As they press onward, they begin to notice strange similarities between the ill-fated British journey and their own.

Six expedition members cross the Antarctic to reach their ultimate goal. On their Journey they find a Journal from another expedition group 80 years ago...six members as well. The hard journey and unbearable cold is driving them to limits and they are witnessing strange things. One member disappears , just on the same spot where a member of the group 80 years ago, disappeared. Coincidence?.......
Well, this film has gotten very negative reviews, and I don't think that's all righteous. The story is rather thin, that's right, but it does not force itself with twists and turns like a lot of other films are doing. It's all about the psychology of the human mind, or maybe it is not.... I think the movie was effectively mysterious and darkly atmospheric and even creepy at times! If you like the Korean film R-POINT than I'm sure you will enjoy this one as well! I think ANTARCTIC JOURNAL was even better than R-POINT in fact! The cast delivers good performances especially Kang Ho-Song (MEMORIES OF MURDER, SYMPATHY FOR MR. VENGEANCE) gives an impressing performance. This film is not brilliant, but it is worth checking out if you enjoy psychological creepy films!!
