~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

Roommates (2006)

AKA: My Bloody Roommates / D-Day

Director: Eun-kyung Kim


Premise:
Four girls are staying at a boarding school studying for college exam. They try to adjust to each other under difficult pressure. One of them starts having visions from a past tragedy at the institute.

My Take:
The movie takes a good theme (pressure of entering college) and makes it more than just a typical Asian ghost story. It's definitely more of a slow burn where the adults in charge are at times far more frightening than the supernatural elements occuriung. Solid performances all around by the four lead actresses adds to the believability. A very watchable movie.

Rating: In the middle
