Kyung Min is an average female living by herself in a studio apartment. When she gets to her place after work, she finds her door lock cover left open. Slightly scared of this, she changes her password. However, just before she goes to sleep, she hears someone trying to unlock her door. Startled by this, Kyung Min calls the police. Yet, the cops only show annoyance and no sympathy towards the frightened Kyung Min. A few days later, she finds more hints of someone trying to enter her home, and a murder incident occurs. Realizing she’s not safe and that the police are not to be trusted, she starts investigating on her own. A door lock case left open, unknown fingerprints on the keypads, and a cigarette butt found in front of her door; someone’s here. (Source: EonTalk) ~~ Remake of the Spanish film "Sleep Tight" (Mientras duermes) [2011]. Edit Translation

Overall, "Door Lock" did its job in every context, from script to cinematography just like intended, and it scared me and amused me enough when I watched with my dad and a few other audiences during this Sunday morning. After my father and I left the screening room, we talked a little about the film and agreed that this often reflects the harsh reality of many South Korean women out there. If they see the movie, they will probably see it from their heroine, and they may be much more afraid of me because of it.

I don't want to say too much because I wanted to make this review a spoiler free one so I will keep it short.

First I think this movie is a remake (or at least they took some things from it) of a spanish movie Sleep Tight which is btw a great movie and if you are into psychological thrillers you should definitely watch it.
Okay so the plot was good and I loved Gong Hyo Jin she made me paranoid a few times, and every time she was scared she made me nervous too. She was not the strong female lead, but I personally don't mind and I know that a lot of people would probably do the same in her situation. But still If you don't feel safe in your house why would you stay there? I didn't understand that part because she had a good friend and she could have gone to her friends place for a while. On the other hand I liked that she called the police all the freaking time. Other actors did a good job as well and I liked her friend she was awesome.
This movie is a little scary, but not that much like you can get startled sometimes but I don't think this should have a horror tag it's more a mystery thriller to me. I didn't like the fact that the screenwriter did not explain why the killer did what he did and we learned almost nothing about him but maybe because the subs were bad I missed some things Idk.

All in all if you want to watch a decent movie you should watch this one and even though it was predictable to me (because I watched the spanish version) I still enjoyed it.
P.s. If you can't handle the bad subs you probably should wait a little bit longer to watch.
