The Tag-Along - Taiwan's highest-grossing horror film of the last 10 years. Out now on HK DVD and Blu-ray.


One of Taiwan's most notorious urban legends comes to unholy life in this box-office hit from 2015. On HK DVD and Blu-ray with English subs and  creepy children!



THE TAG-ALONG

The premise of The Tag-Along is an urban legend that has fascinated and spooked Taiwan since the 1990s: a famous home video that was shot in Taichung by a group of climbers and broadcast on television in 1998 shows a little girl in a red dress following the group on their hike. She could be seen tagging along one specific hiker who passed away shortly after.

When the family sat down and watched the video, no one remembered seeing the girl at any time during the trip. After handing the video over to a TV station, the family member who provided the tape died in a car crash.
In the years since, people who passed that mountain area reported sightings of a little girl in a strange red dress and so people started to believe she is Moxina, a mountain demon that steals children and the elderly.  

Director Wei-Hao Cheng takes the tale and gives it a twist of eco-horror cinema. That seemed to have hit a nerve as The Tag-Along has become Taiwan's highest-grossing horror film in the last 10 years and feels like a last hurrah of asian horror movies until Sadako vs. Kayako will put the genre to rest.
