Storyline

When the police raid the compound of a religious cult, they discover that almost all of the members have committed suicide. The only survivor, laying on an altar in the middle of the room, is a very pregnant woman who goes into labor as the raid begins. The woman dies in the hospital, but her child survives. 20 years later, strange things are starting to happen around the child, now a grown woman. A group of religious warriors from a mix of faiths join together to try and protect her from whatever supernatural horrors are seeking her out. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

A great start...
29 September 2000 | by (Vancouver, BC) – See all my reviews

My friend rented this feature at my local Hong Kong video store, this Korean Horror film is really quite interesting. The effects are top notch, the premise and characters are beautifully fleshed out and the suspense is built up perfectly.

For a first feature, KC Park did a marvelous job, and I hope this becomes a series. I look forward to Park's next film.
