A sceptical Australian journalist pursues an exclusive story about a Singaporean medium claiming to have supernatural abilities. The medium’s powers draw her in against her will and brings her perilously close to doom. Loosely based on the Adrian Lim ritual murders in 1980s Singapore, Medium Rare was released as Singapore’s first full length English-language film. The film features familiar local landmarks such as a Peranakan house on Tong Watt Road, a house on Mount Pleasant Drive, Giok Hong Tian Temple on Havelock Road, East Coast Park and the Pan Pacific Hotel.
