The Tag-Along is a Taiwanese horror movie released in 2015. Directed by Wei-hao Cheng, the movie is inspired by a popular Taiwanese urban legend about a mysterious little girl who follows people around. The film stars Wei-Ning Hsu as Wei, a realtor who encounters the girl while trying to sell a home, and River Huang as Ting, Wei's girlfriend, who becomes involved in the mystery surrounding the girl's disappearance.

The movie starts with Wei focusing on his work to sell a difficult property to a client, but is constantly interrupted by a young girl who keeps appearing at the property. Wei doesn't think much of the girl until she starts to follow him home, and he realizes she might be one of the many missing children. The little girl appears to be mute, and Wei feels a sense of responsibility towards her, so he starts to investigate her past.

As Wei digs deeper, he discovers that the little girl is connected to a gruesome incident that occurred in the area years ago. The incident involved a woman called Auntie, who was said to have performed black magic and become possessed by spirits. Auntie was rumored to have abducted several children and sacrificed them in her rituals. Wei learns that the little girl is one of the children who went missing at that time, and realizes that she might be haunting him for unknown reasons.

Wei becomes increasingly obsessed with the girl's backstory, and his relationship with Ting starts to suffer. Ting initially encourages Wei's investigation, but as Wei becomes more and more involved, she becomes scared by his determination to uncover the truth. She starts having nightmares involving the little girl, and the couple's relationship becomes strained.

As Wei continues his search, he becomes more entangled with Auntie and her dark rituals. His obsession with the little girl puts his life and those around him in danger, and he realizes that the situation is much more complicated than he ever imagined. Wei calls in help from a spiritual medium, who helps him to understand that he is dealing with powerful spirits, and ultimately the conflict comes to a head with a shocking and terrifying climax.

The Tag-Along is a well-crafted horror movie that will satisfy fans of the genre. It is eerie, spooky, and at times quite scary, as it takes the audience on a journey through the dark and terrible secrets of Taiwanese folklore. The movie explores themes of dark magic, possession, and the loss of innocence, and it does so with originality and skill. But, what sets this film apart from other horror movies is the fact that it is based on a real urban legend, adding an element of truth to the terror.

The cast is superb, particularly Wei-Ning Hsu, who plays Wei with great intensity and a convincing sense of dread. His character's transformation from skeptic to believer is convincing, and the audience can feel his fear increasing as he uncovers the gruesome truth behind the little girl's disappearance. River Huang as Ting is also quite good, portraying the concerned girlfriend convincingly and adding a much-needed sense of grounding and normalcy in this horror movie.

The movie is well-directed, and the pacing is tight, keeping the audience engaged throughout. The cinematography is excellent, particularly during the night scenes, which are particularly effective in building a sense of anxiety and anticipation. Special effects are used sparingly but effectively, adding extra chills to the already-frightening story.

Overall, The Tag-Along is a must-watch horror movie, particularly for those interested in Taiwanese folklore and urban legends. Tense, intriguing, and ultimately terrifying, the movie is sure to entertain and scare its viewers. Its unique approach to horror storytelling and masterful execution make this movie an excellent addition to the genre.
