Before I watched Cello, I thought I was scraping the bottom of the K-horror barrel...a movie about a haunted musical instrument sounded kind of lame. I was wrong; it was surprisingly good. Hong Mi-Ju is an emotionally fragile music teacher whose past comes back to haunt her--or is it all in her head? The story unfolds like a Twilight Zone episode.

If you get impatient with some of the Asian horror conventions (an insistence on cheesy effects when CGI would be better, unresolved major plot elements) then this might be more your speed. The body count is as high, and as bloodily graphic, as a Hollywood horror flick, and while there are weaknesses in the story--I'm still not sure what the housekeeper was doing there--the ending isn't a baffling existential statement. It's not as nuanced as a movie like A Tale of Two Sisters, but it doesn't require cliff notes to understand, either.

Once again, Korea has given their viewers a beautiful film in terms of cinematography. In fact, I find most Korean films these days visually stunning. However, this has never been a problem. What many of these horror films lack are real scares. Sure, ambiguity is nice once in awhile, and the revenge factor works now and then. But how about something totally different? Now, in all fairness, I do believe that Korean horror and suspense films are still a notch above what we in America churn out on a daily basis. But, these films are becoming so formulaic, that I find it hard to really like many of the films coming out of the Korean horror industry these days. That is not to say that some viewers will not like this film.

For me the film itself lacks the suspense and horror that I really look forward too in this genre. Having written this, I will write that "Cello" is better than many films that have been released in recent years from Korea--yet that is not saying much, as so many are so similar. Yes, they are much better than most of the horror films here in the States, but one keeps hoping that they will make a breakout with some really captivating and scary films that will capture the world with the same unique quality that their dramas, and suspense films have been able to do. Moreover, the talent in both the acting, and the directing is definitely there. Yet, by continuing to churn out the same formulaic horror films at a rapid rate, they are going to suffer the same fate that American horror films now find themselves in: Stale and turgid.

"Cello" is not that bad of a film. If anything it is watchable. I would just like something a little bit more than "well it was worth a watch." Anyway, the films narrative is more like a drama, with very little to non-existent horror.

This movie is good!

Okay..Okay.. so its the same old revenge story by freaky black haired chick. I know.

But lets take a look at what this movie offers.

First off, no holds barred, original and graphic kills.

I mean come on..when was the last time a whole family got killed off.

Beautiful set pieces and air of unrelenting menace surround this flick.

This ghost is out for revenge..not just the come through the TV and poop scare ya to death kind. I'm talking about the whole enchalada. The last time I've seen a ghost this pissed off it was..hell I can't remember the last time I saw a ghost that pissed off.

A nice twist of events..and no I'm not talking about the ending.

I mean the part where we really see who was to blame for all of the mayhem.

So genre fans..not just Japanese Horror Genre Fans either..rejoice. Here is a ghost story to wrap your bed sheet around.

Okay, none of my reviews would be complete without a little negativity.

At times, the movie did feel as if it were a little been there..done that.Especially with the ghost being so Ringuish like. The final scene was not as explorative or explained as it should have been. I mean, give us a break..we just sat through 2 or more hours of watching this womens family get killed off in hellish ways and now it ends on a made for TV movie instant replay.

Do not let these qualms stop you from watching this movie.It is

a non stop spooky ride and one you will be glad that you got off sane and sound when its over.

Just a hint..If your daughter all of a sudden grows real attached to a Cello..Ship that sucker to Bangkok. The Cello, I mean not your daughter.

Cello is a unique story for this genre. To me, it felt more like a thriller (something like What Lies Beneath (2000)instead of a horror movie like Ringu. The acting in Cello is great. The story is interesting and a little more personal than most horror movies. It does seem like the build up is a little long and drawn out before you get to the ending, but the ending was satisfying. There are some holes and some disjointed moments in the film, and I wondered if that was because the translation was off? I have always loved the Cello as an instrument and the music in this film is quite beautiful.

Overall I enjoyed watching it and was pleased that I rented it.
