We aren't meant to understand the story fully until the film's closing minutes, so the shocks and suggestions come in a muddled context.

Although A Tale of Two Sisters has some excellent suspense sequences, it falters badly during the dramatic parts.

A bit of cinematic showing-off that offers an intriguing puzzle but never really makes us care.

With style to spare, this Korean import cranks up the creeps through atmospheric sound design, slick cinematography and crimson-drenched art direction.

Haunting presences, inexplicable cutaways, overwhelming suspense, deeply disturbing sub-themes and a general willingness to leave things unanswered. Fantastic!
