The Japanese and Koreans certainly have a pulse on what makes a rivieting, spine-tingling good horror film these days.( Why else would we Americans be remaking them by the barrel full?) This mind-twisting Korean tale of two siblings going to a remote summer house with their father and estranged stepmother for a weekend of unsettling revelations has all the makings of a shockingly good fright-fest and delivers almost the entire time. DEFINTLEY worth the rental and for those of you you do not like subtititles, there is very sparse dialogue. It is very elegantly shot and lovingly produced. If you can figure out the ending before it comes, you truly need to break into this genre of film and start writing because it is TERRIFICALLY original!
