Yoon-hee, a novelist, desperately seeks for a new story and that's when she hears from Seo-yeon, her friend in Vietnam, a very tempting story about a legend of Muoi's portrait. A long time grudge makes Yoon-hee hesitate to go to Vietnam to meet Seo-yeon. However, fascinated by sources of the portrait Seo-yeon incessantly sends her, Yoon-hee heads for Vietnam to unveil a century-long legend of the portrait. Yoon-hee is stunned by Seo-yeon's dazzling look never seen before but is readily welcomed by her friend. As Yoon-hee unveils the mystery of Muoi, Vietnam, seemingly an exotic place, turns into a setting of a living nightmare, and the secret of Muoi in buried as if never to be revealed.

Muoi is an interesting horror film and one of the few Vietnamese produced movies. The film is well acted and the pacing is fine but the problem lies in the story. An important plot element is completely obvious from the first 20 minutes of the film, eliminating a lot of suspense that would have made the film more enjoyable. Muoi is definitely worth watching in you're in the mood for a decent Asian ghost story.

This film isn't terrible, but it certainly isn't good either.

The show has a fine premise a horror story, but the execution isn't well thought out at all. A major plot point is completely obvious before half of the movie is even over (of course the main character is completely oblivious). You spend so much of the movie hoping for a plot twist or two so things will defy your expectations, but it never comes. It's hard to keep any air of suspense when a viewer figures out how the movie will end shortly after it starts. Then when the end of the movie does come, it feels entirely rushed.

The actors did a fine job in their roles, and the music always suited the mood well enough. Despite this, there is no way that I would find myself rewatching this movie. I barely made it through the first time watching it.
