Editorial Reviews

After catching her husband cheating with another woman, Sun Jae takes her young daughter and moves into a dilapidated old apartment building to start a new life.

Unfortunately, these shoes are cursed and cause unspeakable repercussions for those foolish enough to try them on.

There could have been more horror but overall it was an alright watch.
Michael
To most jaded movie goers (especially those most interested in horror films) The Red Shoes is too little too late.
C Wahlman
The ending is a bit of stretch and falls apart when analyzed but it's a decent film that I don't regret watching.

To most jaded movie goers (especially those most interested in horror films) The Red Shoes is too little too late. Possessed shoes? Mysterious deaths? Twist endings? It's all been done before, and so many times in so many ways before. But I think this film has taken the ghost horror movie idea and just made a better film.

As is the beginning of all horror movies, a frighteningly first scene (watch it for yourself). Then we are introduced to Sun-jae, her mean husband, and their daughter Tae-su. Sun-jae is striving to be a good wife, mom, worker like most modern women, but her husband is less than appreciative. In fact, he thinks it is silly that she wants to wear red at her age (what's up with that? This is the hint so the audience knows this guy is a cruel loser). After she finds him in a compromising position, we next see Sun-jae and Tae-su as they move out and start a life on their own. All is plodding along, until one day Sun-jae finds a pair of red (fuchsia) shoes in a subway car. After she brings the shoes home her whole world changes, she gains confidence until everyone around seems to go insane.

This movie reminded me instantly of Dark Water, but The Red Shoes is so much better than Dark Water! If you like Asian horror films or American horror films give this a try. And if you like interesting movies with twists and crazy action, then you too should try this film. I am glad I saw it. It still haunts me...

"The Red Shoes," is not a bad film; and for those who are new to the Korean horror, suspense, or thriller genre you may like this film. For me however, the film is very unoriginal. I have seen this type of stylistic suspense film already in too many Korean films. Throw in beautiful cinematography, some classical music: maybe Vivaldi, Bach, Mozart and perhaps Beethoven, and weave a psychological twist in the film and there you have it! Well not quite. I believe the reviewer below, [KURT W.] gave a very good description [AND PROBLEM] of the Korean horror film today. This is not a bad film, however, it's not a very good film either. Yet, it will appeal to some viewers.

There was a time when I would usually purchase a Tartan DVD almost immediately, as I found many of them were pretty darn good. But with so many alike, this began to get a little old. I think the film is good, and many will probably like the film. However, I also believe that you can pretty much figure out the film almost from the beginning in many of these Korean horror and suspense films [Not that this is a bad thing]. If you see a ghost, an angry spirit or some other supernatural occurance, this will later be explained [sometimes ambiguously] at the end of the film. The film "Acacia" would be typical of this type of an example.

I think the appeal of these types of films are mainly due to the fact that so many American horror/suspense films are so bad [usually] that these films seem to resonate with many American viewers. And this is a pretty bad indictment on our film industry. The film has very good color and camera visuals which one will find appealing. Also, there are some very good creepy scenes in the film.

Since there is already a plot description here on Amazon I'll skip past the rehash and just give my views on the movie.

At one point Asia was the top spot for horror films in particular Japan. Non-horror movies coming out of Asia were also making a big impact in the States. Now South Korea has come up and is probably getting more attention than Japan.

But right now Asian horror is having some trouble. The ghost story is really at the end of the line now.

While there are other horror movies being produced in Asia and released here it really is their ghost stories that seem to dominate. The last few I have seen my only thought is so what?

It's sort of like slasher films, while Halloween wasn't the first of it's kind it was the first to make a huge profit and by 1980 it seems slashers dominated the horror world. And like the ghost movies at first it was fine. You could put your own twist on it.

But after so many movies later there wasn't anything you could do to be different. The only thing slashers had keeping them going is the violence and gore.

Don't get me wrong I don't think a horror film must have that to be good, but when there is nothing different about your movie and it's the same thing as past flicks at least we have something to look forward to.

The Red Shoes isn't a bad movie by any means it just came out a little too late in the ghost story sub-genre. The one major difference between The Red Shoes and other Asian ghost flicks is the gore.

While not a bloodbath there is a steady flow of the red stuff, but it's not overdone.

Now in the Asian ghost movie we seem to have possessed things.

The Red Shoes (Yong-gyun Kim, 2005)

If you're going to adapt a fairy tale these days, the obvious choice is Andersen's The Red Shoes, what with the current click-lit shoe obsession. Kim does so here. Unfortunately, I have to review a cut version of the film; the directors' cut has never (as of this writing) been released outside of Korea.

Sun-jae (Three... Extremes: II's Hye-su Kim) is a young career woman on the verge of opening her own optical center. Her young daughter, Tae-su (Yeon-ah Park, in her screen debut), wants to become a ballet dancer, and is attending dancing school. One evening, Sun-jae finds a pair of red shoes in the subway and takes them home-- but soon comes to realize that death follows in the shoes' wake.

Okay, yeah, so "adapt" is a loose term there. (The actual fairy tale, Andersen-style, is much more closely followed during a flashback sequence near the end of the movie.) Still, it's not a bad little film; Kim has given us some decent, if not fully-fleshed, characters. The main problem with it is that it's pretty obvious that Kim had seen Hideo Nakata's Dark Water not long before he began shooting here; there's a great deal of similarity in setting and atmosphere. If you can overlook that, however, it's not a bad way to kill an hour and a half. ** ½
