"Acacia" stars Hye-jin Shim and Jin-guen Kim as a married couple unable to conceive a child.The husband is a doctor and the wife spends her time judging student art and knitting.Things change when the couple adopts six year old Jin-seong,a mysterious boy obsessed with drawing pictures of an acacia tree that he believes is the reincarnation of his dead mother.Soon the wife becomes pregnant and Jin-seong becomes more unhappy.On one rainy night he disappears mysteriously..."Acacia" is a slow-moving horror film with plenty of creepy atmosphere.It's a psychologically spooky little horror flick with a supremely dark score.The film delivers a few unexpected surprises and is wonderfully shot and photographed,so if you are a fan of Asian horror you can't miss it.8 out of 10.
