Voices Inspired by the popular Korean comic book series It's Two People by Kang Kyung-ok, Oh Ki-hwan's tells the tale of a young woman who believes she is marked for death after seeing a pair of shocking murders. A wave of murder has washed over the city, but why are seemingly normal people suddenly turning into maniacal killers? People are hearing voices commanding them to commit murder, but with no discernable pattern to the killings, it's impossible to tell who will be next. Unable to trust even her closest friends, one brave girl attempts to survive long enough to solve the mystery and stop the slaughter. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Best Asian Horror Film of the past few years
Posted by: LCStCy from: studio city, ca on
"Voices" is a creepy, supernatural thriller revolving around the paranoid belief that those dearest to you may want you dead. Interestingly it's based on the best-selling Korean manga "Two will come" which I read a few years back. I loved the plot, the clever direction, the beautiful cinematography and the many visceral thrills that give us gore fans plenty of eye candy.
I saw the film in a theater in January and the main reason I relate to the story is that every day you read in the news papers and see on TV how husbands kill their wives, brothers kill their sisters and parents kill their children. This film smartly exploits the fear that this could happen to you.
I love Asian horror films and this is clearly the best and most original one to come out of Korea in the past year or two and the strongest film from this year's "8 films to die for" series.
