The Red Shoes
Directed by Yong-gyun Kim
In this twisted K-horror take on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fable, a woman finds a pretty pair of shoes, not realizing they carry something evil. When recently divorced Sun-jae brings the red (actually pink) shoes home, her daughter Tae-su grows intensely jealous, and her behavior quickly spirals out of control. When Tae-su’s friend steals the shoes, she dies in a mysterious accident - with both of her feet cut off. Sun-jae wisely realizes she must act fast before others fall victim to the dark forces inhabiting the red shoes - but scary surprises await.

Overall enjoyable, but few points irked me: - Am I color blind or those shoes are pink? - Call me stupid but I can't understand the ending because the time frame is weird. Was it double possession? Well, not first time I got mindf*ed by Korean horror, their plot is cryptic as hell, especially at the end. - My goodness is there someone who really has such a display glass case like in the store just for shoes? Not counting those with money to burn, just average people. Red flag for crazy obsession right there.
Nice curse movie
Overall good, but the twist really needed some explaining. It was barely hinted at earlier. Also good use of unreliable narrator.
I enjoyed the story line but the little girl annoyed me. Lol especially when she was screaming and yelling at her mom...geez
excellent Korean horror film!
