Considerably better -- and far more intriguing -- than most entry-level horror pics, marrying a retro B-movie setup with the ghostly obsessions of recent Asian extreme cinema.

The movie draws upon so many influences -- stylized Hitchcock suspense, surreal Asian horror and the Gothic romance of Britain's Hammer Studios -- it's easier to follow the reference points than the plot.

Adapting his own novel, [director] Davlin seems blessedly unaware of how silly his story is, attacking it with such escalating melodramatic fervor that Memory rises from the disastrously campy to the bizarrely hypnotic.

It's very hard to write a positive review of a movie which is not appealing on a first sight for the most of the viewers... but I'll do just that!… More
