Whispering Corridors (1998) aka Yeogo Goedam

3 / 5

Yet another film that deals with Asian ghosts that is quite open for interpretation and confusing for Westerners (okay well for me anyhow). Don't expect gore, in fact don't expect much in the way of horror at all, if anything it's atmospheric I suppose. A teacher has killed herself apparently at a school, and a new teacher arrives and rumours and strange ghostly things keep least that's what I made of it. It's okay to watch because as I said it is rather atmospheric, but don't expect to remember much about it even a few days after viewing, it's just not nearly as entertaining as most of the similar Asian films and it's quite slow moving.

Availability:  On DVD
