Re-cycle is the new film from Hong Kong filmmakers the Pang Brothers (The Eye). It starts off as a standard ghost story about a famous novelist starting a new book when a spirit that may have some connection to her fictional character begins haunting her apartment. She then follows the spirit into a hellish underworld.

The film takes an unexpected (and ill-advised) detour into fantasy as it’s revealed that the underworld, which is similar to that of The Cell, is made up of all of the things and people we discard from our lives. Unfortunately, it’s really just an excuse for cool visuals.

Grade: C
