Standard Korean mystery film fails to deliver
2 July 2018 | by pidaraiSee all my reviews

It's a case of The Villainess all over again in this dismal slice of SOuth Korean horror. A young girl is abandoned by a sinister group of black-clad operatives. Eventually she is found by an elderly couple who raise her as their own. It's hard to get interested in this film. there is something weird on the train as one of the group's members sits next to the girls and starts to really freak them out. But this is generic stuff, right up to the cynical open-ended ending which will lead their way to more fomulaic fare.
