Plot Summary:
"Director Chi-Leung Law (INNER SENSES) reunites with star Kar Yan Lam for the psychological thriller KOMA. Lam and Angelica Lee (THE EYE) play Ling and Ching, two women from opposite sides of the economic track. A killer is stealing organs from the victims, and socialite Ching suspects that Ling may be the murderer. However, her suspicion is perhaps caused by the fact that both women are involved with the same man. Meanwhile, Ling herself is jealous of Ching's privileged position, and begins following her around. As the murders continue, and Ling and Ching are drawn closer together, the question arises as to who is truly dangerous and who is the less-than-innocent victim."

Koma is one of the weaker Asian fright fests I've seen lately as it uses a popular Western myth and tries to over complicate things, going off in tangents and turning everything into high drama.

The plot sees Angelica Lee stumble (quite literally) across a woman who has woken up in a bath tub only to discover that one of her kidneys has been removed.

This marks the first and last scare in this dull film as it turns into an over the top version of Wild Things fused with Cruel Intentions where everybody is a suspect and yet I couldn't really care, as more time was spent by the two leads bitching about which one their man really loved (these ladies like to share).

OVERALL SUMMARY
Koma looks good, has a good cast and a nice set up, but it was dull and flat and I was shocked to hear the score was a complete rip-off of James Newton Howard's work for Signs.
