THE GHOST

DVD Review by David Blackwell

DETAILS: 94 minutes, two featurettes, TV spots, theatrical trailer, previews

VIDEO: 1.85:1 (Anamorphic Widescreen)

AUDIO: Korean 5.1, 2.0 Dolby Surround, 5.1 DTS

Subtitles: English, Spanish (feature only)

STUDIO: Tartan Asia Extreme/ Showbox/ Mediaples, Inc./ IM Pictures Corp/ Popcorn Film

RELEASE DATE: 4-24-2007

Min Ji-won is a sophomore sociology major who lost her memory on a high school trip years ago. She suffers from heart problems too. Her only friend is a fellow sociology major who claims not to have known her before she lost her memory. Then she starts to remember fragments of her life as her former friends mysteriously die from drowning. She starts having nightmares involving a woman and starts seeing the same woman dripping water. She investigates to find the truth of what happened to her on that trip and the ghost that is involved.

TEH GHOST is another moody horror film from South Korea. It works better as a mystery than a scray film. It is a little creepy with one hell of a twist ending. The characters are developed and you actually care for them despite their flaws.

SPECIAL FEATURES: Extras are brief. They amount to two brief promotional featurettes (six minutes of cast interviews and two minutes of behind-the-scenes), TV spots, the original theatrical trailer, and the usual Tartan Asia extreme previews. I do wish Tartan would include an option for the user to be able to skip the forced Tartan Asia extreme preview before the main menu.

FINAL ANALYSIS: THE GHOST is a creepy mystery that doesn't scare too well, but it is a good character drama of discovering one's past.
