As far as protégés of The Blair Witch Project go, Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum is genuinely unsettling in all the right ways. It only staggers briefly towards the end, when it begins to lean too much upon familiar genre staples, reminding us that this found footage film is in fact just a movie... but not before scaring you with some disturbing ideas of its own in the process. Room 402 is not for the faint of heart.
