YesAsia Editorial Description

Chaw and To Catch a Virgin Ghost director Shin Jung Won returns with another oddball horror comedy Ghost Sweepers! Ghostbusters with a shamanistic twist, the funny and frightful film revolves around a ragtag group of shamans and their epic exorcism battle against a grudge-filled ghost town. Funnyman Kim Su Ro (The Quiz Show Scandal) leads the ghostbusting cast with breakout actor Lee Je Hoon (Architecture 101, The Front Line), Kang Ye Won (Quick), Kwak Do Won (A Company Man), Kim Yoon Hye (Alice) and child actor Yang Kyung Mo.

In the haunted village of Uljin, darkness fills the air and vengeful spirits lurk in every corner. The top shamans gather to exorcise the spirits but their efforts are futile and most give up. In the end, only six remain to fight against the ultimate curse: the master of all shamans (Kim Su Ro), an engineer exorcist (Lee Je Hoon), a monk (Kwak Do Won), a boy (Yang Kyung Mo) with the gift of precognition, an astrologer (Kim Yoon Hye) who can read the past and one unlucky reporter (Kang Ye Won) there to cover the story.

Professional Review of "Ghost Sweepers (DVD) (Taiwan Version)"

January 11, 2013

This professional review refers to Ghost Sweepers (DVD) (2-Disc) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)
Attempting to inject a little originality into the horror genre is a laudable endeavour indeed, and something which has characterised the career to date of Korean director Shin Jung Won, who previously gave fans the ghosts and gangsters comedy To Catch a Virgin Ghost and the equally leftfield Chaw which was basically Jaws with a giant killer pig. For his latest outing Ghost Sweepers, he returns to supernatural hijinks, following an oddball group of shamans as they take on an angry ghost and uncover dark secrets on a remote haunted fishing island.

The film opens with shamans from across Korea gathering to try and exorcise the evil spirits which have been plaguing the village of Uljin. Sadly, the exorcism proves more difficult than expected, and when their best efforts come to nothing, the majority flee the island and head home. Deciding to stay behind for various reasons are an ill-matched bunch of five eccentrics, including famed television shaman Teacher Park (top Korean comedian Kim Su Ro, Vampire Cop Ricky), monk Shim In (Kwak Do Won, A Company Man), a young exorcist called Suk Hyun (Lee Je Hoon, Architecture 101) who uses electronics and engineering, tarot card wielding astrologer Seung Hee (Kim Yoon Hye, Alice) and Wol Gwang (Yang Kyung Mo), a morbid looking young boy who can see the near future. Joining them in their creepy quest is Chan Young (Kang Ye Won, Quick), an unfortunate reporter dumped there by her boss to cover the story, who soon finds herself risking her life along with the shamans as things turn dangerous and skeletons come tumbling out of closets.

As with To Catch a Virgin Ghost, the real strength of Ghost Sweepers is director Shin Jung Won's highly creative approach, throwing in all manner of unpredictable wackiness and giving the film an old school 1980s Hong Kong spooky feel. There's certainly little of the melodrama which tends to creep into Korean genre efforts, Shin sticking firmly to action, frights and gags, and the film is fast moving and manic as a result. This counts for a lot, and though the pacing and tone are a little off at times, the film is energetic and filled with delightful moments of strangeness that keep the viewer entertained throughout. Though the plot itself may sound fairly straightforward, it goes off on several enjoyable tangents and subplots, with a good few twists along the way, and whilst there's nothing too earth-shattering or ambitious on show, Shin does a fine job of delivering something that feels fresh and fun.

The film works mainly as an ensemble piece, the script making the most of the various relationships and links between the cast, and though it's probably be going too far to accuse it of substantial character development, they're all a likeable and interesting bunch. It certainly helps that the cast are all on good form and seem to have been having fun, Kim Su Ro unsurprisingly dominating and throwing in a fine comedic turn and Kang Ye Won doing a decent and charismatic job in what could have been a fairly thankless straight role.

Another reason why the film succeeds is through a solid balance of laughs and scares, a notoriously difficult act to pull off which has sunk many a horror comedy in the past. While the focus is mainly on the gags, Shin never neglects the film's more serious supernatural elements, and shows a fine command and knowledge of the genre, with some atmospheric and reasonably sinister scenes sprinkled throughout, as well as some surprising deaths and mild splatterings of blood. As a result, though it's hard to imagine anyone actually being frightened by the film, this does make things feel less as if the horror was included merely as a gimmick, and the jokes themselves are all the funnier for playing off against the macabre.

All of this combines to make Ghost Sweepers a very satisfying watch, and Shin Jung Won's best and most accomplished film to date. An excellent, not to mention rare example of horror and comedy truly gelling, it's an amusing, well-judged film that should go down well with fans of the form or of the highly entertaining cast.

Motley Crew Mystics v A Big Greedy Cloud Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
A group of eccentric mercenary psychics travel to Uljin, a Korean fishing island, to cleanse the island of an evil cloud with sinister greed problems. But the shamans, who wish to reap a bounty reward for their magic talents, merely provoke the sinister force into fight mode. The pensive and untrusting Uljin fisherman also find the mystic crowd a bother, considering the evil spirit threatens the fishermen if they tolerate the shamans’ presence. But the demonic is certainly challenged by this determined mystical motley crew. Travelling by coach as if on their way to the seaside (and getting some Uljin psychic energy bother on route), the dynamic mystics are led by The Master of Shamans Mr Park (the charismatic Su-ro Kim), a top exorcist whose talent is to draw out disturbing and powerful dark spirits from ‘demonically’ possessed clients (for a top price of course), joined by electronics whiz psychic Seok-hee (Je-hon Lee); seductive astrologer Seung-hee (Yoon-hye Kim) who throws dangerous flying razor edged tarot cards; Shim-in a martial arts monk (Do-on Kwak) who sees the evil cloud with his green ‘Seeing Eye’ (when he lifts his black eye patch up that is); school boy Wol-gwang (Kyung-mo Yang) who shakes his head a lot and portents visions, generally ominous ones for the shaman’s fatal ‘verses’ D-day. And for solidarity, female reporter Chan-yeong (Ye-wom Kang) who pressed by her boss to obtain a mystery story, also ventures to Uljin to find out what happened to her father, after he went missing there. On arrival Shaman Park conducts a Super Massive ritual to cleanse the island of evil, although it goes pear shaped when the dark black cloud rages, blows a psychic raspberry and continues to pursue its interest – protecting a stash of treasure it plundered from a sunken Japanese war ship. Soon a mystical fight ensues between a very nasty ghost (who morphs into a sinister looking street warrior gang boss) and the energy-wielding shamans, for the sunken booty.

This madcap film is approachable if you like slapstick Asian ghost horror fair. Mind you it can flip your emotions with a grisly flashback scene that alone could have been the plot of a more serious thriller movie. But it’s good in a zany HK martial arts movie and a smidgen of Tekken way. The main characters also integrate well with camaraderie and humour. Interesting seeing Je-hon Lee again and of course Su-ro back in something not far away from “Volcano High”. This 2 disk is region ALL.
