The haunted locker
4 November 2010 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

The locker films are very entertaining and definitely deserves to be watched. The locker- I found this to be a very entertaining film. It has got an original storyline, with some great scares. The scares in this film are relatively original. The hearing of the babies cry really scared me. Tension and fear build up towards the end of the film well. The scariest scene was the one where the girl got possessed and hung herself. The ending of this film was a very sad and touching one. This film has got very solid mystery elements. I love the storyline of this film. I loved this film. This film has got a lot of emotional moments. Very unique and original scares like showing the baby being covered by a cloth and her hand slowly comes out of the cloth. The mystery contributes to the scares. The main character is very pretty. This movie is mostly shot at night, making the scares much more effective. The locker 2- This is a direct sequel to the first film. People who have watched these two films would enjoy this sequel more than the original. For me, I liked the locker a lot more than the locker two. Unlike the locker one, where the scary scenes involves a baby being covered by a cloth with blood and hands slowly coming out of the cloth,the scary scenes in this film was not original, unlike the first one. Although this may be a little scarier, it does not gives as much entertainment value as the first one. I found this film to be highly derivative of JU-ON and One missed call. The twisting scene, the elevator scene, the use of the young girl with black hair and some of the other scenes were very similar to One missed call. Somehow, I did not find this movie to be as effective as the first one.However, the good thing about this film is that it is very fast paced and provides a wide variety of scares. There were many scenes that made me jump. Scores: The locker - 8/10 The locker 2 - 7.5/10
