Min Ji-Won is a student suffering from amnesia. She experienced a traumatic event a year ago and has lost all memories of her past. Something terrible happened but everyone around her avoids revealing the details. Min plans to leave her home and go to school far away to try and get her life back together. This results in an angry conflict with her mother who doesn't want to be left alone and assails Min with a guilt trip. Meanwhile her sometimes boyfriend, Park, does his best to get Min to carry on with life, but he's also unwilling to tell her about her past.
Min has become something of a pariah at school, avoided by her former friends. When those friends end up dying, one by one, apparently of drowning, Min begins experiencing visions and flashbacks. She visits one of her friends who has been hospitalized in a psych ward and she learns about Su-in, who was bullied and humiliated because her family was poor. A shaken Min realizes that she was the ring-leader of her school clique that tormented Su-in, often pretending to be her friend just so they could embarrass her later. A desperate Min tries to unravel the events that led to the tragedy and her loss of memory but Min may not like what she finally uncovers.Read more ›
The story is creepy. As with most Asians horror films of its time, this does involve a black-haired, pale-skinned female ghost; this didn't bother me at all since I'm a fan of this style, and I only watch these films occasionally. It moves at a very consistent pace, using the essential horror elements and occasionally having a mystery-vibe. There's plenty of ghostly imagery, and plenty of great jump-scares. The ending of the film was unexpected; the twist was actually a twist thanks to the film's subtle hints. The acting was great from the entire cast, the music was also good.
Overall, The Ghost is a great ghost story, with great scares and a twisted finale. It isn't the most original concept/design, though; so, if you're burned out on these films, I suggest waiting a few weeks or months to watch this. As of 3/12/13, this film is available on Netflix Streaming, I recommend a purchase for fans of Asian horror, a rental otherwise.
The Ghost has some blood and violence.
