The maid is about a young girl who is staying with a family to help out with certain chores and such. The Lunar seventh month is here, and that means that the ghosts that get the people who are not doing the proper traditions.
This is a pretty good movie, unlike a lot of oriental horror films, it didn't have a lot of the weird girl with the long black hair coloring her face. It sort a more American feel to it. Lots of surprises, lots of ghosts, and a lot of running away from them. However, the movie works,and has some nice twists. The acting is pretty good, and the setting and location was nicely done. Pretty good movie. I rate it 6/10. (my rating)rated PG-13 for intense violence/terror and disturbing images, and some sexual content
