Format: DVD
School can be hell. So it's a perfect spot for horror movies that focus on the symbolic supernatural problems of teenagers.

In the case of the superb "Whispering Corridors", the setting is a Korean girls' school. While the finale is a bit drippy (literally), director Park Ki-Yong never resorts to gore or cheap scares -- just a lot of creepy visuals, shocking attacks, and a double twist ending that you won't see coming.

As the movie opens, tyrannical Mrs. Park (Jin-hie Park) is making a call to the youngest (and pleasantest) teacher, Eun-Young (Mi-yeon Lee) -- about Eun-Young's best friend Jin-Ju, who died nine years ago. Then she's yanked up by an invisible force, and is found hanged by students the next morning. Eun-Young is left to ponder Park's final words: "She never left."

Soon gruesome events become more commonplace -- student Ji-oh (Gyu-ri Kim) notices a strange bloodstain over her desk, photos are altered, and the student-molesting Mad Dog is savagely murdered. 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...

"Whispering Corridors" isn't really a horror movie as much as a ghost movie -- it prefers to creep you out, rather than freak you out. In fact, most of the horror comes from how the students are treated by the callous teachers, to the point where it's hard to get TOO upset when Jin-Ju kills the people who tormented her in life.

That seems to have been Park Ki-Yong's intention, but she doesn't neglect the ghost angle. There are plenty of creepy moments here -- creaky floors, quiet corridors, a man being murdered by a curtain, or a painting of a bloody dead woman.

I would see how a person would note this film highly while others just see this as a bore. The first time I watched this I feel asleep on it due the time I watch it (my fault it was pass 1:00am). The second round I gave it my all divine attention and thought it was good. The 'Corridors' films are said to examine the trials and tribulations of school life with a supernatural bent. This entry begins with a teacher of a private all-girls school who reveals some mysterious secret that obviously has her nerves on edge. This discovery ultimately leads to her equally weird death: a noose around the neck, her body left hanging from a catwalk in the school courtyard for students to find. A noticeable suicide to some but we full well know it wasn't. From here the horrors of death swiftly turn about-face to the dread of teenage cliques and tyrannical teachers as we meet the artistically-inclined Lim Ji-oh and the restrained, social outcast Youn Jae-yi - two students who develop an unexpected bond that strengthens as more school faculty fall prey to a malevolent ghost. Said specter is lashing out for reasons of revenge and loneliness; left to piece these motivations together is a new teacher absorbed in her own painful memories that may yield some clues as to the origin of the school's supernatural presence.

As far I can see director Park Ki-Hyung film moves at an unhurried pace that if you're not prepared for may knock you out faster than a bottle of Jack chased with some sleeping pills. That's my nice way of saying Corridors is more drama than straight-laced horror. It peers into the classroom door window of teenage relationships and doesn't flinch from some bitter realities. The girls here get catty, sometimes outright vicious, to their school chums.

Format: DVD
WHISPERING CORRIDORS is the kind of movie that you will want to watch at least three times - partly because the story is so layered that it takes a while to let it sink in. As a western viewer, I found it a little challenging to tell one girl from the other - not that all Asians look alike, but the adolescent girls all in uniform start to blend together. Maybe this was part of the director's intention, because the film deals with the crushing societal pressure to conform. I watched this late at night and dozed off at least twice; this was not because the movie was boring. It is not the kind of film that jolts you. It's a ghost story that works on a slow burn, which is part of the reason I like it so much. The ending especially impressed me - the past is always living in the present, the old ghosts never go away and there are always plenty of new ones to join them. A conductor once introduced a classical piece by saying, "This is music for virtuoso listeners". This film requires virtuoso watchers. Don't be afraid. Dive in. But realize that you're diving into the deep end of the pool.

Mysterious disappearances and deaths plague a girls-school in WHISPERING CORRIDORS, the second part of the "GHOST SCHOOL TRILOGY". Has a long-dead girl returned to exact her overdue vengeance? Can the living figure things out before it's too late, or is the school doomed? WC raises the creep-factor a bit higher than the first movie. The untimely demises are wonderfully, wickedly orchestrated! An excellent chiller!...

The world's worst high school is haunted by a petty-pouty-vengeful student who keeps attending classes until one teacher learns the truth, dying with the knowledge: "Jin-ju is definitely dead.....but she's still attending school." All this begs the question, why keep attending this lousy school. She died there; it couldn't have been all that fun. The teacher's are vicious and think nothing of slapping the students around. In one horrific scene, a teacher slaps a student causing her to fall to the floor where he continues to beat her severely while screaming, "Die die!" When he isn't fondling girls, he's thrashing them. What kind of school is this!?

At least this semi-horror film is very stylishly filmed, with a couple of startling images where terror should reside, but doesn't. This is as tame as it gets, as far as ghost stories go. Where clues should be there's an incessant sound of dripping throughout, don't know why. There's a blood stain on the ceiling in one classroom that keeps getting bigger, don't know why. There's a set of bells that seem to have some importance but I don't know why. A lot of elements are repeated with no explanation. If they are meant to shiver us uncontrollably, they don't. This movie feels more like a testimony to the cinematographer than anything scary. I will say it held my interest and at times was quite absorbing. But. It isn't a horror movie which is what I wanted/expected to see.

There's nothing worse than a ghost with issues.
