Trivia

There is a scene in the movie in which each of the girls are wearing numbers, so that the "customer" can select who he wants more easily. Eden is wearing the number 7. In South Korean culture, the number 7 is considered a lucky number. See more »

Goofs

The girl that Eden was forced to execute did speak Russian, not Ukrainian as the subtitles state. See more »

Haunting
6 October 2012 | by nowegoSee all my reviews

Every now and then I see a movie that just hits the spot. This is one of those movies.

I watch a lot of movies on DVD because they often never make it to the theater here in Australia. One of the good things about doing that is you can stop and start it anytime you like. This is one of those movies that I did not stop watching from start to finish.

While it is a very simple movie with very little in the way of action or graphic violence it is still a very disturbing and haunting movie that will stay with you for a long time after you have finished watching it.

Jamie Chung as Eden was perfect and she held my attention throughout. Matt O'Leary as the cool and hardened Vaughan was also very believable. The rest of the cast also did an excellent job and made the movie what it was.

Don't watch this movie if you have a weak stomach. Even though there isn't much over the top violence, just the thought of what is going on could turn your stomach.

The fact that it is based on a true story makes it all the more heart wrenching.

8 out of 10 for me.
