The Locker

I know that there has been a glut of Grudge and Ring lookalikes sweeping South East Asia, but I will recommend the ones that ‘work’. At least this is successfully scary. Though it does cheat on many occasions by pumping the volume up suddenly, or using bone-crunching sound effects, when onscreen there is little or no evidence of any such damage.
Also, towards the end of the second film, you see a little too much of the ghost for it to be scary – it looks exactly like what it is – a little girl in a wig of long black hair! But for the most part, the acting, story and scares are convincing, with some original twists along the way.

As three couples go camping, telling ghost stories to frighten each other, a sacred statue has its head ripped off (which I'm noticing more and more as a plot device in these supernatural revenge stories).

After the group returns to the city, baby handprints start appearing around them, and they start hearing (really loud) unnerving baby cries which no one else can hear. When the haunting peaks, they die violently by unseen hands.

The damaged statue was part of a shrine dedicated to aborted babies, and there’s the rub. The six sexually-liberated students are being haunted by a rather strict ghost of ‘sex before marriage’. But after they repair the statue, the hauntings continue and the plot thickens…
