A work of art. Very creative,very creepy.
Definitely a favorite.

Well...how can i put this? mhh...same of the same, weird curses, revenge...meh!7/10
Wendy (9/30/2008 @ 12:23 am)
I had been wanting to see this for a while now. It was very nice -- the ending, where the main character is walking down that decrepit old entry in the house, is extremely well done. I\'d watch it again just for that scene alone.
Yiu@Sentiments_Xanga blog (10/5/2008 @ 1:03 pm)
The film Muoi tells the story of a Korean writer who travel to Vietnam to explore the century old legend of a haunted portrait for her up and coming book. The movie center on the apex of curses and the vengeful ghost theme. Much of the dialogues in the film tries to grip the audience into the haunted portrait legend, while attempting to built suspense, it falls flat into soporific and inane rambles. The lack of a compelling plot, true suspense, or dread made the film a saturation of ghost cliché that collapse under its own weight in tedium.
Nenn (10/5/2008 @ 1:22 pm)
This movie was rather good :3
LFrog1386 (10/9/2008 @ 11:05 pm)
Nothing new on the old theme of vengeful ghosts here but still worth seeing for its production values, beautifully shot images of the Vietnamese countryside, ruins and French-inspired homes as well as the creep factor. It may not scare you to death but it had its moments. All in all, a film worth watching at least once.
Dani (10/11/2008 @ 12:43 pm)
it was ok...took to long to get to the good part..thanx anyways...
VincentV (10/21/2008 @ 3:52 am)
Hrmm... Good production values, acting, etc. Story really needed some work. It\'s OK though. One thing keeps bugging me about ghost movies... Ok these vengeful ghosts have been wronged so they go around killing folks. How do the folks they kill get even, do they in turn haunt the ghost??? Where does it end??? Stop the insanity!!!
Xtazy (11/17/2008 @ 9:32 am)
Interesting movie...better than most ghost curse films. At least it didn\'t involve people dying because they walked into a house. The girl playing the writer played Hae-ju in Wishing Stairs...she looks much better without that ridiculous fat-suit.

It stopped in the last ten minutes of the movie! GRRRR! It was pretty spooky though, gotta find out how it ends.
Natalya (2/1/2009 @ 12:16 am)
The story beginning and middle were ok, but the ending is disppointing.
I liked Seo-Yeon actress acting, and she`s very beautiful.
lalababy (2/3/2009 @ 2:21 am)
this movie was good!
but how it ended is there going to be a part 2??
it was SCARY[[MOVIE]]
Seph (2/21/2009 @ 2:54 pm)
A pretty and atmospheric movie with numerous supernatural occurances involving the investigation of a portrait and the tragedy surrouding it. Very good movie, nice one! 9/10

This korea movie is one of the best i have see so

Interesting.........it was ok. Didnt understand the plot through.
MayEdward (4/9/2009 @ 1:39 am)
am in the middle of this movie right now,
wondering what\'s Muoi\'s justification to her vengence. She\'s the 3rd party in the relationship with the artist and the wealthy lady. Although that wealthy lady is cruel in her ways at getting Muoi back, but nonetheless it\'s understandable - her love\'s heart got stolen away by another girl. Seoyeon\'s case would be different though; wtf is wrong with that guy she liked and that bitch girl, getting guys to gangbang her at the playground? too coward to tell off a girl that he\'s taken? ballless fag. hope they die at the end >_>
EdwardMay (4/9/2009 @ 2:22 am)
scary scenes 5/10
actors and actress into the movie 5/10
story line 6/10
budget of the movie 4/10
progress of the movie is really slow, if she wants revenge, she should start it with herself. She knowing knows that THAT guy is already taken (whore) That is all i have to say!
yoru (5/20/2009 @ 12:45 am)
i liked it. messed up on what they did to that girl. hate men like that. >.< got what he deserves and i hope her ass go after the others who did that to her.
siuchiu (5/20/2009 @ 3:01 am)
is this Anh Thu from the famous German pop group Preluders?
dragonfly (5/28/2009 @ 4:51 pm)
Third time watching it must add to my asia horror collection.

kimbum (5/30/2009 @ 6:53 am)
ei why did this movie stopped at 48 mins? and all the movie ive watched stopped before ending it
L (5/30/2009 @ 3:40 pm)
re siuchiu
Anh Thu is an Vietnamese actress and definitely not from preluders and they aren\'t that famous anyway lol
Jaded (5/31/2009 @ 12:48 am)
I don\'t see how this film makes in into so many \"top 10 scariest\" lists. Unfortunately although the storyline is typically scary, its also over used.

I enjoyed the effects and how it was filmed but as a horror film I\'d give it 3/10. It just seemed too predictable.

If you like stories of \'revenge\' then give it a go!

^^

Charito (6/1/2009 @ 8:37 pm)
I\'ve been wanting to watch this one ,it was in my list of \"must see\"~I can say it was worth it!Although I missed something in the ending...Dunno what was it,did the protagonist live to carry on the curse and take revenge on the ghost\'s behalf ?
cathy Niko (6/2/2009 @ 12:26 pm)
Brilliantly done:)
jin-seong (6/6/2009 @ 11:24 am)
twisted! awesome! not scary but worth-watch!

the ending is kinda unpridictable
okay (6/7/2009 @ 11:06 pm)
this movie was disappointing...i would give it a 4/10...boring just a typical Korean horror movie...two girls, jealousy, revenge, suspense, bad plot, what a waste of my life!
Meri (6/11/2009 @ 7:22 pm)
Yes, this is a very typical Korean horror movie and I wouldn\'t say it was that good, I\'ve seen this same basic plot so many times before...
poison (6/12/2009 @ 3:41 am)
i think theres something wrong with it? .. it stops at about like 36 ish mins in.. it doesnt go one.. i dunno.. it wont work for me, and yes i have firefox and yes its fully loaded it just stops and has the playback button...
miina (6/12/2009 @ 5:24 am)
whoa. pretty impressive. even though it has same cliched theme/story, it didn\'t fail to scare. great build-up. the scariest scenes were near the end. brilliant ^^
wrathgem86 (6/12/2009 @ 9:22 am)

Hi Sadako, It\'s me Katy. I\'ve missed coming around and watching the movies with all of you. Hope to be back here again soon. I\'ve had to move all of my art recently to another Gallery at Advanced Photoshop (the mag) thus I\'ve been really busy. Hope life is being good to you..

Good to see you back, maybe pop into the forum or chatroom if you have time so we can catch up.Hope your well.
IPS (6/21/2009 @ 6:02 pm)
Yea weak ending.. The guy easy. The ghost should have sent 3 lady to rape that bastard.
(6/23/2009 @ 12:04 am)
I don\'t understand what this movie is about?? Can someone like explain it? why is there so many characters in this movie and what does this cruse have do to with the girl that\'s been raped?? i don\"t get it the movie at all???
nameo (6/23/2009 @ 6:17 am)
it has paused here. What to do
vanessa1976 T (6/25/2009 @ 3:21 pm)
well the girl that been raped story is a bit similar to what happened to muoi they were both betrayed and their lovers girlfriend had done cruel things to them. i agree w/u ips the guy should be raped but not w/ladies but better gays...
Juice (6/25/2009 @ 10:38 pm)

great movie, contain loads of moral, historical value (eventhough it might not be true) and artistic too. I dont really like movies with bad endings but this one can be justified with the moral of the story and the endings goes well with the story line.... Briliant!! definitly worth watching..

^_^ (10/21/2009 @ 9:49 pm)
AWESOME MOVIE!
A MUST SEE
JUST IGNORE THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS
BECAUSE THEY DIDN\'T FULLY WATCH IT ALL
YOU CAN\"T SKIP PARTS ON THIS
I GIVE THIS A 9/10
EXCELLENT WELL MADE FILM WORTH SEEING
I REST MY CASE ^_~
PS SPOILER NOTES
OH YEAH FOR PEOPLE WHO WATCH THIS FILM BUT DIDN\'T FULLY WATCH ALL OF IT, BECAUSE THEY WERE SKIPPING IT. THEN WROTE COMMENT ABOUT NOT UNDERSTAND WHY SHE KILL THE LAST COUPLE.
IT SHOWS IN THE MOVIE, THE REASON THE GHOST KILL THEM WAS BECAUSE THEY DID TERRIBLE THING TO HER, THE COUPLE SET HER UP AND THEY ALSO GOT A BUNCH OF GANG GUYS TOO THE COUPLE PLAN IT ALL ALONG WITH THE GANG GUYS. THE COUPLE ORDER THE GANG TO RAPE POOR GIRL WHO LATER ON GOT REVENGE ON THE COUPLE. BUT IN THE MOVIE I DIDN\'T SEE HER GET REVENGE ON GANG THOUGH, I DIDN\'T SEE HER GET THEM THOUGH. THAT THE REASON WHY, IT DOES MAKE SENSE.
ANY WAY IT A WELL MADE MOVIE
SO ENJOY WATCHING IT ^_~
TRUST ME IT GOOD!!!

This was a good movie, it\'s sad though that it seem like Vietnamese girls gets mistreated by those Korean guys & how if they are half Korean & half Vietnamese that they get looked down on by Koreans.
Qiss (11/7/2009 @ 9:36 am)
The starting was great but i guess the ending was quite disappointing.
Not scary but the story line was unique.

but i guess it proved
that vengeance can be
taken in your grave :3

Well, I don\'t think this is a bad movie...Divine retribution at its finest... I wish their murders were more brutal if you ask me they got off way to easy...I was hoping for their punishment the entire movie...GO MUOI!!!! :)
Kiri [Spoiler] (12/5/2009 @ 7:17 am)

it\'s okay, a bit confusing at the end
death create the curse but who did Seoyeon kill to start the curse?
