SF-Horror Thriller

The Soul: Taiwanese SF/Horror Thriller which is also a murder mystery and several love stories, set in 2031. The Billionaire owner of a BioTech company is murdered, apparently by his own son. But it's no ordinary murder, Occult Sigils were painted on walls and the killer acted out a ritual as he carried out the deed. The boy's mother had committed suicide 2 years before whist also carrying out a ritual, believing she would return to curse her husband. The dead BioTech mogul's new wife is acting strangely as if possessed, saying she sees the dead woman's (angry) ghost. A family all unhappy in their own ways. The investigating magistrate leading the search for the guilty party has terminal cancer (this is crucial to the unfolding of the narrative). But it's not all Occult and murder, radical RNA transfer techniques are also mixed up in this SF Neo-Noir conundrum. Flashbacks are crucial to understanding what really occurred and with changing identities you will have pay close attention to the story. More than one viewing may be necessary to appreciate the fine details of the plot. There are also several twists and reveals as the intrigue develops. An intricate but engaging film. Written & Directed by Cheng Wei-Hao. On Netflix. 8/10.

Excellent. Refreshing

I just wrote a short scathing review of Stowaway.

This in comparison is how sci-fi drama should be done.

A plot seemingly simple yet twisting and surprising to the very last second and I usually spot the twists miles ahead... It even manages to blend woke elements without being ostentatious.

The cast is natural, the emotional drama is good even when a little over the top.

Mainland China and Taiwan are becoming heavy hitters in the film industry...way to go...

Say what?!!!!

Maybe something was lost in translation but 23 minutes into the film one of the detectives tells the prosecutor the young wife, who was found laying unconscious next to her dead husband, the murder weapon in her hand, should be released because, "she's about to inherit everything and doesn't have a motive." Where, other than Taiwan I guess, could that statement make any sense.
