Sibling freakishness.

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. :)

The film risks a typical basic structure of the drama (the initial time to engage with the characters, and then walk the last of the story, as with the audience caring about what they are seeing). But the result was a flop, since all the first time in connection with the characters is undermined by horror without rhythm and just sprinkled in are mostly long shots, trying to build an atmosphere of ... read more

All this movie score can be obtained due to its unique visual bill, typical of oriental horror productions, full of imagery and unsettling atmospheres. But the script is leaking everywhere, repeating situations and making the main character suggestion, without resolution, end and, worse, no intelligibility. The inevitable violence of South Korean films and brand director, Kim Jee-woon. Confused mo... read more

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)

"26.3 Kim Jee-won/Etelä-Korea Kun viime aikoina on katsonut lähinnä kaanonklassikoita sun muuta huippukamaa, tuntuu tällainen tavanomaisempi elokuva ehkä huonommalta kuin onkaan. Kovin kehutussa modernissa kauhuklassikossa arvotaan klassista pulmaa: ovatko tapahtuvat kauheudet totta vai pelkkää päähenkilön mielisairautta. Hyvin 2000-luvun alun näköistä säikyttelyä ja monituisia twistejä seuraa. En ole koskaan pystynyt tunnetasolla sitoutumaan tämän sapluunan tarinoihin. Kun mik"

" Watched October 24th Rating: Streamed on Shudder This is one of the only movies I've seen this season that has really scared me- not just jump scares but keeping a sense of fear and dread through the whole movie. A good haunting is so delicious, whether it's a book or movie or campfire story. I really like a good ghost. A Tale of Two Sisters delivers on a beautiful setting, an eerie atmosphere that is maintained through the whole film. The scary scenes are drawn out to a wonderful length, nev"

"Writer-director Kim Jee-woon burst onto the K-horror field with this fractured retelling of a traditional Korean folktale. Siblings Su-mi (Im Soo-jung) and Su-yeon (Moon Geun-young) chafe under the tyrannous yoke of their aloof stepmother (Yum Jung-ah). Or do they? Because A Tale of Two Sisters is nothing if not unclear: Kim calculatingly blurs the boundaries between past and present, dream and reality, bombarding viewers with a kaleidoscopic blur of spectral apparitions and sudden violence that"
