Critic Reviews of "A Tale of Two Sisters"Noel Murray AV ClubSeptember 26, 2005
The film feels haunted by the relationship between Im and Moon, who cling to each other in the face of a hostile hostess, even though that may not be their best option.Renee Graham Boston GlobeFebruary 25, 2005
There's a reason why Hollywood has been so busy in recent years remaking Asian horror movies. Scare for scare, they're generally better.Jennie Punter Globe and MailJanuary 30, 2005
It may not be a pretty picture, but A Tale of Two Sisters is definitely a satisfying piece of less-is-more cinematic horror.John Terauds Toronto StarJanuary 28, 2005
The gorgeous slow-moving cinematography by Lee Mogae is remarkable.Jeff Shannon Seattle TimesJanuary 07, 2005
The film seems unnecessarily vague on a rational level, but it's spot-on as a psychological study of a twinlike sibling relationship, and the ways in which memory can suppress trauma and soothe a mourning soul.Josh Larsen LarsenOnFilmNovember 14, 2013
How much you appreciate the film will largely depend on how effective you feel its big revelation is.Jeff Meyers Metro Times (Detroit, MI)April 20, 2011
...boasts a suffocating atmosphere and a disjointed storyline that turns the screws on your nerves while leaving you to puzzle over the plotFelix Vasquez Jr. Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
It's truly a masterpiece in the end.Maitland McDonagh Miss FlickChickMarch 01, 2009
Kim Ji-woon's psychological skin-chiller painstakingly teases apart the traumas that bind a widower, his teen daughters... and his high-strung second wife in a suffocating web of guilt, suspicion and fear. The American remake, The Uninvited (2009), palesSteve Biodrowski ESplatterJuly 09, 2008
Kim Jee-Woon's serious approach has its merits, but it also creates some problems that mar, without ruining, the film's effectiveness.Daniel Etherington Film4September 26, 2007
A very tasty exercise in supernatural and psychological horror.
