    Like the horror-flick hacks who infest Hollywood like termites, the Pangs don't build suspense, they assault the senses with twitchy photography and Danny's editing.

Afterwards, the film transforms into a romance, drama, and mystery. It works much more as a tragic thriller because it is very heart-rending, engrossing, and suspenseful.

    Mun is a girl of twenty blind since the age of two years, which, thanks to a corneal transplant from a donor unknown, regains his sight. AfterMun is a girl of twenty blind since the age of two years, which, thanks to a corneal transplant from a donor unknown, regains his sight. After a while, however, Mun also begins to see visions of mysterious and very disturbing. In fact, now she is able to see the souls of the dead that in the beginning, since he could not yet see well, she mistook for real people. She not only sees dead people, but also creatures dressed in black and the pure white face that accompany the souls when they die. This will be the beginning of a nightmare for her. The movie the Pang brothers is formed by a cast of great actors. The plot is not very original, but the film works thanks to an excellent director who manages to combine the tension and fear with some really dramatic and moving. Full Review »

Even though the ghosts seem relatively benevolent, the music suggests otherwise. In an elevator, an undead man is just standing there, but the score seems to indicate he wants to do Mun harm. Maybe he just wants her to press a button. There's also a set-piece that seems to have been lifted from "The Mothman Prophecies". Full Review »
