Not since the Ringu trilogy had I gotten freaked out in a film. I heard a lot of positive stuff on this Hong Kong horror film, so I decided to check it out and I'm glad I did, because I liked it so much that I added it to my list of favorite movies. It starts off with a blind girl getting eye surgery to regain her eyesight. The operation is a success and things are normal until she begins seeing ghosts (hate when that happens). She makes failed attempts to ignore them, but soon realizes that she just can't, so she goes in search for the origins of her eyes in hopes of explaining why these things are happening.
I really enjoyed this movie. It had a good story and lots of bone-chilling scares. I even admit to getting freaked out in a couple scenes of the film; pretty wicked stuff. The directing and acting were very good and there was even some dramatic moments thrown into the story to make you feel more for the characters. I thought that was a nice touch. The ghosts are all unique in their own ways, and as usual, some are scarier than others. I thought it was also very cool how the woman was even able to see "Death" and how each person had their own.
About an hour into the film the story-line takes a turn and the scares slow down, because the girl goes in search of the origins of her eyes. That was a good idea, because we can't just keep having her see ghosts for nothing.
Now one of my favorite movies. Good scares; freaky ghosts.
