Mi Ju is a part-time music professor with a tragic past. When she was younger, she was an up-and-coming cellist until she was in a car accident with her rival/best friend, Tae Yeon. After Tae Yeon died, Mi Ju gave up playing the cello and decided just to teach. One day, one of her students threatens her after receiving a bad grade, and so begin Mi Ju's problems. She is sent a mysterious cassette tape that contains a haunting cello duet that dredges up some painful memories of Tae Yeon and almost causes her to get into a car accident. She is distant from her loving family, which includes her two daughters, husband and sister-in-law. Her older daughter is mentally disabled and mute but falls in love with a cello she spies in a window. Mi Ju buys it for her and begins to teach her how to play it. Meanwhile, a new maid moves into the house. She is creepy as hell and is also mute. It seems as though her family was killed in a car crash, and she tried to commit suicide numerous times, once by swallowing acid. No more vocal cords there! Anyways, things start to get creepy slowly but surely. The family's golden lab, Sunny, begins barking all the time until one morning he is found dead. Mi Ju starts seeing things, and her daughter begins playing that haunting song on the cello. The sister-in-law goes crazy after her fiance breaks up with her, and "accidents" befall the household. Is Tae Yeon out for revenge, or is Mi Ju's guilt driving her crazy? Edit Translation

Well, let me just get started on this whole plot thing. You read the synopsis you know thinking you are going into a movie with at least a semi decent plot but oh boy are you wrong. The plot starts to fall off truthfully around 30-40 minutes since it seems to be going all over the place and by this point you can already predict the ending ( but I'm sure that is the point I mean the movie is a ' psychological ' horror and most people get wind of the ending real quick). You can get confused easily if you don't pay attention I know I did and had to re-watch some parts to truthfully understand it. It wasn't really scary, like even White: Melody of The Curse was scarier than this which is saying something since I found a lot of that movie just poorly done in the horror section. The acting was okay, I mean the maid probably had the best acting the entire movie and her dead stare was the best part of it all. The kids also did a decent job with the acting but for the mom/father they had some parts where it could definitely be improved. For Music, truthfully I don't remember much music but the cello music on the tape and hey, that was some good stuff. Don't rewatch it after watching it once though its honestly a huge waste of time that you'll never get back especially because the whole plot at the end will just be ruined for you.

Did I watch a horror or did I watch them go crazy?

Well, first off I'm not really a fan of horror but I do watch and appreciate it once in awhile so for those who might have loved this movie, this review is completely my own opinion.

I kind of get what the storyline is trying to say but I don't feel really engaged on the movie itself. It's kind of boring and it makes me feel like, 'just tell me what's gonna happen just to get over it.' It could've been more, maybe if there were just factors that kept me curious or engaged, the ending might have blown my mind instead of me being like, "Whut?? Again?? Really??" It's also unclear 'til the very end if this is a supernatural horror or just a mental illusion.

I have little to no expectations and I just really came here to see Jin JinHee and I'm not disappointed about that. I didn't know she was that cute when she was younger. She's like a walking and talking doll. At least that's a positive point I've seen in the movie.

Well as for recommendation, if you have lots of time in your hands, why not watch it like me. But if you're just trying to put watching in between your daily life, I highly suggest that you watch "Insane" instead because that literally blew my mind. It's not a complete horror at all but way better than this one.
