Twisted tale of delight. I love the Oriental style of horror making us use our minds more than effects. A masterpiece if I've seen one..

I feel as though I am missing something with this film. It's loved by so many foreign horror fanatics, or even by people who don't normally watch foreign horror, yet I wasn't all that impressed by it. It felt slow-moving, and I always felt that movies when the main character is actually the one with problems is a cliche...however, the cinematography and the atmosphere in this was beautiful.

This is my favourite film, because every time I watch it i notice something new. It's unpredictable, with a great storyline that'll confuse, shock and scare you. The effects and characters are brilliant. An excellent film overall.

3/4 

Action: 2/3 + Comedy: 1/2 + Good vs Evil: 1/1 + Love/Sex: 1/1 + Special Effects: 0/1 + Plot: 1/1 +Music: 1/1 = 7/10 or 70%. A psychological thriller that never lets up in regards to the astonishing trauma past, regretful events manifest. In light of the recent onslaught of gore-centric horror entries, Two Sisters stands out as a welcome, well developed drama that builds tension on a masterful level. The acting is superior and the overall directorial quality provides a rare and unique gem for the horror genre.

This is film that throws in so many twists, you won't know what to expect next. It can be confusing at times, but overall, this gem from South Korea is an excellent horror/mystery that leaves you on the edge of your seat.

"A Tale Of Two Sisters" by Yojimbo

Two sisters return to their home, continuing a feud with their step mother and living in fear of a presence in the house that stalks them at night. Very much in the J horror tradition of The Ring and especially The Grudge, A Tale Of Two Sisters' influences are obvious, but its recipe of psychological horror blended with creepy, supernatural imagery disguises a plot that is a cut above the usual mainstream horror fare. Using skilled misdirection, the story continues to surprise as you are never quite sure if the "ghost" is real or just a delusion, or quite who is the predator and who is the prey. Because of this, the narrative momentum and twist in the tale are much stronger in this film than most modern horror s and the stylish visuals mean it is always a pleasure to look at. Hardly origi...
