Movie Reviews

Interesting cultural comment
John Bates | Branson, MO | 04/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The thoughtfulness of the satire in this film may be lost on those seeking a cheap or violent thrill. This film is a not-so-subtle jab at Korean culture, as well as being entertaining and fun. The re-make, "Happiness of the Katakuris" is more energetic and crazy but loses the cultural insight that sets this film apart from just another 'Asian Horror Movie'.
If you enjoyed Hitchcock's "The Trouble With Harry", you will notice some similarities, right down to a few identical shots and sequences."
Avoid TaiSeng!!!

"My rating is more for the DVD quality than the actual movie. The movie itself I'd give around 3.5 stars. I've seen a couple of TaiSeng release DVD's now and must say they are terrible. The TaiSeng Quiet Family version that I got was the special edition so I can't say for sure its the same as this one. But the picture quality is comparable to VHS and the subtitles are terrible. Numerous times throughout the film, the subtitles will flash on the screen for a second if that and the translation often seems to be poor. So I'd only recommend getting this if you don't mind poor quality DVD picture and you understand Korean. Otherwise, you'll probably be very detracted when watching this."
