Storyline

The teenager Min Ji-won is suffering from amnesia and being haunted by weird visions. When she meets her former high school friend Oh Yu-jeong, she receives a picture of her high school group of friends: Kim Eun-seo, who had recently died; Shin Mi-kyeong, who is in the hospital and Eun-jeong. Ji-won questions who took the picture, and when she visits her former friends, she recalls Han Su-in, a girl that was badly treated and humiliated by their group, disclosing her past and the fate of Su-in and finding a scary hidden truth. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Ghost: generic title; generic film.
4 March 2012 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

When her old school pals start to turn up dead, drowned in seemingly impossible circumstances, amnesiac schoolgirl Min Ji-won (Ha-Neul Kim) attempts to piece together her past and discovers a terrible secret.

The Ghost is a slick, stylish and well acted piece of Korean 'yūrei' horror with all the typical elements one might expect from the genre—the creepy girl with long hair, an excess of water, a mystery to be solved, a unique plot device (amnesia), and a clever turn or twist at the end—but there are two very good reasons why this one hasn't received the Hollywood remake treatment yet: just like its title, it's too bloody generic, and too bloody confusing.

The ghostly occurrences are nothing we haven't seen before in umpteen other Asian horrors, and the revelation in the film's closing moments is so poorly executed that understanding what the hell is going on is nigh on impossible. In the end, The Ghost is just another forgettable entry in an overpopulated and rather tiresome genre.

4.5 out of 10, rounded up to 5 for IMDb.
