Editorial Reviews

A young woman is struggling against cancer and her sister decides that she should take her home so that she really can enjoy what little time she has left rather than to spend it in a hospital. She buys a wig for her so that she can go out without having to feel ashamed of herself, what she doesn't know is that the wig is cursed.

Customer Reviews

A lot of these characters look alike.

So when, near the beginning of "The Wig," I was faced with a moving mass of hair wriggling along the floor--I nearly flipped the movie off.
K. Harris
If you're expecting a "jump out at you" type of horror film, then don't even bother try watching.

This Korean movie tries to answer the pressing question: can someone make a horror movie out of a wig? The answer depends on what you mean by "horror." I was horrified at the end to realize I had purchased this dud on line from Amazon.
The main characters are two sisters, one dying from leukemia (who has lost her hair to chemotherapy) and the other suffering from a failed marriage. The suffering sibling gives her sister a wig. When the dying woman puts it on, she immediately loses the 10:00 shadows under the eyes, her posture improves, and she gets surges of energy. Unfortunately, during one of these energy surges she tries to seduce her soon-to-be-ex-brother-in-law, to the horror (again that word) of her suffering sister.
Meanwhile strange things are happening. The wig, for instance, keeps falling off its hanger onto the floor. This may be because 1) it is too heavy for the hanger, or 2) it actually prefers the floor. The answer is 2), for reasons explained at the end of the movie.
One key sequence encapsulates some of the problems with this film. A friend of the two girls borrows the wig, and the next day she and her husband turn up dead. The wig magically returns to its owner. I had to watch this sequence again, because I did not know who was who. In fact, this is a problem during the key revelation flashback, when the origin of the wig and its relationship to the main characters is revealed. I was wondering, "Who?" "What?" "Why?" And who is doing what to whom? A lot of these characters look alike.
The really "scary" scene at the climax shows the hair climbing up a flight of stairs. This is reminiscent of the Terminator, when the mutilated machine crawls across the floor and up some steps to terminate Sarah Connors.

Does the world really need a film about a demonic hairpiece? That's a question that the Korean shocker "The Wig" would like to answer in the affirmative. There are a lot of great examples of Asian horror in the DVD marketplace. Too much of it, in my opinion, centers around shaggy haired ghost girls who show up at inopportune moments. Sorry, it's just a bit overdone! So when, near the beginning of "The Wig," I was faced with a moving mass of hair wriggling along the floor--I nearly flipped the movie off. Ghost girls are bad enough really--but hair without even a ghost girl seemed somewhat pathetic. However, I stuck with it and "The Wig," while not a particularly above-average film, does have a compelling back story that kept my interest.

"The Wig" centers around two sisters--one of which has suffered the loss of her hair due to leukemia. When presented with a wig, with mysterious origins (naturally), she is initially reluctant. But when she tries it on, she starts to feel stronger and healthier. In many ways, she starts to become reliant on the hair and that dependence starts to put her under the thrall of the wig's originator. "The Wig" becomes a story of possession and I liked some of the elements (there is even a "Picture of Dorian Gray" vibe as the girl's condition degenerates when not wearing the wig). Her interactions with her sister and her sister's boyfriend lend emotional significance to the picture--they are both subject to her dementia and responsible for helping to save her (even at the cost of returning her to a diseased state).

In the final showdown, the revelations are more psychological than horror based--and I also found that somewhat interesting.

It's a very good movie, and one I highly recommend to all, if you like Asian horror, especially K-horror. It certainly has some pretty creepy moments, let me tell you - worth a watch. It isn't as silly as its premise might at first seem.
