Taiwanese horror flick "The Tag-Along (紅衣小女孩)" will be screened in Paris on March 10 as part of the supernatural-themed 2019 Foreign Cinema Week (Semaine des cinémas étrangers) organized by the Forum des instituts culturels Etrangers a Paris (FICEP).
Property agent Wei lives with his grandmother until she suddenly disappears without a reason, yet household chores are still being completed on a daily basis ― the laundry is done, the house is well-cleaned as usual, and even Wei's breakfast remains prepared every morning. In a clueless search for her, Wei finds an unsettling video in his neighbor's camera, where a little girl dressed in red follows his grandmother on a mountain hike.
When Wei's grandmother finally returns, Wei goes missing instead. Wei's girlfriend, Yi-chun, slowly uncovers how the mysterious disappearances are connected to the 1998 urban legend of "The Little Girl in Red,”" and that the worst is yet to come.
"The Tag-Along" is the first film in a horror trilogy envisioned by filmmaker Cheng Wei-hao (程偉豪) and scriptwriter Chien Shih-keng (簡士耕), and featuring strong performances by River Huang (黃河), Hsu Wei-ning (許瑋甯), and Liu Yin-shang (劉引商). Released in 2015, it was nominated for four Golden Horse Awards, with Huang and Hsu being respectively named best actor and actress by the 18th Taipei Film Awards.
A sequel, "The Tag-Along 2 (紅衣小女孩2)," was released in 2017, followed by a special prequel, "The Tag-Along: The Devil Fish (人面魚：紅衣小女孩外傳)," in 2018.
The Foreign Cinema Week, an annual event founded in Paris to celebrate cultural diversity, will be screening 24 films from 19 nations under the theme "Fantastic (fantastique)" this year.
