Part of the backbone for the film includes the traditional Vietnamese dress, the Ao Dai. However, the version of the dress seen in the film is a much more recent (and the well known) creation (starting in 40's at the earliest). This contradicts the fact the legend of "Muoi" is a hundred years old. The Vietnamese co-producers should have forced the Korean director to change such a blatant mistake. See more »
I had to review this because there are only two other reviews and both didn't really like it.
I really enjoyed muoi, The story was something a bit different and really interesting, the setting was beautiful. It had the usual twists and turns or Asian horror and great moments of suspense. For the first time in years i actually jumped out of my skin at one point, and not in the cliché American horror way, this film is really smart, and well made. I was almost in tears at a few points because the storyline has some really sad parts; but any horror that triggers emotion, except for just fear, always makes it a better film in my opinion.
I think it is definitely worth watching if you get the chance to, its probably the best horror i've seen in a while.
