Secrets in the Hot Spring: The next level of goofy

The marketing for Secrets in the Hot Spring clearly failed miserably because at time of writing the film has less than 50 ratings on IMDB and zero reviews. I am breaking the cherry and telling you about this obscure little Taiwanese comedy horror.

It's such a strange little film, it tells the story of a young man who goes to visit his late parents hotel now run by his grandparents. In tow are two of his friends (And I use that term loosely) and they discover the property might be haunted.

It's brand of humor is a strange one, namely it's very very camp and the whole movie comes across rather homo-erotic considerably throughout. Taking a step back and looking at the film I do not think that was even remotely intentional either.

The film has its laughs, but most are so silly and childish they'll appeal to children yet the horror is certainly not appropriate for them. For this reason the movie falls into a very strange limbo where I'm not sure who the demographic is!

Most of the movies characters are deeply annoying which is exacerbated by the previously mentioned puerile comedy.

It's an odd little film and it's not bad, it's just excessively goofy and I have no idea who it was really made for.

The Good:

Some funny moments

The Bad:

A lot of it gets real old real fast

Just plain silly

Annoying characters

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

I've never used a hot spring and would like to rectify that!

Woolen knee pads and fingerless mittens are adorable and need to be a thing for all girls

Didn't expect it

It was holesome, funny, and absolutely going on the great movie shelf. I wouldn't say it's 100% original by any means, but it does give a new spin on creating character development that I'd like to see more of! Gimme a sequel!!!

Misunderstood little gem

I think a lot of people misunderstood the point of this movie, which is sad as it showed a lot of promise, and you can see the thoughtful details that went into creating this. It might be misbranded as a horror film; technically it is, and yet the whole thing is camp-y horror, which makes this film an actual comedy. There were a few moments or lines that were bad, but this movie took the whole campy horror/comedy genre to a whole new level: it deconstructed cliches and added some touching moments to the story. The whole thing's clever, including the storyline, as you see everything explained in the end. Maybe some may have noticed some things left unexplained, but hey, very, very few films have actually been able to deliver. Tight storyline, likeable characters, re-imagining the genre of horror-slash-comedy, and a beautiful set, too. I think this is a largely misunderstood gem of a film, and I hope to see more of this kind on the future.
