Storyline

An internet broadcaster recruits a handful of people for their 'experience the horror' show at Gonjiam. They are to explore the haunted asylum and stream it live on the show. To attract more viewers, the show hosts play tricks on the guests, but things start to get out of hand when they are inside the place, where tortured souls could really be lurking in the shadows.

Solid (if derivative) new horror film
8 May 2018 | by randalrauserSee all my reviews

The writer of Ecclesiastes says there is nothing new under the sun. That's certainly true with "Gon-ji-am". It borrows liberally from other films in the genre -- most notably "Blair Witch Project," "Rec," "Unfriended" and "The Eye" (the 2002 Taiwanese film) but it borrows well. Somehow the sum of the parts is greater than the whole -- two days after seeing "Gon-ji-am" it is already fading from memory -- but it is still a pleasant way for a supernatural horror fan to while away a couple hours.
