Movie Info

Hyunn-Min is a former forensic sculptor who has a talent for reconstructing a person's face using only their skull. When the police come to him to help find a serial killer who is using acid to burn away the flesh of his victims, leaving only their bones, Hyunn-Min agrees to help, but soon his daughter begins having disturbing visions. Could it be that the bones in their house are causing her these terrifying hallucinations? He'd better find the answer fast, before a twisted conspiracy envelopes everyone involved.

Critic Reviews for Face

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

A sincere but superficial version of a familiar story.

March 18, 2005 | Rating: 2/4

A serial-murder crimer crossed with the Asian psychothriller, Face starts off gangbusters but doesn't deliver in its final act.

The performances are almost enough to overcome the story's essential inertness.

Typical Asian horror movie. Nothing really new here. That creepy girl with the hair hanging down over her face, etc, has gotten so overdone. Move on already.

A rather quick moving korean mystery tale that starts out rather gory, and then proceeds to use a sledgehammer to introduce the ghostly supernatural elements. Still this would have been a passable watch except for the last 15 minutes; there we experience the obligatory twist and a far-fetched coincidence that tests the viewer's patience. Overall, it is decent entertainment more so because of the acting rather than the script. However, it's just nothing new or original in the k-horror genre.
