Creepy, interesting, but I had a hard time sympathizing with any of the characters. Reminded me of Hamlet. Outstanding cinematography - I saw it months ago but I can still recall certain images very clearly.

Very atmospheric. Very unengaging. A couple of twists but rather dull because of the obvious predictablity. It unfolded very well however it was so overly dramatic. Someone was obviously more into the cinematography and how it looked than the actual movie..... Was like a lifetime movie on steroids.

The storyline is SICK, as in it's grossly eerie, sick minds. It's sad that Nicole Kidman and the few recognize-able faces ended up in a film like this....they must have really needed work.

Really liked this film. It was well shot and thought-provoking. The Korean director is best known for "Old Boy" and "Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance." The artistic and beautiful cinematography paired with a Hitchcock-esque plot makes this a charmingly eerie film. Great acting from all the leads and an ending that leaves you thinking long after the credits roll.

I felt like canceling my HOLD when I read the negative comments. Well, I loved it. Not at all slow for every frame was filled with brilliant detail and artistic directing. It's so nice to see a villain who is so charming. This Korean director is a genius.

A bit slow. I read it was supposed to be like Hitchcock. I guess it was a little bit, but I am not sure what the point is? People are psychos? It might be good for bullies to watch though.

A stylish crime drama of a far-out and crazy family. Audience were shown the "Here Comes Charlie" theme but few suspected the wild card of the more dramatic "India the Hunter" that followed.

Surprisingly entertaining. Never would have guessed the ending would be like that.

A real creepy visual and auditory pleasure. I'm hoping that this film was successful enough that its Korean director can score more American gigs.

From IMDb: India Stoker: My ears hear what others cannot hear; small faraway things people cannot normally see are visible to me. These senses are the fruits of a lifetime of longing, longing to be rescued, to be completed. Just as the skirt needs the wind to billow, I'm not formed by things that are of myself alone. I wear my father's belt tied around my mother's blouse, and shoes which are from my uncle. This is me. Just as a flower does not choose its color, we are not responsible for what we have come to be. Only once you realize this do you become free, and to become adult is to become free. India Stoker: He used to say, sometimes you need to do something bad to stop you from doing something worse.

Evelyn Stoker (to her daughter, India): "You know, I've often wondered why it is we have children in the first place... and the conclusion I've come to is... at some point in our lives we realize things are... they're screwed up beyond repair. So we decide to start again. Wipe the slate clean. Start fresh. And then we have children. Little carbon copies we can turn to and say, "You will do what I could not. You will succeed where I have failed." Because we want someone to get it right this time. ...But not me... Personally speaking, I can't wait to watch life TEAR-YOU-APART..."
