A terrible childhood trauma resulted in Yue being institutionalized. Her older sister Xi became a successful author. After Yue is released the two sisters return to their childhood home, where they are soon confronted with occurrences they cannot explain … and the bottled up dread.
The director James Lee became a pioneer of Malay new wave cinema in the 2000s, yet in the last decade he has reinvented himself as a director of cheap and effective genre films. Two Sisters demonstrates Lee’s ingenuity in the most horrific manner: by concentrating on the psychological aspect of horror, he gives supposedly well-known genre patterns an entirely new unsettling slow-burn potential.

James Lee
