The Mysterious Family 神秘家族 is a Chinese suspense thriller inspired by a true story that took place in Fujian, China and has become one of the country’s three big murder cases. The plot revolves around a seemingly normal family whose lives are turned upside down after their daughter Miao Miao was raped one rainy evening.
The movie is a Sino-Korean collaboration that brings together Director Park Yuhwan with a diverse cast that hails from Hong Kong, Taiwan and China. Ariel Lin, Jiang Wu, Chen Xiao (Nothing Gold Can Stay) and Kara Hui play the family of four and Blue Lan brings up the rear as the mysterious assailant.
I tend to avoid anything that even slights upon the horror genre like the plague but curiosity got the better of me and now I can’t unsee the freakishly creepy poster. I feel like this could either be really good or a really bad but the cast definitely speaks for itself. It has been two years since filming has wrapped and the movie will finally hit theaters this month.
Release Date: April 21, 2017
