Last Saturday, I watched the special preview of the latest horror action comedy TWISTED (撞鬼) at Shaw Lido. (Special thanks to for the invitation!) And it was my first time watching at Shaw Lido threatre since its renovation - a pretty major transformation that gives the place a total brand new look.. Posh, Clean and nice.. and all the seats are leather (or synthetic leather). * Opps I know I digress.. ok back to the movie...

The story of TWISTED revolves around a drug dealer who impregnated a girl, a pair of conmen 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.

Before the screening of the movie, most of the actors and actresses made their appearance and shared with us about the movie.

When it was comedian Mark Lee's turn, he joked with us (in hokkien) that Linda Liao could not make it to this preview because she got no money to fly to Singapore, and that this movie want to convey to us that if our hearts got ghost, there will be ghost, and even see Zhu Mi Mi will think she's ghost! (the way he said that was so funny that made everyone laughed!)

Twisted is made up of 3 stories...

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. Don't you think Mark look super hilarious in this sport rims outfit? Anyway, this story is very funny and I was laughing all the way instead of feeling scared.

Cavin and Randall (starring Cavin Soh, Randall Tan) spike the drinks of their colleagues, Linda and Tracy (starring Linda Liao, Tracy Lee) during a night out at the club. Watch Pretty Linda Liao and Tracy Lee in action....

Fa (starring Zhu Mimi) and her daughter, Yi Ning (starring Joey Leong) were victims of her abusive husband. Fa who sensed that her daughter was being possessed went to seek help of two mediums. Personally I find this story the best out of the 3, because it kept me in suspense wanting to know what would happen next...

Among these seemingly unrelated characters, their paths crossed and intertwined… Somehow, ill-luck seems to transcend the characters.
This is a story of individuals with fates intertwined and their paths collided. A series of twisted events that is a study on cause and effect and how our actions affect the people around us.

I find that this movie is more of a comedy with a mix of violence and some horror at certain parts. However, it did leave me ponder over Karma ... If people did not do bad/evil things in the first place, bad karma would not have fallen upon them.. Will guys who play/slept with women behind their wives' backs be awaken and repent after watching Twisted?
Catch Twisted when it opens in Singapore on July 28, 2011..
