I was dying to see this film when i saw the trailer with cute Boyoung Park in it. When i finally go to see this film, i wasn't so pleased. It follows a simple plot of some characters "incidently" watching the supposedly "cursed video clip" from a now defunct website. Obviously, the not so kind spirit is vengeful and goes after the people who watch the video clips. I had the impression that whoever completed the script was trying to rush a lot of things into the run time of the film. There are a few instances where the makers of the film try to startle the viewers, but fail miserably. Not once, have i been startled. Actors, but mainly actresses act well (with the exception of an actor who played the role of Se-Hee (Boyoung Park)'s boyfriend). In the end, the message about haters on the internet is so to the point. I could have given this film even 4/10 but actresses and the message of the film saved this rating to 6/10. This is an okay film for a kill time.
True, the film is not original in its concept, but anything that's
original is a rarity these days.
I think any idea, no matter how clichéd, if done correctly, is worth watching; and I do believe this movie is one such. Nothing that would curl your toes under your blankets, but there were some creepy moments that made the movie enjoyable.
The story is not complicated nor deep, and the ghost per se did not make too much of an appearance, which I found a pity. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this little film and would recommend it to people who wouldn't like anything too horror "heavy".
Minimum amount of blood, no gore. Acting was the usual, lots of shrilly screams and blank stares, but acceptable.

Virtual internet sites where teens gets bullied or commit suicide even
as a pack. Has been a ongoing issue for a long time. But despite the
message this movie is bland as it gets. Everything about it seems so
darn amateurish and dull. Even the pop up scares doesn't have an effect
and seems utterly cheap most of the way through. The plot just doesn't
seem focused and even when it's finished you just don't get the reasons
behind it. I did but I didn't at the same time if that makes sense.
This movie has a interesting start but as it progresses it becomes a
total bore-fest. I was so bored I was doing other stuff while watching
this movie, which isn't really fair as a reviewer. But I got the basic
premise with girls making those creeped out faces and screams and so
on. Even as a simple date movie just pass on this one. This borrows so
many ideas from other horror movies but does it way weaker.
