The setup is simple, a mother and plastic surgeon who is obsessed with her daughter's beauty performs several operations on her daughter's friends, who begin to die of seemingly self inflicted injuries. From that, you'd think you'd know where the film was going, but like a good Giallo film, the most obvious twist is really just the tip of the damn iceberg. The situation becoming more grizzly and horrific than you could possibly guess from the outset. The best part is, though there is a pretty definitive villain of the story, the real villain of the story is South Korea's (and indeed most of the civilized world's) obsession with physical beauty.
If you like movies like Deep Red, Tenebrae, and Audition, you MUST see this movie.
Rock on Fright Knights and keep the darkness scary.
...still not very sure as to how this relates to any Cinderella tale enough to be entitled "Cinderella"...except for some VERY minor details.
the ending was kinda confusing as i wasn't sure who was the real daughter..
Cinderella is not the worst Korean horror film ever made (I don't think it is even the worst Korean film of this year) but watching it is a pretty depressing experience as a fan of the genre.
Definitely skippable, unless Asian horror is your comfort food (as it is mine).
