This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
L'ensemble est plutôt bancal et décevant, rappelant trop "L'échine du diable" de Guillermo Del Toro, oeuvre bien meilleure et plus subtile que cette pâle resucée d'une thématique déjà un peu usée, malgré une atmosphère inquiétante bien gérée... www.cinefiches.com
There are a million movies set in ghost-infested hospitals, featuring scared, sick children, and predictable lines. This is one of them. Expect plenty of otter-like smiles from Flockheart. You have been warned.
The dimly-lit, run-down hospital with its empty corridors & presence on the disused floor above that exerts a dangerous yet touching control over the patients was eerily & poignantly realised. Tropes of Asian ghost films are woven together with something of a gothic element, of hidden ills in distant wings. I felt the spirit girl was a pretty amazing creation. Dangerous & possessive but with a tender sadness to her.
