When an aspiring actress is hired by the police to help them film reenactments for various murders, she becomes haunted by the ghost of her most recent assignment and must stop the ghost from running havoc through her friends and her personal life.
This was a rather solid and enjoyable Asian ghost story. It has what is generally found in most of these types of films in a rather impressive visual style for the scares, and this has some good ones. Some of the better scenes include the ghostly assistance in the bathroom during her rehearsal, a creepy attack in a bathroom as well as the big highlight of her confronting the main one in a hallway making a cry for help, only to back away and be confronted with a horde of them clawing at her before the other ghost attacks her amidst the scrum. The fact that it gives off a spectacular twist in the second half makes it all the better, due to it being so perfectly executed in regards to how the storyline is presented that there's just a lot to like about what happens, even if it is somewhat cliché and doesn't really speak of any originality. Even still, that main sequence with the movie-within-a-movie revelation comes off nicely, yet that only happens to bring about it's flaws as it begins a terrible time of making sure we understand what reality we're in as it flips between three different story lines and trying to explain them all grinds the film to a halt and doesn't really feature a lot of good stuff afterward as opposed to the front-half, yet this is still entertaining enough as it is.
Rated UR/R: Graphic Language and Graphic Violence.
