A review of a Korean Science Fiction film hommage á Blade Runner

As a general thing I love Asian films, particularly Asian horror films, where the horror is so much more gut level than most of the splatter and torture-porn that passes for horror here.  There, all ghosts are bad and all ghosts are destructive and they're not particular interested in who or what they are destroying.  It is the disinterested malevolence that raises the Asian vision of the supernatural to truly terrifying.  One the other hand when handled deftly as in the Hong Kong film My Left Eye Sees Ghosts you have one of the frothiest confections of a film since Hollywood exited the 1930s/40s. 


  1. Usually I love to see the Asian film. It is one of the best film with better kind of story.
