4.0 out of 5 stars School is hell August 17, 2007
High school can be an utter nightmare -- awful teachers, cruel classmates, and vengeful ghosts.

At least, those are the problems in the "Ghost School Trilogy," a Korean horror trilogy about ghostly happenings in all-girls' schools. Thankfully it doesn't have the cheap thrills and laughs of your usual high-school horror movie -- instead, it's full of excellent acting, creepy atmosphere, and some pointed notes on the school system.

"Whispering Corridors" opens with the tyrannical Mrs. Park (Jin-hie Park) being found, hanging from a noose. But just before her death, she made a phone call to the youngest (and pleasantest) teacher, Eun-Young (Mi-yeon Lee) -- about Jin-Ju, a girl who died nine years ago. Apparently she's still there -- and she was Eun-Young's best friend, much to Mrs. Park's displeasure.

It seems that Jin-Ju is somehow taking her revenge on the teachers who made her life a misery, including the student-molesting Mad Dog. Eun-Young starts sifting through clues -- and the abandoned art shed where Jin-Ju died -- to figure out where the ghost will strike next. But Jin-Ju is far closer than anyone has suspected...

The next movie, "Memento Mori," starts with a more shocking opener -- a schoolgirl, Hyo-Shin (Yeh-jin Park), falls from a rooftop and dies. Lots of speculation is stirred up about why she killed herself, including pregnancies, affairs, and a suspiciously close friendship with the athletic Shi-eun (Young-jin Lee). But then Min-ah (Min-sun Kim) finds a diary revealing the actual story of why Hyo-shin killed herself.

It turns out that Shi-eun and Hyo-Shin started out as simple pals, until their innocent friendship evolved into a fond love affair.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 GIRLS 3!... November 28, 2010
Although WISHING STAIRS is my favorite of the three, this collection is a must for all Asian ghost / horror fanatics! Loaded w/ iconic images and strange plot twists, these films help to set the tone of Korean terror cinema. I had nearly given up on "modern horror" until Asia began cranking out one masterpiece after another! This trilogy (as well as the RINGU quadrilogy) is indispensable...

2.0 out of 5 stars Teen Drama mixed with horror = fun, but mixed results October 30, 2011
By Siege

I'll admit it: most Asian horror films aren't so much scary as they are startling. Things that jump out at you aren't nearly as scary as those which build the dread and actually pay off with something truly terrifying. While I'll admit I still liked the Whispering Corridors series (including the two not boxed with this set), I'm sad to say that the entire series is known more for its focus on high school drama a little more than its actual horror. For this particular trilogy, Wishing Stairs (Part 3) still remains the best in terms of acting and setting, Whispering Corridors (Part 1) is the most original (mainly because it came first), and Memento Mori (Part 2) is the worst film not only in the trilogy but the entire series. The reasons come from how much teenage girl drama you want in your horror. All three are made up of roughly 3/4ths drama and teen angst with a final 1/4th dedicated to the big finale and creepy, vengence-minded ghost girl whose idea of vengeance is trying to scare the crap out of those who tormented her. Fans of The Grudge or The Ring won't find anything here that screams originality and, of all the films, only Wishing Stairs has aged particularly well. My advice: go find the Wishing Stairs as a solo DVD and see if you like it. If it comes off as pointless and silly, find another movie to begin your Korean horror odyssey (like Tale of Two Sisters or Witchboard: Banshisaba).
