Night Corridor (2003)

Coming in at a running time of 75 minutes when any good film runs about an hour and a half or better, Night Corridor is a convoluted, conflicted work that goes nowhere fast. Frankly, I find it hard to believe that novelist Julian Lee Chi-Chiu got a second chance to adapt one of his books after the mess he made of The Accident (1999).

Night Corridor features Daniel Wu Yin-Cho who also produced the film with Stanley Kwan Kam-Pang. Wu is a talented actor and this film shows that he is willing to take chances with his image and tackle controversial subject matter. Director Lee does manage to create some genuinely spooky moments but it just mostly obscure and confusing, probably due to the truncated length. This one is for Daniel Wu completists only.
