Storyline

In-su, a high school student, can see ghosts. Plagued by them everywhere he goes and harassed by classmates because of it, he returns to his hometown to live with his uncle and finally put the past to rest. No sooner does he arrive than he sees his first ghost there, a pretty girl; but, just like before, it's not just ghosts that affect his life. School bullies remain a problem, but soon along, the bullies start being attacked by a vengeful ghost wearing a bloody mask, and In-su starts to think that his new friend, the pretty ghost, may have something to do with it.

A less than mediocre swing and miss in the South Korean cinema...

Needless to say that I instantly jumped at the chance to watch "Mourning Grave" (aka "Sonyeogoedam") when I was given the chance, because I do like South Korean cinema quite a lot.

Right, well I must admit that this was a rather scrambled mess of a storyline, that didn't really have much coherency to it. And that sent a terrible blow to the movie; a blow that it never recovered from.

"Mourning Grave" is blessed with some good acting performances from an equally good cast. However, they were struggling an uphill and losing battle against a terrible storyline and equally terrible plot. And the fact that the storytelling in the movie was unfathomably slow really didn't help lift up the movie experience in any way.

The movie did have adequate effects, though.

This movie was not scary, not in the least bit. It was more of a supernatural drama than it was a horror movie. So the disappointment left a bitter tinge in my mouth once the movie ended.
