If you are looking for Asian horror film with really good twist, check out horror film called Two Moons (a.k.a. “The Sleepless”).
The movie stars with a group of three strangers waking up in a strange, possibly haunted house in the woods. These three characters are Seok-ho played by Kim Ji-seok, a schoolgirl In-jeong played by Park Jin-joo, and So-hee played by Park Han-byeol. They have no idea how the got there and they are trying to figure out what is going on. That is only thing I am going to say about the movie. Less you know, better it is for your enjoyment for this type of movie. One thing for sure, it is not what you think it is.
The Review (Spoiler Free)
In the beginning of the movie, you are not sure what is going on. It does seems like some kind of haunted house, but it isn’t really. It is bit more of I really like this type of movie because you are glue to the screen trying to figure out where the movie is moving to.
The movie is not completely original but I like the mystery behind the film and big twist reveals towards the end of the movie. The ending is also very good and very satisfying. It does reminds me bit of The Cabin in the Woods.
The title Two Moons is some kind of Asian folks-tale where when you see two moons in the night sky, the spirit world is able to interact with human world.
Acting and Directing
The actors are very good. Although high school character In-Jeong does whine constantly throughout the movie. It was bit annoying.
Two Moons is directed by Kim Dong Bin, previously responsible for the fun “Red Eye” in 2005 and Korean “Ringu” retread “The Ring Virus” in 1999, with a script by Lee Jong Ho, writer of Ah Byeong Ki’s popular 2005 hit “Bunshinsaba.
The movie is not really original but it is worth watching. I really love the big twist and the ending.
I give 4 out of 5 stars.
