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.

ridiculous creepy
10 July 2007 | by chrichtonsworldSee all my reviews

The introduction of "The Wig" sets the tone which is dark and mysterious! Apart from a few creepy scenes this movie never gets scary! The idea of this evil wig has quite a potential in fantastic sense (It is interesting to see how the wig was created and why the wig does what it does) and on a psychological level (The effects of wearing a wig can be quite substantial especially on people who have lost their hair because of an illness! It could have some impact on their personality)! But sadly nothing is done with the far more interesting psychological aspects! At least not in the way I hoped for! Except for the brilliant plot twist this movie misses the mark completely! The fact that "The Wig" takes itself too seriously doesn't help much! When the ambiance is this serious you expect to be scared! The problem is that this never happens! It is very difficult to get scared when the wig moves around like it is some sort of pet! It looks so ridiculous that it is painful to watch! It is difficult to say why this movie doesn't work! But it doesn't help that the actors are average,that there are too many plot holes and that the director didn't know what he was doing!
