Plot

Soo-Mi (Lim Soo-Jung) and Su-Yeon (Moon Geun-Young) return home after an extended illness and hospital stay. Things have not been the same since their mother passed away. Their return is welcomed by their stepmother Eun-Joo (Yum Jung-Ah). It’s evident that Soo-Mi, the older and stronger of the two, isn’t afraid to speak her mind when it comes to their family troubles. Su-Yeon is more timid and wary of their stepmother and looks to Soo-Mi for help. Continually picked on and harassed by their stepmother, the two have no choice but to endure the relationship for their father’s sake. Soo-Mi promises Su-Yeon that she will never let their stepmother beat them again. Unexplainable things start to occur at the house. Something has changed, no one knows what it is, but the sisters can feel it.

Amelia This movie sucked not scary at all

Imelda Excellent and intelegent movie, love it very much. Awesome! Kim Jee-woon is a great korean movie director

Watcher Superb example of why Asian (especially South Korean) horror films are far superior to any horror films that come out of Hollywood (and why Hollywood remakes of Asian horror fall so short).

tammy The movie was great. I really don't watch horror films, but this one was great. I think the two main actress' pictures are in the wrong place.

Neri Wonderful .. this MOVIE is done by a wonderful people .. this is great so great ...

mitzmin wonderful movie with a touch melancholy through the plot. i had never seen a korean horror movie before but needless to say this one is spectacular. the actress su-jeong lim is VERY good and I'm looking forward to watching more movies starring her.

RazorbladeKiss Excellent! One of my favorite korean movies of all time. Su-jeong Lim is BRILLIANT in this!
