Trivia

The film is based on a Japanese legend in which a samurai's wife was caught cheating on him, and he slit her mouth open. The same woman roams foggy streets, with a surgical mask on, and asks people she encounters, "Am I beautiful?". If they say, "Yes" she removes her mask and says, "Even like this?", and then slits their mouth. If they say "No" she cuts them in half. If they say "Average", she will allow them to escape.

HorrorVixen is right, Great concept, lousy presentation (writing & acting)
23 August 2010 | by (South Korea) – See all my reviews

When I moved to South Korea a few years back, I heard about the Red Mask urban legend and discovered this movie. Based on the urban legend I was really stoked to see this movie. Great concept but failed to deliver on everything. There were no scenes that made me jump out of my chair like "Paranormal Activity" or Blair Witch did.

What really upset me was the fact, the male school teacher helped in the hunt, but he was a girly man and the sliced mouth woman moved slow as molasses yet he got his butt whipped. An average man would have kicked her butt based on how slow she moved. There was also a scene where a boy sees his mother killed, yet he has no psychological trauma from the experience at all.

If you want to watch some good Japanese movies, watch the Ring or Battle Royale, The All Night series, watch anything else but this movie. You'll want 90 minutes of your life back after watching this movie
