a fairly solid Korean slasher, 5 September 2005
Author: movieman_kev from United States

The film starts off with a morgue attendant sewing the eyes of a recent corpse shut, when he leaves the copses eyes pop back open. Flash forward two years and Sun-ae returns to South Korea after being abroad in America for two years appearing to be afraid of a ghost, Kyung-ah whom committed suicide, that she believes is following her around and the spirit wants revenge on something that wronged her. Now someone is murdering her friends. The movie alternates between flashbacks and modern day to create quite a good deal of tension throughout. The acting is good and although I pretty much knew where the plot was going fairly often on, I still enjoyed it. Now I'm looking forward to the directors next film, "Phone" which I heard nothing but good things about.

My Grade: B-

Media Blasters DVD Extras: Making of; Nightmare on Television Promo; Theatrical Trailer; and trailers for "Attack the Gas Station", "Terror Taxi", "Choking Hazard", "Rojo Sangre", "Hiruko the Goblin", "One Missed Call", & "Samurai Resurrection"

Notes: Comes with a holographic slip cover
