Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum ★★★

This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

This review may contain spoilers.

i didn’t hate it but i didn’t love it either. it has its clear flaws. it’s a very simple jump scare mixed in with some dumb kids. it wasn’t revolutionary but i didn’t watch it because i thought it would be.
if you want to watch some creepy moments, obvious jump scares, and weird close ups of terrified people, this movie is for you.

spoilers ahead:
i can’t decide if i enjoyed the fact that it never explained anything. sure, it did the intro of what gonjiam was and the phenomenon surrounding it but it never explained what the hauntings were. however, i think that was maybe the point? this was just another dumb attempt by some dumb kids that failed miserably. maybe some horror doesn’t need explaining and we just watch it happen? idk. i’m probably thinking too much about it.
