All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~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.

Muoi: Legend of a Portrait (2007)

Starring: Ye-ryeon Cha, An Jo
Director: Tae-kyeong Kim


Premise:
A writer visits her friend in Vietnam to try and come up with an idea for her next novel. She becomes engrossed with an old legend about a vengeful spirit and soon begins to think the spirit is after her.

My Take:
An atomospheric and moody movie with good practical effects. The story is rather average and familiar if one has seen a lot of Asian horror, but at least it is executed by the cast and director with style making the flick better than it probably should be.

Rating: In the middle
