Having been offered a weekend job as Chinese language translators, they travel to an old English family mansion in the countryside to transcribe the films of a Chinese Kunqu Opera star Susu, who married into the English family. Though the two girls are intrigued by the mansion's enormous collection of items from the golden age of cinema, Qi'an and Aimo quickly become unsettled by the strange environment and the mansion's occupants, hoping to get out of there as soon as possible. Their exit is delayed, though, with the arrival of the handsome heir to the house, Benjamin; both girls develop an affection for him, leading to a growing tension between the two friends. But when Aimo goes missing, Qi'an discovers the disturbing secrets that the mansion's occupants would rather not reveal."

    The first horror film Tamika watched was Child's Play. Being eight years old at the time, she remembers being so scared when Chucky came to life that she projectile vomited. It's tough for her to choose only one movie as her favorite horror film, so she picked two: Nosferatu and The Stepford Wives (1975).
