Reviews [click links to read more]:

“The female dynamic of the movie is one of its strengths, with Lee Yuha making the biggest impression as a flawless face-changer with her own problems hidden deep beneath that smile. Everyone else is decent […] At 81 mins it doesn’t out stay its welcome and sustains an atmosphere with the style and efficiency expected from its grim but elegant subject matter.” The Hollywood News

“It’s a mosaic mystery, with its backstory jumbled and told out of order – so audiences have to pay close attention and piece it together themselves […] It shifts into Audition territory with a sustained, gruesome finale in which (it’s no spoiler) faces are sliced and old wounds reopened with arterial sprays and high-style ranting performances.” The Kim Newman Web Site

Ghost Mask – Scar is an absolutely remarkable movie. The concept was impeccable, the story was original and timely and the unpredictability was brilliant […] There was love, drama, mystery, horror, and suspense thriller all together in this movie, something you would not expect at first.” Utah Film Festival and Awards
