Plot Summary:
"Wu Young-min, a former policeman who inadvertently brought about the death of his partner during a faceoff with a criminal, has quit the police force and now heads up security at Dreampia Department Store as an employee of the security company SecuZone. Having been caught up in the situation at the department store, Wu comes across his former rival and co-worker Ha Hyun-su, who now heads the investigation into the recent murders. The presence of Ha and the situation as a whole causes Wu to relive the horrendous memories which he has since tried to forget. Meanwhile, Choi Sang-ki is head of SecuZone, which is hurrying to solve the recent string of murders. A mysterious woman Lee Ji-hyun is also found lingering about the crime scenes. Without wishing it, Wu is drawn farther and farther into the deeping mystery surrounding the murders."

This effectively spooky Korean thriller sees an ex-cop (Ji-tae Yu) given a job as head of security at a soon to be re-opened shopping mall, following a devestating fire.

As the mall nears completion, employees begin turning up dead, and all of them died near mirrors or other reflective surfaces. This sets the scene for a surprisingly refreshing Asian horror movie.

This film was the first I had seen in a while that had more going on than ghost girls with long black hair and leaky faucets. The mall setting is again used as a chilling location, as it has in countless other horror movies, but the deaths and the atmosphere are what really sets this apart from it's peers.

The cast are all very good and there are a number of surprises to encounter throughout the film's running time, but the beautiful photography and eerie lighting made this the creepiest Asian horror movie I've seen in a while.

OVERALL SUMMARY
As Asian horror movies continue to dominate the market, make sure you check this one out as it is less derivative than some of the other more popular movies currently being released.
