The story Min Ji-won is suffering from amnesia and being haunted by weird visions.

Anyone who likes Asian Horror movies, Will love this movie, I for one did, yes this movie as another dead girl with long black hair, killing off people, it not gory but it still very creepy.

This movie had the perfect story and there really good creepy scene that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

I Give this 7/10
