Effective family drama with a 'pinch' of ghosts!
While I was expecting to watch a cheesy, jump scare driven asian ghost story, (which it was whenever the ghost appeared) I was pleasantly surprised to see an intense family drama. I mean this movie could have worked very well without all the spookiness. A story about a father's desperate attempts to do the best for is family.
I loved the pace of this film. The family's slow descent in to chaos, insanity and paranoia was well captured. The acting is top notch here especially from the actors playing father and the daughter. The tension between the relationship is what elevates this film. I also loved the direction and cinematography. I don't get why the director felt this has to be a ghost story.
The final minutes of the film will hit you hard and it was not because of any of those ghosts.
