Twelve. PERSONAL REFLECTION

Feng shui is directed decently in a alone manner but it doesn’t frighten me at all. Some inside informations are marked to me like those ba-gua scenes. lotus pess looking. and those focus scenes to Kris but it has no permanent impact. Actually foreign horror films are more trilling to me than those locals I don’t know why but possibly because it was made more creatively and more realistic. Despite of it I praise the manager. author and the dramatis personae for presenting the right feelings on what the film want to state to the people. I thank the film for educating me about ba-gua for what it truly symbolizes.
