When Ga-in is scanning the wall of the old man's home with the newspaper clippings and pictures, she reads a headline that says: "Argument with wife, father kills all four children." The bug-eyed image to the right of this is Goya's painting "Cronus Devouring One Of His Sons"; Greco-Roman mythology states that the titan Cronos/Saturn was told one of his sons would overthrow him as he overthrew his own father, so to prevent this, he devoured them all - reflecting the movie's theme of envy-provoked murders.

Based on the cover of the DVD and the fact that it is a part of the '8 movies to die for' series, then "Voices" (aka "Du saram-yida") seemed promising and it was with a certain amount of anticipation that I sat down to watch it.
And now that it is finished, I must admit that I have an empty feeling and a sense of having been cheated out of something potentially great.
So why did "Voices" fail to deliver? Well, because it was a predictable storyline that held no surprises to throw off the audience. And director Ki-Hwan Oh failed to impress where it mattered.
The acting performances in "Voices" were good, despite of the limitations imposed by the director and the lack of a proper script.
And the absence of scares and spooky moments just made the movie even more mundane - to put it mildly.
This movie scores a mere four out of ten stars from me solely on the production value and acting performances.
