A fantastic Korean horror film. Well-written, with nice cinematography. Very psychological, and minimal on the violence. Imagine The Shining, void of its dark comedy ...but plus extra creepiness, and with a few intense scenes where you may have to hold someone's hand. Highly recommended.

Had been some time since I'd seen this. Recently watched The Uninvited and was about 2/3 of the way through when I realized it was loosely based on this film. After viewing this film again, I can see why I didn't initially realize the connection between the two: there are vast plot differences. While I like The Uninvited, A Tale of Two Sisters is a fantastic movie. It is a beatifully photographed picture. The colors are deep, rich and vibrant. The horror is present, but mostly understated and works at a deeper psychological level. I agree w/the review who said it is confusing at times, but that only adds to the unease of the plotline. A wonderful film that would be a great addition to any fan or horror or suspense/thriller pictures. Highly recommended!

This is the UNRATED one disk version. To be honest, this didn't make very much sense to me, just shocking elements and a lot of screaming. I prefer Versus and ICHI THE KILLER to this.

"This film is probably the creepiest/most beautiful film I have seen in years. Attention to detail, pacing and picture quality in general was top notch.
Excellent movie!
