painfully predictable

Granted, I had different expectations when I began watching this - the description I'd read here used words like "slasher fest" and "truly terrifying." I was in the mood for some serious Asian horror and I found it neither terrifying, nor all that slasher fest-y. (In fact, other than blood and one bit at the end, it really avoided being graphic or too gorey.)

Regardless, I'm not an expert on Asian horror, but I am a huge fan and I found this movie to be tediously predictable. Even as a psychological thriller, I found it sorely lacking and it didn't really push any buttons. I knew what was coming around every turn. I also had a hard time understanding how what was happening in the present related that strongly to the main characters past, as well. It was a loose, temporary connection.

Then there's the main characters immovable belief in humanity... laughable.

Painfully boring. And painfully disappointing.
