“This feminist horror story from Korea is sluggishly paced and confusingly told with flashbacks within flashbacks. […] Uninvolving characterizations combine with the grotesque denouement to result in pic that may surface briefly in specialized situations before landing in the disposal.” – from a review (Film reviews) by Daniel M. Kimmel
