4.0 out of 5 stars SLOWER BUT MORE CEREBRAL THAN THE GRUDGE June 15, 2007
Format:DVD
The Ghost or "Ryeong" is a new Korean horror film, part of the Tartan Asia Extreme line. The film is shackled with the tag line "The Grudge meets Dark Water" and that does a real disservice to the film for a number or reasons. The Ghost doesn't have nearly the scare factor of The Grudge but it has vastly superior characterization and a more complex plot. While the Grudge was a straight horror film, The Ghost is more of a mystery with horror elements.

Min Ji-Won is a student suffering from amnesia. She experienced a traumatic event a year ago and has lost all memories of her past. Something terrible happened but everyone around her avoids revealing the details. Min plans to leave her home and go to school far away to try and get her life back together. This results in an angry conflict with her mother who doesn't want to be left alone and assails Min with a guilt trip. Meanwhile her sometimes boyfriend, Park, does his best to get Min to carry on with life, but he's also unwilling to tell her about her past.

Min has become something of a pariah at school, avoided by her former friends. When those friends end up dying, one by one, apparently of drowning, Min begins experiencing visions and flashbacks. She visits one of her friends who has been hospitalized in a psych ward and she learns about Su-in, who was bullied and humiliated because her family was poor. A shaken Min realizes that she was the ring-leader of her school clique that tormented Su-in, often pretending to be her friend just so they could embarrass her later. A desperate Min tries to unravel the events that led to the tragedy and her loss of memory but Min may not like what she finally uncovers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric chiller! April 25, 2007
Format:DVD
This Korean horror flick is not very different from some of the other Korean horror movies that have flooded the market recently, but it is still worth a watch. Yes, there is the familiar long-haired spectre that haunts the victims in this movie, but the plot is compelling. It revolves around a college student Ji Won who is suffering from amnesia after a terrible accident. She sees troubling visions, and then some of the girls she knew from before the accident start to mysteriously die...i won;t give too much away, but suffice to say that just as you are figuring things out, there is a twist towards the end of the movie involving the concept of reincarnation & possession. Worth a watch for any Asian horror fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Creepy Horror Film With A Twisted Ending... March 22, 2013
Format:DVD
Min Ji-won is an amnesiac. Ji-won's old friends are mysteriously dying, and, as her memory returns, Ji-won begins to experience haunting visions of her own. The Ghost is a creepy horror film, with a twisted ending.

The story is creepy. As with most Asians horror films of its time, this does involve a black-haired, pale-skinned female ghost; this didn't bother me at all since I'm a fan of this style, and I only watch these films occasionally. It moves at a very consistent pace, using the essential horror elements and occasionally having a mystery-vibe. There's plenty of ghostly imagery, and plenty of great jump-scares. The ending of the film was unexpected; the twist was actually a twist thanks to the film's subtle hints. The acting was great from the entire cast, the music was also good.

Overall, The Ghost is a great ghost story, with great scares and a twisted finale. It isn't the most original concept/design, though; so, if you're burned out on these films, I suggest waiting a few weeks or months to watch this. As of 3/12/13, this film is available on Netflix Streaming, I recommend a purchase for fans of Asian horror, a rental otherwise.

The Ghost has some blood and violence.

5.0 out of 5 stars must see May 15, 2012
By kensh
Format:DVD
I do plan to get this movie and add it to my collection, I just show it on youtube and it is really good. I will not spoil the ending but there is a great twist that will leave you guessing and having to watch it again. The movie starts off slow so you do have to be patient but once you see the end it will all make sense. I dont think this is a really scary movie but there were some parts that had me looking over my shoulder and jumping plus while I was watching the movie it started to rain and got really dark outside so that helped. I think this movie is a worth watching I really enjoyed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie; Definitely worth watching August 20, 2009
By Larissa
Format:DVD
I bought this movie some time ago but only now got around to watching it. I enjoyed it a lot; I give it 4 stars though because I don't think it was as good as other Korean horror/mystery movies (such as a Tale of Two Sisters). I did not see "the Grudge meets Dark Water" in it at all, personally; and I don't think it's fair to compare it to Ring just because of some images of a drowned ghost girl with long hair. The title is rather misleading cause it isn't really a ghost movie. This movie deals a lot with different themes; jealousy leading to tragedy; relationships between friends; extreme guilt; identity crisis (but not in a boring way); etc, like other Korean movies of this type; It's more comparable to those than to Japanese horrors or the American remakes. If you're looking for something with only scare after scare, then I guess it isn't for you, although there are definitly scares & creepy moments. It's a movie you will be trying to piece together all throughout (so is the main character)...but it won't leave you frustrated in the end. You will enjoy the end! I thought the actresses made you really feel the emotions of the characters too. It is worth watching even if you think you're bored of Asian horror and mystery movies.
