Quoted from Twitter @mrcreepyposta and the Lujuba website, the story of the film Incantation (2022) is quite similar to what happened in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. In 2005, the youngest child of the Wu family suddenly became ill after returning from the temple.
The youngest child finally called his eldest brother to return to his hometown. Unfortunately, an unpleasant incident happened to the entire Wu family.
This incident is similar to the story of Li Ronan who 6 years ago went to the sacred village of his lover, Chen Dom and his lover’s cousin, Chen Yuan. Unfortunately the presence of Li Ronan actually became the beginning of disaster.
The three young people actually violated several taboos in the sacred village. It turned out that outsiders who were not from the Chen family were not allowed to come to the village while praying.

After the Wu family’s eldest brother got home, he immediately fell ill. The disturbance was also felt by the father, mother, and other children of the Wu family.
