Includes time travel, ghosts, cannibalism, and mental patients.
5 August 1999 | by peter-209See all my reviews

The plot of this bizarre film includes time travel, ghosts, cannibalism, and mental patients. Its low-budget approach to production is reminiscent of early Cronenberg and the title is an obvious reference to the Polanski's Tenant (Le Locataire (1976)). Unfortunately, due to poor screenplay and theatrical overacting, often found in Asian films, the final product is much inferior to the work of the both predecessors mentioned above. At times, the film made me laugh and I am not sure if that was the authors' intent.
