    Meh! One more of those "real live actors interact with CGI talking animals" sunday afternoon filler crap. We already have Garfield, the Chipmunks, Smurfs, the mouse that wanted to be a chef, a.o. It's just one more for tv stations to fill their schedule. I think these things work better as an animated movie.

    This remains one of my favorite South Korean movies ever. No matter how many times I watch it, it is always exciting and entertaining. Reminiscent of 80s Hong Kong, specially Tsui Hark, with the typical Korean melo-drama, this is the perfect blend of period drama, doomed romance and horror.

    I don't understand all the hate towards this film. It was quite funny all along, specially the final sequence with the car chasing. This is not a masterpiece, that's for sure, but we can't complain of 85 minutes of pure entertainment.

    Most of the reviews I read about this participation of the Master Argento in the series were not very favorable. I really do not know the reason for that. This is the best episode I've seen so far. Intense, disturbing (Jenifer is truly disturbing; excellent make-up fx), full of suspense (Argento is keen on creating this type of very heavy ambience), gory (too much gore for Argento, not that I'm complaining, but it's not his usual style). The icing on the cake is really the soundtrack by Claudio Simonetti (ex-Goblin), a frequent contributor to Argento's films. Fantastic entry in the "Masters Of Horror" series.
