Don't be fooled by the cover art - there is no gore or extreme violence in this movie. On the contrary, it provides everything one would expect from an excellent South Korean horror film: a great script, excellent cinematography, strong characters, dense atmosphere, and some tense moments of suspense.

This installment is the strongest of the Whispering Corridors series. The rule system regarding the communication between the ghosts and humans is interesting, and is utilized well when everything comes together near the end of the film. There is limited (yet successful) use of special effects and the night time atmosphere is very good, using dark red lighting consistently. Everything about this movie screams quality, from the interesting storyline to the excellent acting to the effective, stylish horror elements. The scene that plays during the closing credits is something really special. This is a beautiful film.

I personally consider Voice to be the second greatest South Korean horror film of all time (behind A Tale of Two Sisters). Just be sure that you watch this knowing that it's not another Hollywood crapfest with irritating, sex-crazed, drug-addicted teenagers and you should be fine.

This is one hell of a movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars The American DVD Cover is Horrible... Do Not Be Fooled September 24, 2008
Format:DVD
I watched a subtitled import copy of this movie back in 2006 and immediately fell in love with it. The original posters and DVD art for the Asian markets was much more subdued and appropriate for the film, which is dark, depressing and almost as much of a drama as it is a horror movie. Don't be fooled into expecting a slasher flick or a violent monster movie. Although it is a horror film (and the fourth part in a series of "haunted school" stories) the focus is mainly on the characters' interaction with each other, not the supernatural.

Highly recommended. Just know what you're getting before you buy.

Format:DVD
In a girls' school where music plays that only certain people can hear - along a quie corridor or after hours, when the building is deserted - the death of a student singer sets in motion one one of the eeriest, most dramatic, and most thoroughly absorbing films to come out of South Korea yet.

Able to be perceived only by her best friend, the girl's ghost clings to existance in this world while she and her friend try to solve the mystery of her death. Meanwhile, more strange occurences start to happen, and secrets from the school's past slowly come to light. Those who dislike ambiguous endings may have a harder time getting into Voice, as the movie masterfully and Very subtlty presents, almost simultaneously, alternate explanations for the truth of what's really going on. As with a number of other Asian horror movies, there's also an intangible sense that underneath the surface, something even stranger and more terrifying than what's up front is taking place, and that sense has never been stronger than it is here.

With great performances, deeply involving interpersonal relationships, and the high production values characteristic of most Korean movies over recent years, Voice is a brilliant (and dark) success that deserves a far, far wider audience than it's gotten on these shores. A must for fans of Asian horror or of movies like 'The Sixth Sense', 'The Invisible', or 'The Orphanage'.

Voice (Ik-hwan Choe, 2005)

Somehow I've lived the last five years in ignorance that the Ghost School trilogy had been turned into a longer series. (At the moment, five exist; A Blood Pledge, the fifth in the series, was released in 2009.) All of the movies in the series (the first three are Whispering Corridors, Memento Mori, and Wishing Stairs) are at least worth watching, and the original trilogy finds moments of greatness, especially in Memento Mori. Voice continues the series in the tradition it started; it's another standalone film set in a girls' school, focusing more on atmospheric horror and character development rather than stuff jumping out at you, and like the others it's liable to confuse the hell out of you until all the pieces click into place and the thing gets running. Stick with it. The rewards are generous; this replaces Memento Mori as my favorite of the series.

We begin with two friends, Young-eon (Thirst beauty Ok-bin Kim) and Sun-min (Ji-hye Seo in, to date, her only big-screen appearance), in a music practice room. Young-eon is currently doing the practicing. Her voice is otherworldly. (I'm pretty sure it's actually a recording of a nineteenth-century castrato; you don't get that kind of voice without doing some body altering.) Sun-min, who does the school's lunch broadcast, is recording her to play over the air. As they're leaving, Sun-min runs ahead, and we see Young-eon killed by a ghostly music score... or do we? The next morning, Young-eon is right there in school. Except that no one can see or hear her. Yep, okay, looks like she's a ghost.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad Cover Art, Good Movie February 13, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was surprised ... VOICE is actually a far more subtle, nuanced film than the bizarre cover art would have you believe. A fitting entry into the haunted school series that began with WHISPERING CORRIDORS, the film tells the story of Park Young-Eon, a girl who dies mysteriously. Her friend Kang Sun-min is able to hear the voice of her ghost, and together they set about trying to solve the mystery of her death.

It's a surprisingly emotional film with a nice, creepy twist. Not the greatest J-horror film to be sure, but certainly a strong film with some terrific scares, a somber tone, and an ending that packs more punch than I expected. Recommended to fans of the more subtle side of J-horror.
