Storyline

While investigating the school files, the frightened teacher Mrs. Park startles and calls the young teacher Eun-young Hur, telling her that the deceased Jin-ju Jang is back. The line dies and Mrs. Park is attacked and killed by a ghost. On the next morning, the teenager Jae-yi Yoon waits for her friend Ji-oh Lim, who has the ability to call the spirits, and they begin a close friendship. The abusive and aggressive Mr. Oh, a.k.a. Mad Dog, is the substitute of Mrs. Park and prohibits Ji-oh to paint and compares the performances of the pretty So-young Park and the weird Jung-sook Kim, raising a barrier between the two former friends. Miss Hur misses her former friend Jin-ju, who committed suicide, and while trying to contact her, she discloses a dark secret about the past of her friend and Mrs. Park.

A ghostly school tale with not enough class.
18 March 2010 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Whispering Corridors is yet another in a long line of Asian horrors, one so popular that it has spawned four sequels (at the time of writing) and I'm sure already has many fans. Unfortunately, I'm not one of them.

It tells the story of a ghost haunting a school and along the way we get to see friendships develop and wear away between teenage girls, some assisted "suicide", abusive teaching methods and the usual build up of revelations on the way to a tense finale . . . . . well, what should be a tense finale.

Whispering Corridors failed, for me, on many levels. The acting was okay for the most part but nothing special, the direction from Ki-hyeong Park never seemed to effectively display the scares and the story is full of elements we're all now far too familiar with.

Personally, I'd recommend that people give this one a miss but the annoying thing is that I will now be checking out all of the sequels because curiosity always gets the better of me.
