Distinctive
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Ah Kam.


Shot on video. A group goes out to a village in the country to track down legends of a mythical beast, called "The Distinctive." A reward has been offered for photos, even more money for hide. The group goes hunting, little knowing that THE DISTINCTIVE is hunting them! Here's something new -- a HK version of the monster-in-the-woods genre. Too bad it is so excruciatingly bad as to rob all enjoyment. The monster never, ever appears. Not even once. Further, although the movie is clearly labeled CAT III, which is frankly why I wanted to watch it, there is a distinct lack of gore or nudity. In fact, none whatsoever. No monster, no gore, no nudity, shot without style, written without craft, what does this movie have? Nothing. Nothing at all.

Rating: Not Recommended (Not Recommended)
