What a clusterfuck of weirdness. We have a wig that is evil, quite evil. It moves and stuff but not nearly as freakily or eerily as one might expect. Anyhow this wig is given as a gift from one sister to another (who happens to be going through chemo). The wig seems to make her feel much better but it starts to control her actions. The ending has quite the twist...but the twist I thought was stupid yet still I shant ruin it. I didn't see it coming I guess is the best way to put it. Anyhow it just seemed really pointless and it dragged on and on without much ever really happening. Usually I like Asian horror but this one didn't quite make the grade, still the odd moment and the basic story are kind of worthwhile. It just seems like a decent enough concept that could have been scary, but it never really gets around to it. More of an Asian drama with a tiny bit of a horror concept.

Availability:  On DVD
