The movie was okay, but not that frightening nor original. Relied too heavily on schlocky music to induce a sense of fear. Worth seeing, but hardly award-worthy.

I was honestly a bit disappointed with this... I think I went in with high expectations, and more of a Guillermo Del Toro touch. Definitely had the atmosphere, but I was hoping for more frights.

The movie was enjoyable, but did not contribute anything new to the genre. The plot, resolution, and underlying themes--corruption or perversion of childhood, redemption of mother's love--reminded me of recent American J-Horror The movie was enjoyable, but did not contribute anything new to the genre. The plot, resolution, and underlying themes--corruption or perversion of childhood, redemption of mother's love--reminded me of recent American J-Horror adaptations such as The Ring and Dark Water. Also, a lot of the "scares" were more unintentionally comedic than actually scary. Overall a "good" film, but don't leave to go to the restroom--you may miss one of the two critical explanatory scenes (without them, the story really doesn't make sense). Expand
