This movie was pretty much non-stop, on the edge of your seat thriller! I had the fortune to watch it with two amazing ladies, Akumi and Little-Dream, and all three of us seriously loved this movie. It was a dark, terrifying look at fame and the crazy people that are attracted to it.
From the getgo, this movie is dark, starting out with a murder, and quickly escalating into the kidnap/breaking in read more scene within the first 15 minutes, so it doesn't waste time on back story.
The characters in this movie are, for the most part, extremely intelligent. I usually hate watching thrillers, because you are always screaming at the dumb woman on the screen to stop being so stupid and getting everyone killed. And while the characters did make mistakes, and you did yell at the scream from time to time, I was really impressed with how well the characters handled the situation they were in, none moreso than Eun Soo.
Eun Soo has had surgeries and has some kind of affliction that has left her without a voice. The terror that this little child actress was able to emote without the use of a voice was just incredible. The terror on her face was enough to evoke terror in the viewers heart and feel so incredibly sad that she couldn't even scream or speak to alert anyone to the villain in their midst. It made the situation all the more terrifying.
The adult actors were equally impressive, Yoo Ji Tae in the role of the serial killer was absolutely amazing though. He played crazy perfectly! Soo Ae was really amazing as the mom, enough so that I am now looking through her filmography for more of her!
All in all, if you like thrillers then I seriously recommend this one! It wasn't so twisty that you couldn't follow along, but it was suspenseful enough to keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time! Definitely worth the hour and forty some odd minutes :)
