Critic Reviews for Spellbound

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Although much of the film's broad humor at times makes it feel like an unwanted mash-up of "Scary Movie" and "Date Movie," writer-director Hwang In-ho invests the material with enough clever scenarios to keep it engaging.

An understandable hit in its country, this Korean rom-com/horror film charmingly sneaks its way under your skin.

Audience Reviews for Spellbound

½

a little bit spooky despite starting off prestige-ously. not a bad show but definitely not the "romcom" it was classified to be.

It loses some steam towards the end, but there's lots of laughs and plenty of charm. Definitely worth watching.

This movie is a hidden gem. As someone who loves both romcoms and horrors, I was elated to find a romcom horror! I forced my friends to watch it as well and they too loved it!
