I went into this movie expecting horror and got a story about close friends and sometime lovers at an all girl's school and what happens both after and before a young girl commits suicide. The story is fairly involving and I had no problem sticking around to the end but I can't recommend it as strongly as the other reviewers. It was okay. Frankly the story could have been told without the strangeness and it would have been more effective. The horror elements were pretty limp and were not central to the story.
A high school girl named Min-ah finds a very elaborate and colorful diary belonging to two of her classmates. She is fascinated by the contents, and the way it is put together. This is no ordinary diary. It doesn't just open one way and read left to right. There are nooks and crannies everywhere, and words going in every direction. At first, Min-ah is interested, faking sick so that she can learn more about the special bond these two girls share. Until the diary takes over her mind and seems to inspire hallucinations.
This movie is excellent all around, but my personal preferences dictate that the best thing about it is the fact that it portrays a part of school life that I will henceforth refer to as "that day." I'm not talking about anything so obvious as that day your lesbian lover "outed" you to your classmates by bringing you milk (that's so GAY!) and then kissing you on the mouth in the middle of school (not THAT gay--we've all done that). Nor am I talking about that day your roommate inexplicably committed suicide (and you learned that, sadly, that automatic 4.0 thing is just an urban myth) and started possessing everybody at school. I'm not talking about either of THOSE coming of age milestones, because, although they are also portrayed in Memento Mori, they are such obviously universal themes that they have been ingrained into collective consciousness in films too numerous to list.Read more ›
1. Whispering Corridors
2. Memento Mori
3. Wishing Stairs
5. A Blood Pledge
Memento Mori was my least favorite of the 5, with the other four films easily being 4-5 star films.
Memento Mori was confusing and I had a hard time keeping the actresses apart. I will probably watch it again in a few months & I'm sure that it'll be less confusing the second time around.
Teenagers annoyed me even when I was a teenager...with all their petty dramas & stupid decisions. And although all 5 films are about teens, Memento Mori came across as the most immature of all the films. Which is really ironic because some very adult themes are in the film.
If you plan to buy all 5 of the films, I think it's worth it to buy this one as well, but if you're just looking for a good movie to watch, I'd recommend any of the other 4 films over this one.

It's only subtitled. It's beautiful, creepy, creative, and macabre. Must watch. Oh, did I mention they are lesbian lovers? It's so cute.Published on March 31, 2013 by zillaidma
The story line is definitely more 3-dimensional and complex than what you may think. This movie blew the first (whispering corridors) out of the water. Read morePublished on February 10, 2011 by J.Mills
