Nice horror movie, 14 March 2004
Author: PeterRoeder from Lyngby, Denmark

although not quite as good as Ringu or Dark Water - or even Oodhishon - this movie is very interesting and a good horror movie from Korea. The little girl plays enormously well - it is amazing that such a young girl can perform like that. The horror elements are quite good, and the story is pretty good. I wonder why all Asian horror movies contain classical music? Anyway, I really enjoyed watching this movie and I am hopeful that Asian horror will at least stay on this enormously high level which it has achieved in recent years. The ghost story in Phone blends well with the drama, and like in Oodishon, sometimes it is difficult to know what is real and what is not. The lead role is so beautiful. I thought she is very attractive and that might remove some of the horror. Anyway, this movie is not as scary as Ringu or Dark Water. It does contain a few chills though, and I actually had to watch it at daylight because when I saw some of the first scene in the elevator I thought we would see a re-run of the unbelievable terror and ghostly "realism" of "Dark Water". "Phone" is highly recommended! 7/10.
