Review 0.0 Mhz (2019): Incredibly bad!

genre: horror, mystery

Usually long haired Asian women creep me out. Not in this one! This is just one of the many flaws this film has.

Where to start? First of all the characters were unlikable. Especially the female ones. Yoon-young Choi as Yoon-Jung for example plays a quirky girl who is one of the members of the 0.0 Mhz club. When first introduced you go along with the fact that they are having fun and playing around. But at one point when they are all set up at the haunted place she pranks the others by pretending she has been possessed. Why are you even part of such a club if you don't take these things seriously? I mean I get it if you don't but I assume the others do so it is very disrespectful and downright stupid. Even if you don't believe in ghosts and supernatural phenomenon you can be a little more cautious and respectful. 

Eun-ji Jung as So-Hee also got on my nerves. She seems to be the silent and shy type who is more aware of things than she is letting on. But never truly tells the others that she has seen stuff. Nor does she warn them. It's things like these that annoy the hell out of me. I get it that the plot demands it that characters act a certain way. But at least come up with something interesting or compelling to have a character like this be silent. Very briefly her mother remarks that she has no clue what is going on with her daughter. You can interpret this in many ways. Obviously many parents feel like this so I didn't think too much of it. Perhaps I am giving this girl too much credit and she just is a very bad actress which wouldn't be that surprising since she is part of girlband Apink and this is her debut. If I had known this beforehand I probably wouldn't even have bothered with watching this film.

There is no sense of terror or dread whatsoever. Sure there were moments that almost looked like they were going to be scary and terrifying. Unfortunately no such luck. The bad editing and even worse CGI effects ruined most of these moments. It's not really clear to me why they had resorted to CGI in the first place. The ones I just described would have been cheaper and far more effective had they been practical. Although it could also be that they wanted to resemble the comic this is based on. Obviously that doesn't work if the rest is filmed in a realistic style.

In the end this film fails to scare or shock even once. So don't bother with this one, it's going to be a giant waste of your time. 

Special note: Premise wise it feels very similar to Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum but at least that one delivers on the fright and dread. So I suggest you go watch that one instead.
