Critic Reviews for Wishing Stairs
Wishing Stairs is wishy-washy. It flounders its fear and confuses ephemeral with evil.
While not as dramatically robust as predecessor Memento Mori, this film is less heavy on emotions and plays better with the story's horror-centric side.
Audience Reviews for Wishing Stairs
Not Creepy but entertaining.
Wishing Stairs, the third in the Whispering Corridors (or Ghost School) series, is the one I had the hardest time with. Maybe I've been spoiled by the excellent three other films, but I just couldn't get into this one so much. Unlike Memento Mori or The Voice, this is more of a standard horror film and the characterization is a little weak. For example, the 'ghost' in this film becomes quite malevolent and does some questionable things because they seem so out of character given what has come before. Yoon Jae-Yeon is clearly aiming for pathos here but it feels undeserved, and the 'wishing stairs' device itself is just that. The climax is a looong time coming too; the pace here is virtually unremittingly slow, and it's another 'girl with long black hair' film complete with Ringu like odd movements. It is however, beautiful to look at and has some successful shocks. As a standalone film I may have liked it more, but in comparison to others in the series it falls short.
think whispering corridors part ll...thought the movie was effective for its genre...jut not as strong as 'wc'..still worth a watch
