Movie Info

A teen girl with artistic inclinations, Jiney (Race Wong) takes acclaimed photographs but is unhappy with her work. After witnessing a fatal car crash and shooting pictures at the grisly scene, Jiney becomes preoccupied with death. Followed by the obsessive, camcorder-wielding Anson (Anson Leung), Jiney soon heads down a dark path. While Jiney's friend Jas (Rosanne Wong) tries to help her, it may be too late to prevent her macabre decline, which has roots in a childhood trauma.

Audience Reviews for Ab-normal Beauty

  • Jan 21, 2011
    It didn't completely turn out the way I thought it would. Had this been made in Europe or Hollywood I think they would have gotten more of the subject matter. It's still not a bad movie. Starts off well I thought and ends brutally too, but the middle part was a bit slow. Well acted and stylishly shot, but a missed opportunity.

    Man this was boring. This is the first Korean movie that disappointed me (although I'm pretty new at Korean movies). I always thought that Asian movies are supposed to be <b>extremely</b> scary. This does have <i>some</i> scary moments. But it was too slow and almost killed me. The twist at the end was obviously a good one. But that doesn't make this any good.

    I always thought that if I was ever in the mood for a fantastic horror movie, east Asian filmmakers would never disappoint. Oxide Pang has disproved that assumption with this convoluted mess of a movie. Sure, it's beautifully shot, and the music is excellent. But the sparse threads of plot that do exist in this movie aimlessly meander in search of a point without reaching it. I don't mind style over substance, but style without substance is just plain boring.

    Very good film combining the gritty and corny sides of Asian horror into an interesting cocktail of blood!
