Evil Wig, 27 November 2007
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In Seoul, Su-Hyeon (Min-seo Chae) is terminal with leukemia, and bold due the treatment of chemotherapy. Her sister Ji-Hyeon (Seon Yu) buys a long-haired wig, but she does not disclose the truth about Su-Hyeon's health condition to her beloved sister. While wearing the wig, Su-Hyeon recovers her health and hits Ji-Hyeon's former boyfriend Ki-Seok, changing her behavior and relationship with her sister. When Ji-Hyeon discovers that the wig is possessed by a fiend, she finds that it was manufactured using hair of a cadaver and a dark secret about Ki-Seok's sentimental life.

"Gabal" has a promising beginning, with the dramatic story of the two sisters, one of them having a terminal cancer. The intriguing mystery about the wig is also interesting. However, the secret behind the haunted wig is ridiculous and the conclusion is too tragic. I love Asian horror movies, but I found "Gabal" very unpleasant and not scary. The disappointing tragedy in the end is actually awful. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Possuída Pelo Mal" ("Possessed by Evil")
