| Had possibilities, but mainly just silicone and gratuitous sex
A twin receives a package from her sister who was visiting a remote village in Mainland China. She begins to have visions of the sister being in danger and heads to the village herself. On the way, she teams up with 4 others doing a documentary on the worshiping practices of a local cult. They all stay at an old inn and one by one, including some other guests and villagers, disappear.

The plot isn't new, as it mirrors some Hollywood movies of the past. It could have been better with a little less sex (really) and more intrigue. Some of the individual acting wasn't too bad, but the cult was a definite minus. Fortunately, they were only used as a reason for the film crew to be there and not given much camera time.
