Did You Know?

Trivia:
In the scene where Tun and Jane examine ghost photos affixed to a wall, there is a enlarged photo of a ghost standing near bookshelves with tables in the foreground. This is a screenshot from the Williard Library "ghostcam". The Willard Library is located in Evansville, Indiana USA and in recent years, has become very popular for its website where visitors can view the webcam surveilance 24 hours a day for paranormal activity.

Goofs:
Audio/visual unsynchronized: During the scene where Tun and Jane visit the Spirit Photography Guy and are talking with him, the camera faces them and shows a sliver of the guy on the right side of the screen (this alternates). In one of those shots, his mouth is moving, but nothing is spoken.

Quotes:
Tun: [Tun is working in the dark room when someone walks beside him and stands there. He does not look up]
Tun: Jane? You're early.
Tun: [Telephone rings outside, Tun goes to answer it] Hello?
Jane: Tun. Its Jane. I'm going to be a little late today.



User Review

This one WILL scare you

Rating: 10/10

First of all, if you're a horror fan, see it. You will enjoy this film. Period.

Know this - I've seen a billion horror flicks from all around the world... This one gave me the creeps. First 20-30 minutes you still have time to relax from scare to scare, but from then on it's just plain scary shiyet.

This movie gets you in the right atmosphere right from the start, and it has almost every type of scene a horror fan can ask for (You'll know what I mean when you see it). I don't really care much about originality, but the story is original and interesting. The best thing about it, though, is the girl who portrays the ghost. I don't know where they found this freaky girl, but she's PERFECT for this role, and by far the scariest character I've seen in Asian horror films.

I hope the 2 fellows who made this film, make another horror flick, because, although they're young, it's obvious they know what they're doing. NICE ONE.
