One of the better Asian horror films, 1 May 2007
Author: fulcigore from United States

I am not really a fan of Asian horror cinema, most likely because my first impressions of the genre came from boring remakes like The Ring. I picked up Cello on sale at Wal-Mart (!) of all places, because the cover caught my eye.

Cello was a good horror movie with some quality chills and good direction. The story starts with a music teacher at a school who obviously plays a cello. She has difficulty with a certain student, who is a pretty important figure story wise. The plot really gets going when we are shown a pretty intense car wreck. From there many crazy things happen to build the story and make a good horror flick. Of course there are several staples of Asian horror such as creepy little girls etc.

The movie has some real gritty tension between two competitive characters and some good twists to keep the viewers interested. The acting is pretty top notch and the film looks good in terms of picture quality and the sound mix is good.

If you enjoy Asian horror movies and good creepy stories, check out this Korean import.
