The Ghost Station Blu Ray Review (Well Go USA)
The Ghost Station (aKa Ogsuyeog gwisin) is 2022 supernatural horror film co-written and directed by Yong-ki Jeong (The Doll Master, Marrying the Mafia franchise, Once a upon a Time, Couples, and Return of the Mafia). It was co-written by Horang and Soyoung Lee (Apt, Robot Sound, and Wishing Stairs). After a young reporter (played by: Bo-ra Kim from Ghost Mansion, SF8, Touch, Avengers Social Club, and SKY Castle) covers a suspicious accident, she learns from police that her source was supposedly already dead at the time of their interview. As more mysterious deaths occur, she and her partner dig deeper into the case and come face to face with a horrifying truth!!!! The Ghost Station pays homage to previous J-Horror features. That’s one of the best things about the low budget horror movie. The screenplay and plot are a little messy here but it’s still interesting to explore. Bo-ra Kim is a solid lead here. The supporting cast includes Jae Hyun Kim, Shin So-yul, Oh Jin-Seok, and Kang-il Kim. Everyone is pretty good in this, they try their best to make up for it’s flaws. It has a heavy Ringu influence to it. They try some unique cinematography and shots to change it up which makes it stand out a little more. The finale feels a little rushed, I think it could have been done better but I don’t hate it. The Ghost Station is just average but it’s not a total waste of time. It does have it’s moments every once in awhile. Just go into this one with an open mind. Let’s discuss this high definition presentation from Well Go USA! This 1080p (2.39:1) transfer looks bigger and better than what it low budget implies. It’s creative cinematography, locations, and production design elevate it’s overall look. It has a few different audio options which includes Korean: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Korean: Dolby Digital 2.0 on the disc. The dialogue is crystal clear, the scares are elevated, and the music has a killer boost to it. It has English subtitles since there’s no English dub on this home video release. Unfortunately, there’s no extras on the disc besides “Trailers”. It also comes with a slipcover. It’s available everywhere right now, CHECK IT OUT!!!!
