Mun, blind since she was two years old, receives a cornea transplant so that she'll be able to see again. After having the transplant, she does indeed regain the use of her eyes; however, she also sees things that other people can not. At first, she's not even aware that she's seeing ghosts, as she believes the people she sees to just be normal humans who happen to want to talk to her; but after one particular incident, she realizes what's going on and goes back to her doctor for help. From there, Mun learns where the corneas came from and what happened to the person who originally had them...

Decent little movie, though not as good as I was expecting. This movie seems like a smarter, more story-oriented version of "The Sixth Sense", with a few twists thrown in for good measure. As a stand-alone film, it was quite great; however, some points definitely were lost due to the lack of originality going on for it. At more than enough spots in the movie, I knew what was going to happen, due to the scenes having happened in other movies before it, which is never a good thing.

As I said, the storyline follows the same general idea of "The Sixth Sense", with a young lady replacing that annoying brat of a kid, and a more logical explanation behind the character seeing ghosts. However, this movie does stand apart from "The Sixth Sense" and the clones that followed it by being much more about setting a creepy atmosphere than showing lots of gore or special effects. The ghost scenes are much fewer and further between, but when they do happen, you appreciate them a lot more due to the atmosphere and settings that have been built up leading into it.

Overall, worth a viewing if you're a fan of films of this nature, but if you are a fan, then you've likely seen a lot of the movies that directly influenced this one and may be let down by the lack of originality in spots. 8/10.

It was an excellent movie! You know how they could make it better? Adding a bit more gore to the kills... and maybe adding a freak twist at the end where it turns out that the eye doctor is a ghost... OOO! And if they got Bruce Willis to play the doctor... hey... wait a minute...

I thought this was one of the creepiest movies that I've seen in a long time. The elevator scene was fantastic!
