Scary...
6 April 2007 | by chubbyloveSee all my reviews

Scary scary… I love me some Asian horror… American horror films always just have jumpy scary parts that give you an adrenaline rush for about a split second. Asian horror really doesn't have jumpy… They pay more attention to scaring you in a way that lingers and builds up the more you think about it…

This one is a pretty simple story of a Mom/Musician with a lingering guilty conscience. For some reason, things start to go all wrong for her. She can't seem to get the job she wants. One of her students tells her that she's not a good instructor. Plus, she starts having some issues at home when her husband hires a house keeper.

The way the story was told was very creepy… And some of the events that happen are just down right disturbing. But, that's not to uncommon in Asian horror… If you like horror films DON'T miss this one! It's great.
