Disappointing ghost flick
27 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Cello instructor and would-be music professor Hong Mi-ju (Hyeon-a Seong) entrapped within unresolved past issues becomes haunted by an unnamed ghost, which has clear bad intentions and will stop at nothing to enact revenge for an unnamed wrong. Pretty standard Asian ghost theme? You betcha.

"Cello" is so deeply in tune with the Asian ghost film phenomenon that it starts eating its own toes within the first few scenes. However repetitive the story a proper execution would at least keep up interest in the unfolding story, even if surprises are few and far between. Hyeon-a Seong gives off a terrible performance painstakingly imitating emotions with the utmost failure being that of fear. Supporting cast further dilute the story with some laughable reactions, which make 1980s slasher movies look almost Oscar worthy. Scare factor is severely diluted not only down to performances, but also thanks to the unwaning deja vu attacks. Held together by a slow meandering plot which lacks both compassion or tension with frights signalized by overtly noisy and predictable music / sounds reaching the finale is an arduous task.

Once there the story does offer some respite to those, who traversed the journey with a nicely tied in twist conclusion, notwithstanding the irksome humdrum leading to the point.
