    Just watched this one this afternoon. Very good nice and creepy - the story isnt exactly original similar to Deathwatch and many other Horror War movies. But it is creepy as hell and nicely acted. As for the dvd box set i got from cdwow - excellent packaging with a nice fold out digi pack with full colour images, booklet with loads more info and pics, postcards, map of the R point area. 2 dvd set sadly (as usual) the 2nd dvd with all the extras has no Eng subs. As for the movie dvd the Eng subs are very clear and easy to read. Picture quality is superb and the DTS track really adds to the chills.
    Its well worth a purchase if you are into scary movies and or asian movies.

    Review of the movie Here

    Three of the best films I've seen this year have been Korean;

    Oldboy
    A Tale of Two Sisters
    Taegukgi ("Brotherhood")

    Some sort of cinematic renaissance going on it that country. Keep it coming I say!

    OMG, Oldboy is superb. Totally not what I was expecting. Don't think for a second that its a "gangster" film, it's really a story about revenge, being served ICE :censored: COLD!

    The story is a bit hard to follow in places though. The poor subtitling doesn't help either.

    I really don't want to spoil it for you because you'll have it soon enough :smashin:

    Brotherhood is up there with Platoon, FMJ, Das Boot & SPR in war-film terms. Big-budget, big explosions, big emotional impact.

    Two sisters has loads of superb twists in the story and is suitable horrific ;). Maybe a bit too shining/sixth sensey for some, but I loved it. There's something eminently more satisfying about watching girls/women running around terrified, as opposed to blokes! I guess that's why the main characters in horror films are female; scream, I know what you did, ring, grudge, halloween etc. etc. - I could go on

    Another vote for A Tale of Two Sisters. :thumbsup:

    I got this for about £6 from CD-WOW and for that price it's a steal. The DTS soundtrack really creates a lot of atmosphere and there's some great use of the rears. When the wife starts hiding behind the cushion, you know you're onto a winner!

    I'll have to pick up R-Point too.

    Hi Captaineyepatch.

    Sorry for a rookie question, but I can't find R-Point on CD-Wow...in my defence their search engine isn't the best! Any chance you can help me out with a link?

    Looks like Cdwow are sold out at the moment - thats why you cant find it.
    Keep checking though as they do get new stock in - you could also email them and ask when they are getting more in.
