Some of my friends do not particularly care for this film, therefore, I would suggest you rent the film first. But I do think it is well worth the purchase. And although there are similar traits in this film as with other Asian horror films, this does not detract from the film one bit: due to the fact that this film is very well acted and directed. There is not too much scare factor in this film, [although it does have its share] as much as there is suspense. The film begins with a bullied classmate at an all-girls school named Lee Yu-jin (Se-eun Lee). Being fed up with the constant harassment, she decides to put a curse on the other girls who are picking on her. Moreover, two of her friends participate in this activity. They make a special numberboard; and after chanting the name 'Bunshinsaba' a few times, the curse is in effect.
The girls who were picking on them begin to die. A sort of self-suicide, as each student sets themselves on fire on different days. As these students begin to die one by one, the film veers towards another area at the school: The administration.Read more ›
The story is very creepy and effective, using jump-scares, tension, and disturbing imagery wisely. It does have a rough start, but eventually smoothens out and becomes easier to follow. It's consistent, as in it's a balanced story that doesn't solely rely on one type of scare and it moves at an acceptable pace. The ending of the film was also creepy. It really is a scary film, although it is similar to other ghost-revenge stories from the region. The acting was great, and so was the music. The visual effects/make-up was also creepy and effective.
Overall, Bunshinsaba is a creepy supernatural horror film, with great jump-scares and eerily disturbing imagery. I recommend a purchase for fans of horror, and a rental otherwise.
Bunshinsaba has strong violence and blood.
Aside from the packaging and settings, I throroughly enjoyed the movie. The story was cohesive, easy to follow and very entertaining. It was not scary in my opinion. I think the original Evil Dead is scarier than this movie. It was more of a supernatural or suspense movie rather than a horror film. I would purchase this movie again because I enjoyed it. I would just recommend purchasing this movie from but from another vendor.
