Professional Review of "The Sleepless (DVD) (Taiwan Version)"

February 15, 2013

This professional review refers to Two Moons (DVD) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)
Pretty much every summer sees a clutch of horror films hitting Korean cinemas, and 2012 was no exception, one of which was Two Moons (a.k.a. The Sleepless), a chiller revolving around a group of strangers waking up in a strange, possibly haunted house in the woods. The film has a decent genre pedigree, having been directed by Kim Dong Bin, previously responsible for the fun Red Eye in 2005 and Korean Ringu retread The Ring Virus in 1999, with a script by Lee Jong Ho, writer of Ah Byeong Ki's popular 2005 hit Bunshinsaba: Ouija Board.

The film kicks off in sinister fashion, with a group of 3 strangers waking up in the basement of a remote house in the middle of a forest, with no memory of how they got there. Unemployed graduate Seok Ho (Kim Ji Seok, Take Off), horror and mystery writer So Hee (Park Han Byul, Yoga) and schoolgirl In Jeong (Park Jin Joo, Sunny) venture out and explore the house, which despite being apparently empty has an eerie atmosphere, the trio hearing strange noises and seeing figures lurking around. Finding themselves unable to escape the forest, they decide to wait for dawn, while trying to work out why they are there and what the connection between them might be.

It's no secret that Korean horror has of late been in the creative doldrums, with only a few films in recent years standing out or offering anything even vaguely new. Thankfully, with Two Moons Kim Dong Bin at least makes an effort to add something of a twist to the usual formulas, offering up a horror which mixes mystery and psychological elements rather than churning out the usual vengeful ghost tale. While opening with strangers in a basement isn't itself anything new, and although genre veterans and fans of cinematic puzzles will probably guess the major twist, there's still plenty to be figured out, and the plot is well constructed and gripping, with a few surprises here and there. Kim and writer Lee do a good job of gradually revealing the film's secrets, skilfully working in flashbacks and memories (many of which are found to be unreliable), and keep the pace up throughout the short sub-90 minute running time, despite the occasional lapse in pacing. This in itself is no small achievement, and the film certainly feels fresher and more inventive than the majority of other Korean horrors of the last year or so.

This ambiguity and mystery works very well for the first half of the film, and wisely Kim shifts things up a gear before the scenes of the characters wandering around and failing to find a way to escape get too repetitive. After there being only a few jump frights here and there in its earlier scenes, the film does get to the horror as things progress, and there are some very solid scares and creative use of the supernatural towards the end, making for a reasonably rousing climax. When fully revealed, the premise itself is fairly intriguing, and without wishing to spoil any of its surprises, the whole two moon concept of there being one moon for the human world and another for the underworld is well implemented, with some visually impressive shots of the night sky. Kim does a particularly good job when it comes to generating an ominous atmosphere, making great use of what was obviously a pretty limited budget, and the house set is effectively utilised for an air of increasing claustrophobia.

While none of this is enough to make Two Moons outstanding or terribly memorable, it's nevertheless a superior example of Korean horror, and one which proves that there's still life in the form. Kim Dong Bin shows again that he's one of the country's better genre helmers, and it's a shame that his output hasn't been more prolific, as he clearly has more to offer than many of his contemporaries.

Awake and out of time? Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
The Earth’s moon seems ‘dead’, but due to all physical objects constituted and sustained by ever transforming energy, is it really as ‘dead’ as perceived? Anyway, here in “The Sleepless” two moons represent a juxtaposition reality, an astral space of the everyday and the underworld. Seok-ho (Ji-seok Kim), a 28 year old student and school girl In-jeong (Jin-joo Park) find themselves together in a house cellar, both scared and confused to where they are and how they got there. Suddenly another woman appears in the dark cellar, So-hee (Han-byul Park) who is inquisitive about Seok-ho and In-jeong, but seems familiar about the ‘haunted’ place. As the cellar door isn’t locked, the three leave the basement believing they hadn’t been kidnapped, so explore the house discovering it situated in a large forest. Being night, So-hee stays in the house but Seok-ho and In-jeong decide to leave and trek through the ominous surrounding forest to search safety. But after splitting up Seok-ho is nearly frightened to death when seeing a falling figure from a tree, and returning to In-jeong, he cannot understand why his half hour alone search seemed a mere minute to In-jeong. Afraid both return to the house where they find So-hee again. So-hee tells the others she’s a horror writer and came to the haunted house to help her with ideas for a new horror novel, but Seok-ho and In-jeong can’t remember how they came to be in the basement. So-hee coaxes In-jeong to remember, but as In-jeong shuts her eyes to think, she suddenly slips into convulsions as a suppressed memory is jostled within her subconscious. So-hee however calms the girl down.

With scratch like moaning sounds echoing around the house, In-joeng and Seok-ho are increasingly afraid, with things drastically getting worse when the 3 discover a manically afraid woman outside the house, a woman so convinced So-hee is a killer and who will take Seok-ho, In-jeong away. Confused In-jeong gets so scared she runs out of the house seeing two moons in the sky. But the crazed woman then tries to kill both Seok-ho and In-jeong, with ‘no time’ slowly revealing a forgotten horror of the characters recent past. “Two Moons” is a variation on the ‘Grudge’ ghost horror format, and a little bit Silent Hill (spot the wheel chair). It as regular ghost horror clichés but is more offbeat and imaginative and builds up a strange tension as it progresses. Good eerie effects and very youth orientated, too, with Han-byul and chums.
