I was bitterly disappointed at this Korean attempt at a scary thriller. Having been a Big fan of Asian horror, and a huge fan of Korean film, I guess I felt the disappointment even more.
The scares were unbelievably predictable, and the reactions were even more questionable. I just felt that it wasn't sure what it wanted to be, and seemed to be an attempt to cash on in several other genre flicks.
For those out there who haven't seen the Ju-on's, or Ringu's, or the many more like it, you may get a few scares, but they are few and far between.
But for those of you (like me) who have an extensive collection of superior Asian (or Western horror) I really think you should not bother. You'll just get annoyed (as I did).
I give it a 3/10
