A dark depressing slow burn supernatural horror movie. As an anecdote, I noticed if Shudder deletes your review once on a movie you can't re-post anything again as it'll automatically delete under that movie so I cancelled my subsciption.

Just to point out this movie was made quite a long time *before* the tragic death of Elisa Lam - making that incident all the more creepy and suspicious.

I was not prepared for that ending and I cried a lot. So if you like melancholy endings, good ghost stories, or Asian horror in general, I highly recommend this one.
