After an unspecified traumatic event, two sisters go back home with their father, where they’re not exactly getting a warm reception from their wicked stepmother. Nothing is quite what it seems in this masterful horror thriller which keeps you guessing until the last moment as to how it all fits together. With this story about unconditional sisterly love, director Jee-woon Kim won a string of prizes all over the world, including a Silver Raven for his graceful actress Jung-ah Yum at the 2004 BIFFF. Kim doesn’t need cheap shocks but relies instead on convincing characters, sinister atmospherics, and agonizingly slow camera work. Forget the inferior American remake The Uninvited and just witness how strong a cast-iron concept can be if you meticulously stick to it!
