A movie worth seeing if you like a plot in a horror film. Not the remake with Jessica Alba, that one sucked.

Yes, another remake of a Japanese horror movie, like the Ring, and the Grudge, however, don't expect to be scared at this one. It's so hard to find movies that are genuinely scary- the Shining, the Ring, The Sixth Sense, even the Grudge- now, those were scary. But then you get the lame ones like this one, and One Missed Call. So basically, Jessica Alba plays a blind girl who gets a cornea transplant, and then begins seeing "creepy" things that the girl before her saw. I took my nine year old sister to see this movie, who has barely even seen a scary movie before, and even she was not that scared. Scary movies are supposed to scare you- and this just doesn't cut it.

The Sixth Sense gets the J- horror treatment in this inventive Korean chiller. The premise is an interesting one and there are some very creative and effective visuals from the Pang brothers, although they are on occasion guilty of over egging it a little. The biggest problem with it is its schizophrenic nature; the first half has some genuinely chilling moments, particularly when she first regains her sight but half way through it changes tack and decides to be a supernatural thriller, and this part does not work half as well. Still, some of the imagery is brilliantly done and there are a couple of excellent scenes but it does not …
