Quotes

Su-hyeon: Ji-hyun... At the amusement park... Do you remember the balloons dad bought us? As we fought over the prettier color, the balloon flew up to the sky. I cried, and so did you... So you told me... Later, when I'm grown up, you'd put wings on me. So I could go to the sky and find the balloon... Ji-hyun... Thank you for the wings.

What's next, The Toothbrush?

"A wig?"

A woman buys a wig for her younger sister, who is tentatively recovering from disease and lost her hair during the treatment. The younger sister begins to improve remarkably, but her behavior also becomes odd and perhaps even dangerous. 

The Wig is precisely as scary as you'd expect a movie about a haunted wig to be. It's like the filmmakers themselves knew how lame their premise was and that it was going to be nearly impossible to make this frightening, so they only bothered to make three or four half-hearted attempts at scares before calling it a day. I'm an avowed fan of Asian horror movies, but even I have to admit that The Wig is scraping the absolute bottom of the barrel. 

I'll admit that the movie does pick up speed in the final 35 minutes or so (there is one bloody and creepy scene in a hospital that is probably the only memorable part of the whole flick), but it's still hard to forget that you're watching a movie about a bundle of spooky hair. The Wig is not only kinda bad, but it is also mostly boring and very unnecessary.
