, bringing about a display of animalistic survival instinct.

Fa (starring Zhu Mimi) and her daughter, Yi Ning (starring Joey Leong) were victims of her abusive husband. Unable to tolerate the abuse and traumas, Fa killed her husband. The vengeful spirit of her husband swiftly possessed Yi Ning to create harvoc. To save her daughter, she seeks the help of two mediums, who further complicate the issue.

Opens 28 July 2011 Singapore. Malaysia and Taiwan release dates to be announced soon. For more details and content, do visit Twisted official site and Facebook page!
