day Beijing, drama school students Sisi (He Dujuan) and Ling (Chai Biyun)
are escorted by their boyfriends Xiao (Zak Di) and Mu (Wang Yi) to an
old house in the country where the girls plan to prepare for forthcoming
auditions. Sisi is trying to secure a role in a spooky television drama
called Women in the Courtyard [which is why the house was
chosen] while her friend Feier is hopeful for a supporting female role
in a production of Macbeth. They've rented the place from
an old widower (played by veteran Wu Ma who died shortly after this, his
272nd motion picture performance). During a power outage, the students
decide to take advantage of the old house's atmosphere by playing with
a Bixian Board [a Chinese Ouija] which results in the deadly conjuring
of a female spirit.
David Kuan was so pleased with this film that he invited viewers who were
not completely satisfied to call him personally for a refund (valid only
for the theatrical run). During the end credits [see below, middle] he
ran his mobile phone number with the refund offer. Seemingly, both the
studio and theater audiences were delighted with the movie and David was
given the green light to make a new film Supernatural Events on Campus,
while the movie company produced a Thai sequel FEAR
IS COMING: DEATH IS HERE 2 independently. David was then convinced
to return to his franchise for the second sequel in 2015.
