Further expanding the influence of Asian horror outside of HK, Japan and Korea, writer /director Kelvin Tong brought Singapore's first homegrown horror movie stateside. Earning a record-breaking US$700,000 at the Singapore box office when it opened, The Maid went on to become a word-of-mouth favorite on video shelves when it was released on DVD in the USA. It has never been released in the UK, Australia or Canada.
Lots of surprises, lots of ghosts, and a lot of running away from them. The movie has some nice twists.
Legend has it during the Seventh month on the Chinese calendar, the gates of hell open and the dead rise to walk the Earth. There are rules people must follow for 30 days in order to survive. Break them and you face the haunting consequences of your actions.
Rosa arrives in Singapore from the Philippines to work as a domestic maid. Naive and innocent, she is a non-believer in the supernatural world and ultimately breaks the rules, one by one. Now she will come to understand that the spirits should never be disturbed. This film stars award-winning Italian-Filipino actress Alessandra de Rossi, who earned a Best Actress Award at the Asian Awards Film Festival for her role in the film Small Voices, which was the Philippines’ official entry at the 75th Annual USA Academy Awards in the Best Foreign Language Film category.
