Reviews

South Korean chiller starring Ji-Tae Yu as Wu Young-Min, a former policeman who quit the force after accidentally causing the death of his partner while trying to save his life. Now working as a security guard at a deserted shopping mall which was closed after a series of murders took place there, Wu becomes increasingly drawn into the web of mystery and terror surrounding the killings, while also re-living the horrific memories that punctuate his own past.

I couldn't wait for this DVD to come out when I heard about it; the idea of not being safe even from your own reflection was going to make interesting horror movie (and even better death sequences). After buying the DVD, turning off the lights and watching it I found that I liked it but not for the reasons I thought I would.
First the story, it's about an ex-cop, Wu Young-Min, who was forced to leave the police force and manages to get a job as the head of security at a shopping mall. One night one of the malls employees is killed. As more bodies start to appear the police are called in and Wu is told to stay out of their way. However Wu decides to do some investigating himself which in turn leads to the usual plot twists and death scenes as Wu uncovers the Malls hidden secrets. Now when I bought this I thought that I was going to watch a horror movie, which is true for the first half an hour or so, but the rest of the movie is more of a police thriller. I found this to be perfectly fine though since you get to explore the subjects of Wu's past and why the police detective refuse's to let him help in the investigation.
The FX used in the movie were quite simple compared to some Hollywood movies but were very effective (especially in the final scene). The sets were what impressed me the most though; each set was either symmetrical or filled with mirrors which helped to set the mood for the movie.
As with recent Tartan releases they have presented this in special two disc collection. You get the usual trailers, TV spots, deleted scenes and 4 page booklet. You also get an interesting commentary and 6 behind the scene documentaries (which is really just a making of program split up). To top it off you also get the film in storyboards and an unimpressive music video.

Format: DVD
This korean film is visually overwhelming with the director using the idea of mirror images and reflections to the nth degree. Every shot of every scene uses this idea to promote what he is trying to show, that there is a dualality to life via mirrors ala'Lewis Caroll thru the looking glass world. I will say that it does run a bit long, but, it does not affect the quality of the film. this is simply a brilliant movie and another must see. Being a huge fan of japanese horror films i was amazed that the korean film arena is just as good and well worth watching. Not blackly comic as 'the quiet family' or as deeply disturbing as 'tale of two sisters' but entirely enjoyable in a different way. Another must see.

Inventive and original and stunningly shot, this chiller is less in your face than you might expect from a Tartan Extreme release and is as much a who done it as a what done it.

Ex-cop turned store detective investigates a series of murders in the soon to open shop. Investigations hinge on deaths in a mysterious fire months previously. Are the murders revenge for those deaths because the company is witholding compensation? Is it actually the ghosts of the dead haunting the store?

Throw in some dodgy share dealing, the ex-cop with a history and a quite unexpected and not a little bit chilling final twist and it all adds up to a supremely satisfying experience that withstands repeated viewing.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Od Smith on 21 Dec 2008
Format: DVD
As this film is another in a long list of Asian horrors to get fed through the Hollywood tree chipper, some people may well be looking for the original to see if it's any better than the remake (which isn't difficult, as the remake ignores 90% of the film out of hand). However, it isn't a genre classic by any means.

The problem with a lot of Korean horror is that, quite frankly, they're not that interesting, especially compared to some of the masterworks from Japan in the last decade or so. Indeed, they often come across as not very good copies of J Horror title, for example Phone is basically Ring, A Tale of Two Sisters is (essentially) Dark Water, and so on. And this film falls into that category.

It starts off interestingly with the opening mirror murder, which is used as the cover art, but at the same time you have to ask why somebody would buy their friend a pizza wheel for their birthday in order to set it up. Indeed, as well orchestrated as the mirror murders are, they require a lot of contrivance in order to happen in the first place.

It's a waste of an interesting conceit, that being a world on the other side of the mirror, and it does lead to some interesting plot developments in regards to one character's back story, yet it also leads to that other problem of Korean horror cinema: less an ending, more the film finishing.

If you're a completist, this may serve as a good addition to your Asian Horror Collection, but the film is pretty weak in its execution and wastes a conceit that could've been better expanded upon in another director's hands.

Format: DVD
I have watched this a couple of times, I do enjoy it, it is subtle and cfreepy in a 'Grudge' kind of way.
Its not my fave asian horror movie but it is certainly worth a watch for the chill factor.

PS if you like this, try R-Point...
