Horror NR. Seeking the much-desired quality of ul-jjang (the Perfect Face), 17-year-old Hyunsu’s friends are envious that her mother is a plastic surgeon. But on their summer vacation together, Hyunsu watches as her friends get plastic surgery and then one by one begin to die mysterious deaths. She knows her mother holds the key to the dark secrets that have been tucked away, but does she dare uncover the ugly truth. Bong Man-Dae's Cinderella doesn't have glass slippers or a fairy godmother, in fact it couldn't be more different as this Cinderella delivers scares. From the opening scene the film grabs you and demands your attention with it's occasional scares and long-hairs ghosts. The biggest problem I had with the movie was that around the halfway point it switch from horror to more a drama and I felt the film began to drag from there. If I were to go into details on plot it would ruin the film entirely so I will leave well enough alone. I rate this among other film's in it's genre, now don't get me wrong this is way better than most horror films released outta Hollywood but among it's competition coming out of Asia it falls abit short. This is still worth a watch and there is some good scares along the way as well as the usual creepy score and brilliant cinematography that we have all come to expect from Asian cinema. The DVD has the bonus features:
