Trivia

(at around 26 mins) When Tun and Jane examine ghost photos affixed to a wall, there is a enlarged photo of a ghost standing near bookshelves with tables in the foreground. This is a screenshot from the Williard Library "ghostcam". The Willard Library is located in Evansville, Indiana USA and in recent years, has become very popular for its website where visitors can view the webcam surveillance 24 hours a day for paranormal activity.

Goofs

(at around 28 mins) When Tun and Jane visit the Spirit Photography Guy and are talking with him, the camera faces them and shows a sliver of the guy on the right side of the screen (this alternates). In one of those shots, his mouth is moving, but nothing is spoken. See more »

probably the best Asian horror after the ring
9 March 2005 | by rapidperambulatorSee all my reviews

Not that i've seen every Asian horror movie out there of course. i've seen most of the biggies though - ring, ring 2, ju-on, dark water, cure, plus some others i can't remember the names of, and this is up there with the best.

Style-wise its not very original and borrows heavily from the Ring in its presentation, but whats wrong with that? Especially when its done as well as this. It's also scarier than the ring in terms of jump-out- of-the-seat moments, though it doesn't have any scenes quite on a par with the ring's freaky crawl out the telly scene, but then that's probably the best horror scene ever so I can forgive it for that! As well as the scares you've got good acting, good well structured plot and a really great ending - I didn't see it coming at all.

In conclusion, if you liked the ring you will love this. 9/10
