Cast & Credits
I tend to not like supernatural stories that much, as I find that people can be far scarier than ghosts. This story managed to balance a line with the aspect of a haunted place and not feeling so focused on this abstract supernatural being. It was a haunting. Not a martian or a big bad wolf. The movie also played with timing, which I appreciated. In typical horror flicks, you have a 1-2 reaction with something popping up. There were points in this where the image held and so if you closed your eyes for a second and opened them expecting it to be done, you'd be wrong. Even at points when there was looking away and back again, it didn't follow a 1-2-bang punch. You kept thinking this would be the time, and so when it finally was, it was like being grabbed by the throat.
The music was just right to get an eerie feel and add that essence of "this sounds sweet and playful while also sounding ominous and like I may lose my head." The acting was solid, and while the story is not original, it was done in a way that didn't feel like I was watching the exact same movie with different actors. What really shows that the images held up for themselves is that the subtitles were less than perfect, and yet the aspect of terror was still projected.
Horror movies are incredibly subjective, but this one definitely had me covering my eyes for a minute and is something I would rewatch with a friend.
it has all aliments of horror scary movie ,,,,,,i almost get jump scares at every moments of scenes . using it webcam for showing the effects of watching it though their camera is ausum ...camera work was good lighting was good for horror movie otherwise shown almost dark ....their was not creepy pathethic type ghost at all which i like most ....ghost only showed up in last scenes with supernatural elements ....editing with some creepy noises bangs sounds make it more worth watching for me .....other than showing up some ghost with heavy make up .....
sound was perfect only played when needed ....ohhhh yes sound was not there for creating extra effect to create horror environment ....that was so good .
charcters are almost new casted so they pretty much shown good work with charcters given,
overall worth watching ~~~~~especially at night.
