This horror/sci-fi film comes from the Hong Kong filmmakers Oxide and Danny Pang, who are best known for making the Chinese horror film THE EYE. The story places a writer in a fantasy world where her discarded ideas go. Writers discard a lot of ideas. Like a writers trash bin this film is filled with a bunch of disjointed and under developed ideas.
Ting-yin (Angelica Lee, THE EYE) is the successful writer of a series of romance novels. She’s having trouble coming up with new material and her publisher is eager to get another book from the hot writer on shelves. In a very unfair push during a press conference for the film adaptation of her love stories, her agent Lawrence (Laurence Chou, THE EYE) announces that her new book is titled “The Recycle” and will deal with supernatural themes. Ting-yin gets to work on the new book, but isn’t satisfied. During the writing, she seems to be plagued by inexplicable events. Finally she decides to delete her novel and start over. Once she does she’s transported into the world she created, trapped within a series of her rejected things.
