Unusual and well-crafted ghost story. Worth watching for fans of the genre.
12 August 2013 | by (Last house on the left) – See all my reviews

Two Moons starts out with Seok Ho (Kim Ji Seok), an unemployed graduate, waking up in a dark room. Soon after, he discovers schoolgirl, Jeong (Park Jin Joo), and horror/mystery writer, So Hee (Park Han Byul), with him. They find out that they're in a shed and nobody has a recollection of how they got there. Going outside, they see a house where they went in hoping to find answers. Instead, all they got were more questions and something more.

Looking at the first part of the film, I was not expecting much, especially in terms of originality. But like a couple of Korean horror movies have done before, they left me pleasantly surprised.

The movie is like one big puzzle piece where clues are given to you in tidbits throughout. This is not the usual cliché-ridden vengeful ghost story, and the pace, although a bit slow, still has enough bite to keep you interested until the end.

There are a few suspenseful moments that helped build up its creepiness factor, and the overall feel was well done, so that when the climax came, you're happy to still be alive. This film would not sit on the throne of any memorable horror film list, but it will probably manage to latch on to the tail end of it, nevertheless.

In summary, this is a slow-moving yet well-crafted ghost story with little bloodshed. It makes you think about what will happen next without leaving you too confused. Not recommended for those who likes some action with buckets of blood, but this is something not to be missed for fans of ghost movies.
