"A woman, who believes she has murdered her abusive husband, then sees him return as a vengeful ghost." - IMDB
”Hex is a Shaw Brothers take on the French classic Les Diaboliques; or at least it is for the first thirty minutes or so - but then the film has plenty more tricks up its sleeve from there! This one is much more restrained than the later Shaw Brothers efforts but it generally works well for the most part. The story is full of twists and turns; and while the pacing varies wildly, it's always entertaining. The action takes place around a grimey old swamp and this makes for some great location shots which bode well with the heavy rain that features prominently - especially in the first murder scene. Hex does start to run out of steam a little by the end but there's still a weird kind of exorcism scene with a dancing naked girl that put a smile on my face. I can see why this one is not as highly regarded as the more gonzo stuff such as Seeding of a Ghost or Black Magic but it's definitely worth a look.” - Some Dude On Letterboxd
”A slow-burn Shaw Brothers horror movie from the director of The Boxer's Omen and inspired by Diabolique. Slow, but full of perfect shots. I watched this very early in the morning when it was still dark out and I was barely awake, and I felt that I was in the right mood for this movie's rhythms.” - Some Other Dude On Letterboxd
“What a great experienced I've been through, a film that from the beginning had taken a harsh direction, violence committed by husbands to wives, which succeeded in upsetting me and also fostering various mixed feelings such as sympathy, emotions, etc. it affects me.
I won't go into the story as there are a lot of turns here and there, which is quite brilliant in my opinion. Although many say they are similar to or inspired by Henri-Georges Clouzot's film Les Diabolique (1955) but because I haven't watched it, so I can't compare, and I can say Hex has a pretty good story.
This film also has a good setting, a mansion that is too big, dark and gloomy, which produces a pretty unpleasant atmosphere that supports this film to be even more creepy.
I think there are 2 twist in here, the one in the middle and at the end. The twist ending really leaves my mouth open, even though I often see films that use a twist like this, but here the application feels right and very feasible.” - Some Weirdo On Letterboxd
