Horror Hotline...Big Head Monster
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Cheang Pou-Soi.


Francis Ng is a producer of a radio call-in show about supernatural phenomenon. When a reporter (Josie Ho) and film crew from the U.S. show up to get an in-depth story, they follow the lead of a particularly strange caller, who talked about a childhood encounter with a "Big Head Monster." The story builds suspense nicely and is very enjoyable despite sub-par performances by Josie Ho (speaking almost entirely in English) and her gwailo film crew; unfortunately, the originality craps out at the end and it becomes something of a BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. The DVD gives you a second ending to choose from, too bad it isn't any good either.

Rating: Marginally Recommended (Marginally Recommended)
