The fourth in a series of South Korean ghost films, all of them set within haunted schools for girls. Like some of the previous instalments, most of the focus on this one is on drama rather than horror, although there are a handful of RING-inspired shock sequences along the way to appease the fans.
This is quite an unwieldy movie that delivers little you'd expect. Once it settles into gear, it feels a bit like an Asian version of GHOST as the spirit of a murdered schoolgirl attempts to figure out the reasons behind her death. Things get stranger as they go on, with the usual bouts of teen hysteria, lesbianism and bratty students. The cast are solid but the direction competent rather than decent, and while this film throws some intriguing slants on the usual ghostly plot lines it's definitely the weakest entry in the series yet.
