A Tale of Two Sisters (2003) Synopsis:

After the death of their mum, a family in grief moves into a new house where strange things start to happen.


A Tales of Two Sisters is a very strange story that never really let to know what is exactly going on. At first, the film doesn’t provide you any clue of what is going on and as a result, the viewer gets the impression to be totally naked. Slowly, the film releases information here and there, just enough to keep you interested, but still curious. It pretty efficiently inserts you in the film’s bizarre atmosphere and gets you eager to know more.

The movie paste is really slow, so do not expect much action. It is more about psychological tension and creeps that slowly settle. The alternation of long dialogues and sudden jump scare is pretty efficient at giving the viewer the creep. I was bored during the first 30 min, but then the film kicks out with a few moments that are really scary, like this phantom that looks exactly like the one in “The Ring” or “The Grudge”, with the same slow movements and long hair hiding a creepy face.

For the rest, A Tale of Two Sisters is not really horror as properly said, but more a psychological thriller with a twisted end in the vein of “Memento” or “Fight Club”, with an Asian twist. Still, an awesome film that I would recommend to everyone
