The Haunted House Project

| |

Hi guys,

I managed to get myself movie preview tickets to the new Korean Horror flick: "The Haunted House Project". All thanks to OMY.SG.
 
The ticket stub of the night.

 
Still a little shaken after the movie.

A little synopsis of the movie:
Over the course of 42 years, 6 went missing, 8 had accidents and 11 were murdered… 3 Paranormal investigators 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. A video footage of what they shot during their visit was recovered and may reveal the truth of their disappearance…

I must say for a timid mouse like me, the movie does have it's scary parts to make you tremble. I still remember there was a part where I was the only one in the cinema that screamed. But I must say the movie overall has the same rule of thumb as saving the Earth.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

Reduce - There are alot of things which went unexplained and seems like only dumb bimbos would do?

Reuse, Recycle - So many scenes have it's similarities with Sadako, Ju-On and I must say even the way they execute the movie is very close to Blair Witch Project (Note: Project *wink)

This movie started with a documentary interviewing the people leaving in the neighbourhood of the haunted house. It does kinda gives you the creeps when you hear about the 'scariness' of the house, but the suspense died down when a producer and her camera man went in search of the house, to recce the location for their ghost documentary, e.g. Ghost Hunters.

So on the day of filming, they gathered a team of 3 young paranormal investigators to explore the house. I was in fact pretty impressed by their special equipment to detect spirits like the one you can see below.

The whole film was mainly shot with a handheld camera, so expect to experience shaky scenes, shots of floors and walls. The idea is to make you feel as if you are the one filming experiencing all these with the crew, but if you have watch Blair Witch before, you will know how nauseating it can be.

So throughout the film, there will be glimpses of a figure etc. to shake you up but the real scary part is towards the end. Brace yourself for some gory bloody scenes!

Moral of the story: Stay away from spooky places and do not challenge the unspoken. (Come on, the poster made it super clear.)

All in all, I'll give this movie a 2.5 out of 5 stars. I guess for the faint hearted it's a 3 stars. I won't say it's a must watch movie, but it's definitely a movie for dudes to score some chicks!

Here's some shots from the movie (Credits to http://www.shaw.sg), enjoy ~
