Martina Chen: “Malice is a dark and powerful Nü Gui (女鬼 nǚ guǐ — female spirit). She possesses an irresistible physical attractiveness, which becomes a tool to manipulate men and explore the concept of obsession. “
Chaz Fenwick: “The film’s premise draws inspiration from Chinese folklore. How did this influence your portrayal of Malice?

I aimed to embody the nu gui’s spirit of vengeance and channel the pain and anger that arise from the injustices she suffered.
