I trust you have already read the plot synopsis, and you have probably already realised that it's not the most original horror movie plot ever. It certainly isn't, but that doesn't automatically mean that the movie has nothing to offer. Because it does.

The main scare in this movie isn't the ghosts, nor the music, jump scares, or buckets of blood being spilled. It's the central theme of the movie, and that read more is bullying. Without revealing too much, I think it's safe to say that the bullying depicted in this movie is horrendous. It's downright terrifying. Brutal physical and extreme psychological abuse and no one does anything. Absolutely nothing.

When the movie isn't trying hard to be scary, it chooses to be incredibly sweet, and so very, very heartbreaking. The girl ghost is exceptionally kind and sweet. A person that warm of heart does not deserve to become an icy cold ghost and life is unfair. On the more humorous side, the uncle is befriended by a simple minded, but good-natured, ghost.

But being a horror movie, it is cinematically scary, as well. This is mostly achieved through jump scares coupled with your average scary score. High pitched strings and suspenses, periodically cut off by chilling silence. It had me watching through my fingers at a few occasions, but that is enough to avoid the scary stuff. It's not gory enough to make you sick to your stomach, and it's no psychological thriller that'll make your skin crawl or haunt you at night for years to come. Simply put, it won't leave you scarred for life.

Overall, the movie was all right. If you dislike scary movies, I wouldn't recommend it to you. It's not that excellent that you should watch it if it means you'll do so through your fingers, but if this kind of movie is your thing, I would say go for it! If you are a horror fanatic and crave the most horrendous of horrors, this movie won't make you scared senseless, but it might present you with something else, something unpredicted of the heartwarming kind.

This is a nice movie.
I liked the story, it is nothing new but it was easy to follow. I liked the story more if it gave a bit more background information. I did like the development of some people and also I really like when a movie tells everything in the end and explains it.
The acting is really nice, they really convinced me, but I found some characters a bit read more weak but that doesn't kill the movie!
I am a big time scardy cat and some scenes did shock me. But for the people who watch horror movies all the time this isn't scary at all I think haha!

Watch this if you like a nice story with some horror scenes.
Skip if you are a big time scardy cat or if you are looking for extreme horror (because this isn't).

    No wonder it's not a scary movie but a touchy one. I read in interview when the DP said he didn't meant for the movie to be a horror but a emotional movie .. but since their a ghost and some stuff of course it will end up as a horror. anyway, it's enjoyable and has a good cast.

    I must be a rock...since I don't find this scary at all. It's more sad and had me in tears by the end of it. A very heartwarming movie with great actors. :)

    Good movie! I wouldn't watch it again during my own time but if it was on I would mind. It truly is a good movie but the story was a bit predictable.

    This is the first-time I am keeping a ghost/horror movie in my drive. I liked it and am keeping it because, unlike other horror films, this one has sense.

    The movie was put together really nice and it was enjoyable to watch. I found it more sad than horror though.

    This isn't one of the best horror movies out there but it isn't one of the worst either. Yes, for being a horror it isn't that scary, but the scary things here aren't really the ghosts.
    It's a movie that makes you reflect on the way you act and overthink what's really scary in the world.
    Even if I'm not a fan of Ha Neul or So Eun, I must admit that they weren't that bad. Among everyone I liked the uncle, he was hilarious, and Hye Rin, that girl really did a nice job.
