The film is based on a Japanese legend in which a samurai's wife was caught cheating on him, and he slit her mouth open. The same woman roams foggy streets, with a surgical mask on, and asks people she encounters, "Am I beautiful?". If they say, "Yes" she removes her mask and says, "Even like this?", and then slits their mouth. If they say "No" she cuts them in half. If they say "Average", she will allow them to escape.

If this would have been released before The Ring and the plethora of Asian movies that went on the same formula, I would have said it was average. A story that is slightly original and a factor of fear and hopelessness that could have made this a watchable, maybe even good horror movie, with low production values, probably because of budget limitations.
However, the film being released in 2007, I can only say that the bad acting and the low production values made this film below average. The story was simply suffocated by the fakeness of it all. The few good things in the movie I can now assume that were cloned off of successful Japanese horror films and dismiss them altogether.
Bottom line: ridiculous as this sounds, this story would (in my mind) have created a great movie. However this version was just a fail.
