Before being released home after cancer treatment, Soo-hyun is given a gift box from her sister Ji-hyun (who was made mute after a disturbing roadway accident). Inside the box is a long, black wig which Soo-hyun eventually begins to wear every waking moment. It quickly becomes apparent, however, that something sinister lies within the wig and its history.

Korean horror films tend to disappoint but The Wig proved to be a surprisingly good watch. The plot is interesting and moves at a brisk pace. Jump scares and creepy imagery abound keeping you invested and slightly on edge throughout the film. A nice twist near the end of the movie further sets this horror entry apart from the pack. Highly recommended for horror fans.

The story is interesting: the sister of a cancer victim buys her brother a silky black wig to cover up the damage done by her chemo treatments ... Leaving two questions in the air; Can she survive without the wig? Or, more importantly, will the wig let her go without a sinister confrontation in the final act? If you have grown tired of the Asian horror, this movie certainly will not win you back. It fits in with the usual cliches found in all the other films of the Orient genre, ranging from scary Korean girls with long hair to the blatant abuse of the "jump scare", which, in my opinion, is probably the smallest of the bass when is about horror movies. Any filmmaker can scare someone by having scary things jump into them, but it takes a qualified director to actually crawl them through the use of images, atmosphere and solid acting.
