Ahnyeong Haseyo! Gamsahamida for omy’s invite for me to watch this Korean movie “The Haunted House Project” at Shaw Plaza.
The Haunted House Project, is also known as Deserted House. The poster above looks C-C–R-R-E-E-E-E-E-P-P-Y, right? Thus, it is a horror movie.
Just to let you know that the word ‘Haunt’ can be reshuffled into a malay word called “Hantu” which is ghost.
Great that there are English and Chinese subtitles for me to understand what is the story about as the dialogues are spoken in Korean (I only understand a bit of Korean). This is my 1st time watching Korean movie and 1st time watching a horror movie. Although I do watch Korean dramas, but it was dubbed in mandarin on TV channels.
Here’s the sypnosis of the story:
Over the course of 42 years, 6 went missing, 8 had accidents and 11 were murdered… And 3 Paranormal investigators (Club Members) and 3 camera crew decide to look into this infamously haunted house. Ignoring the danger, the group of six entered the haunted house and disappeared without a trace. This movie shows A video footage of what they shot during their visit was recovered and may reveal the truth of their disappearance…
While I was watching “The Haunted House Project“, the movie was made it so real and scary as the story progresses as I thought it is really a real life story although it was just a movie. In this movie, what the villagers had mentioned to the camera crew about the haunted house and incidents happened while people visit the house, the camera crew just simply ignore those warning after their 1st visit to the Haunted House. Until something happened…..
In real life, I also heard quite a lot of taboos regarding haunted places and spirits.
For example, people playing “Ouija board” (Oui is Yes in French and Ja is Yes in German/Dutch), some people who got possessed with spirits (or followed by them) after they got addicted playing it while asking the spirits what’s their future will be like. Something like asking the spirit to move the pen and point at something and predict ‘future’.
There are also quite a lot of other beliefs for the spirits but I won’t mention much on.
Sometimes, it is better to believe in those beliefs than being possessed or get harmed. Personally, safety is more important than ignoring those beliefs. This is the moral of the story. So it is better to play safe.
So if you really love to watch horror movies, this will be one of the suitable movies for you to watch. Be prepared to see S-S-C-C-A-A-A-R-R-y scenes too! If you wish to find out more on what happened to the 6 characters, you can come to the cinemas to watch this movie which opens today, 2 Dec 2010.
That’s all folks! Once again, thank you Omy for this movie invite.
