Another confusing Asian ghost flick that I had to look up immediately after watching to try and gain some perspective on what I saw. Where this one slightly rises above is that it actually does try to offer some frights regardless of the fact they didn't really work. Here we have a person who committed suicide, and then a bunch of people begin seeing visions from a strange website, and visions on the wall, and so on. Apparently this was some sort of statement about modern loneliness since this whole thing was brought on by an evil website I think. Anyhow, I just saw the preview for the remake and let's hope it makes more sense this time around.
