It's not the best horror movie but it's not the worst either.

From the minute one I was glued to the chair. The film fulfills its purpose which is to keep you glued to the screen. Is it a scary movie? Of course not. It has a few scares that will make you jump and a few blood scenes (which are very well done). The movie has an interesting plot but it gets a little confusing, and of course it's one of those movies that if you watch it a second time you'll realize you didn't see it the first time, things that will help you understand the plot a little more.
I really liked Seo Je Yi's performance and the cinematography helped a lot to get you more into the film, using very appropriate colors for each scene.
In short, if you like horror movies and want to see something because you get bored, I recommend it to spend some time.

Confusing motivations…

I did not really understand any of the characters - the ghost included.
It does have a semi interesting start, that sets the tone for the rest of the movie - desperation and cheap jump scares. Sometimes this is all you need in a horror movie. Why was the female lead so invested in that uni movie was stupid though.

I get that she needed a horror story for her own movie, but with all the effort she put into the “investigation”, I’m sure she would be able to write something herself. Not to mention, was she both screenwriter and the director?

Then there is the ghost lady- why did she do all the shenanigans? They did not really explain if it was curse, vengeance… Sure, I can explain it myself with my little theories, but the movie did not, and that’s my point.

What I enjoyed - build up tension. Honestly believe cutting out all the jump scares would actually make the movie scarier. They ruined the atmosphere with how comedic they were… The pure investigation moments had me invested, but then a typical black hair lady jumped on the screen and I could not stop myself from laughing.

Performances were great. Loved how Seo Yae Ji’s character was so unaware how abnormal her behavior was, calling others crazy, when she herself acted in the most irrational way.

Overall, it was a decent watch. Would be better as an investigation horror game.
