Director David Blyth — the man behind Death Warmed Up, New Zealand’s first horror movie — enters the supernatural with his sixth dramatic feature. Newcomer Yoson An plays a Chinese immigrant whose mother has no idea that he has a Kiwi girlfriend. Insistent on an arranged marriage, she takes him to matchmaker Madam Yin (Geeling Ng), whose idea of the perfect bride sees Jason caught up in the ancient Chinese practise of minghūn: a spirit marriage. After premiering at Auckland's 2013 Asia Pacific Film Festival, Ghost Bride was seen extensively across Asia.
The unique and very entertaining Ghost Bride provides an aspect rarely seen in Ghost/Horror films: detailed character development, and excellent acting, especially from the two leads Rebekah Palmer as Skye and Yoson An as Jason.– Danny Shamon, on website Dan's Movie Report, 21 March 2014
