Asia Filmfest - Carved - The Slit-Mouthed Woman
The second movie was a horror movie called "Carved - The Slit-Mouthed Woman". Even though the movie was frightening at times it isn´t a movie which you have to have seen.
About the movie:
"Legend holds that thirty years ago, a suburban town was terrorized by the spirit of a woman whose beautiful face had been grotesquely disfigured by a jealous husband. Roaming the streets wearing a long coat and surgical mask, the spirit would approach young victims and, while removing her mask, ask "Am I pretty?" The victim's response would almost always lead to their violent death.
Now, one by one, children are disappearing again. As teachers and officials desperately begin to investigate, a panic begins to build as the woman's spirit returns for some unfinished business and the town's dark secrets are exposed. “Carved - The Slit-Mouthed Woman“ reminds me of Clive Barker’s “Candyman” in spirit with perhaps Wes Craven’s “Nightmare on Elm Street” thrown in for good."
