When sisters Su-mi (Lim Soo-jeong) and Su-yeon (Mun Geun-yeong) return home from a sanitarium having supposedly recovered their health, their stepmother Eun-joo (Yum Jung-ah) welcomes them back. However, elder sister Su-mi intentionally avoids her and younger sibling Su-yeon shows a smack of fear for her. Soon, strange things begin to happen in the house. Footsteps are heard and Eun-joo's birds are mysteriously poisoned. Assuming Su-yeon is behind the inauspicious incidents, the stepmother locks her in the closet, and when Su-mi learns about the cruel punishment, conflict between the stepmother and two sisters becomes more bitter than ever... Based on the classic Korean folk tale 'Janghwa, Hongryeon', Kim Ji-woon's accomplished chiller is a uniquely lush addition to the best of Asian cinema.

40 out of 100  Great
dudley from Dublin, 12 Apr 2007
Really great, very scary, and fairly damned confusing. You really need to ride out the unsettling atmosphere to get to grips with whats actually going on.

40 out of 100  Excellent film
Philip from Dublin, 01 Jun 2007
technically this is superb. Its easy to lose the story or at least get confused by it. Far superior than any of the drivel coming out of hollywood. Worth a look

50 out of 100  True Horror
Jeff from Kildare, 26 Mar 2009
This movie is the best horror film I've seen. I've seen a LOT. The atmosphere is so dark and uneasy. It literally has your skin crawling. The intricacies of the plot take time to unwind and the movie isn't meant to make sense for the first half, but it all comes together in the end with a few engaging twists. Not really recommended for the kids who like jumps and cheap shocks [tho there are a few good ones!] but this movie is horror on a much more terrifying atmospheric level.

45 out of 100  Wonderful
Brenda from Dublin, 03 Jul 2007
This has the usual confusion that comes with watching something of the Asian horror genre, but well worth it. This should be a must for anyone who enjoys a good scary story but can't bear the Hollywood slasher style.

5 out of 100  Why did this get a good review?
Eleanor from Kildare, 24 Jan 2011
I dont understand it. Was I watching a different film the the other reviewers? My one and only reason to rent this movie was the great reviews but I was so disappointed. This movie was slow, not scary and of course having to read the sub titles. Do not waste your 2 hours on this rubbish.

40 out of 100  Very stylish chills
Philip from Dublin, 14 Aug 2011
This isn't a conventional horror in many ways - it is weird and mysterious and very stylishly made. It can be a little hard to follow at times (or at least I struggled occasionally). But its still head and shoulders above most Hollywood equivalents.

Damien from Dublin, 10 Apr 2010
Brillant film, really enjoyed it.. excellent plot and screenplay, quite scary, vivid colours, delightfully confusing (though everything makes sense in the end). Would definitly recommend it.
