Mimic Korean horror movie review

mimic_poster

See that awesome poster? ALL LIES, cos they never released it here, in my city, they promised so on Cinepolis, they had fucking posters, trailers, I was even going to watch it on fucking VIP and then what? Premiere date came and it wasn’t there!!! ALL LIES. But they had a Sailor Moon musical…2 times? Fuck off!

So sad and pissed off ,sniff, was really looking for it.

Now of course I watched it in a different way, because, lol, Internet, IT’S AWESOME.

I won’t spoil it for you, just know it’s about a woman, suffering due to her missing son, goes to live on the mountains with her husband, her daughter and her mom with Alzheimer? or something.

There is a mysterious cave, where mysterious things happened and apparently a weird ass creature lives there, it can mimic, hence the name, any voice, so you can guess it’ll be exciting to see how guilt and deceit wrap these people up!

I learned something from this movie and the tag-along:

 

  1.  Don’t befriend little girls that you find in the mountains
  2. Specially if you find them near places with corpses
  3. If a random, older,blind/disabled/scarred/heavily tattooed religious person warns you about something, listen!
  4. Don’t follow mysterious voices..much less on a freaking mountain!
  5. Asian people are BRUTAL when they abuse others,no simple hitting will do, no sir, let’s seriously cause damage, as much physical as mental!
  6. If the mirror knocks, don’t answer!
  7. Don’t go out in the rain at night looking for mysterious voices or little girls
  8. Maybe just skip the mountains altogether

 

PS: I just finished watching it..hmm I expected a different kind of ending, more like the tag-along 2, this is understandable but nah, I’m glad I didn’t watch it in VIP, ALTHOUGH, I would still go watch every Asian horror movie they show here, for support and so that they bring more, dammit.

Ryeong a.k.a “The ghost” /”Dead friend”

Thank you South Korea, you have yet again brought an amazing movie for me. If you’ve watched “the grudge” and “dark water” and liked them, you are gonna love this one.

After I’m done with my Asian horror movies watching fest, I’ll most definitely add this one on my new top chart.  You get a girl with amnesia, a confusing past, revengeful spirit , mysterious events and a very nice plot twist, as expected from Asian films.

I have to confess I am in no way used to Korean names so it got confusing at times, also cos they all seem more similar to me than Japanese do,  I’m sure that is cos I’m silly.

Anyhow, I don’t want to spoil you, but I want to recommend it, I enjoyed it so much, it has a great atmosphere, it keeps you interested and it’s an overall pretty good movie. Plus the lead character is…well, the twist was really nice, seriously.
