After a spell in a psychiatric hospital, two girls returned to their home where, unfortunately, things slow to get worse, and therefore many may be the cause: a bad psychological situation of girls, the uterus with the hard face, enigmatic father, while not slow to realize that they are the only instances in the house ...

This film boomed during the peak of Asian horror dramas in the world. And yes, A Tale of Two Sisters is something. Freakingly good, it was. This proved that Koreans aren't just for romantic comedies. They could also compete with Japan's psychotic films. :)

Description: Something strange is happening when Su-mi and her younger sister Su-yeon come home to their father's large, but dark and somewhat foreboding house after a stay in the hospital. Their dad is taciturn and burdened and their step-mother, Eun-joo greets them with forced enthusiasm and more than a little sense of irritation. But that's nothing compared to what happens when bedtime rolls around. Su-mi unpacks her bags in her old room only to find her desk and closet full of someone else’s stuff. Su-yeong hears step foots outside her bedroom door and then sees a creepy, ghost-white hand opening the door – but there's no one there. ... (more)

Misery Fest: Movies that leave you depressed (25 movies items)

"A fairly well known movie among Korean horror film watchers. This movie, like its title suggests, is about two sisters. However, it's not really a horror film. At least, it's not one of those "monster gonna get you" horror films with a paper thin plot. This movie actually communicates themes on multiple levels, and deals with fatherhood, motherhood, infidelity, insanity, neglect, and wrongful death. Although not soul damaging, this movie definitely leaves a palpable trace of depression in its wa"
