| Is "a waste of time" the right expression?
I guess so. There isn't even enough involuntary comedy it, but in which other film do you see someone being run over by a truck as soon as he steps on the road like in Scary Movie but it's not meant to be funny? There is not much story in it and nearly everything is told right at the beginning. To be frank, the whole story is told three times during the movie because they either think the audience can't remember or they didn't have any more ideas for other dialogues. Nothing new, nothing interesting, nothing mystic or scary You'll notice that the actors never move much while they talk. They don't use their hands, they don't walk around, they hardly touch each other. Normally they'll stand motionless about a meter from each other and talk stone-faced as if they read a their text. They don't even try to show emotions, so maybe they didn't get paid enough. That's not much of a loss, since there aren't any characters you can't describe with more then three or four words. But the most important point is that "Gonger" isn't scary at all. It tries to rip off scenes from Japanese horror classics, but it doesn't do that very well. When there is the hushed wailing of the dead child haunting the people, they blast full orchestral soundtrack in your ears. Furthermore if you have seen one or two classic horror movies you'll know exactly when the ghost will appear, what it will do and who will die. A funny thing are the wet footprints of th "Gonger", since they don't look like real ones, but like the design of footprints you'd use for advertisements or in cartoons. The movie won't try to surprise you. Sticking to the traditions to a genre's traditions doesn't have to be bad, but you at least need some kind of story, actors and a director who know what they are doing. All in all the film is just boring with some funny moments caused by bad acting, ridiculous screenplay, ripoffs and bad directing.
