something old something new
23 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This little movie came to me through a friend who now works at a video store and asked my opinion of it. She knows I like spooky suspense but don't like slasher or gore porn. She thought I might like it and I did. It's quite a decent little movie with a willingness to be slower paced and had some really nice spooky touches. There are things in the story that have been done countless times before and others that were fresh. The plot slowly gives way to a mixture of horror / supernatural and psychological thriller that sets it apart from so many in this genre. It seems filmmakers are all jumping on the Asian bandwagon when it comes to horror and this movie had none of that which was a relief. It's too bad the studios don't make more gradual creepy supernatural thrillers since there seems to be a big audience for these. There are lots of us that don't want want an edit every three seconds and the story served up with piled body parts.
