|In this acclaimed horror tale from China, a couple's illicit affair was discovered by the villagers. To gather money for their exile to the big city, they decided to raid the "virgin tomb", where bodies of girls who committed suicide to keep their chastity are buried. Tragedy and horror soon befall on the couple after they arrived at the city, as one of the dead virgins' spirit begins to haunt them.|
Editor's NoteAn unconventional threesome challenge the boundaries of death and tradition in this atmospheric, sociological horror film from Hong Kong. Sold into marriage while still a child, Qing Hua (Fang Jing) loves both her autistic fiance Sissy (Gao Fei) and orphaned friend Chun Sheng (Wu Jian) in a poor rural village near the Great Wall of China. When the trio's illicit relationship is discovered by the villagers, the lovers flee to the city with money stolen from the grave of a girl who committed suicide to preserve her virginity. But as the threesome settle down into non-traditional domestic bliss, they meet a mysterious young woman who may be the ghost of the dead virgin, or simply their own guilty fears, coming back to haunt them. An exploration of cultural transgression in a repressive society, DARKNESS BRIDE offers a realistic glimpse into the little-seen poverty of daily life in rural China.
