Hye-jin's homecoming should have been a joyous occasion. She was especially happy to see her childhood friend again, the shy Eun-ju. However, when a secret is revealed, harsh words are exchanged. These words deeply affect Eun-ju and,in the next scene, we see her plummeting from a 30-story building. In a flashback provided by Seon-ae, we learn that the ghost of Eun-ju is hunting down all of Hye-jin's friends and killing them. Is this possible or is a more worldly force at work? What is this mysterious tape that everyone is asking about? Written by

"Gawi"/"Nightmare" is obviously inspired by "Prom Night" and Japanese hit "Ringu",but director Byeong Ki-Ahn managed to generate a wonderfully creepy atmosphere throughout it.The film is extremely well-made and photographed.Ha Ji-weon gives a genuinely unnerving performance as a Kyung-Ah.The scene,where she walks through the busload of corpses with bloodied face,is truly eerie and memorable. The film is pretty standard,but it managed to scare me,so I'd recommend it to anyone interested in horror.There is also a fair amount of blood and gore,so gore-hounds won't be disappointed too.My rating:9 out of 10.
