We’ll grant you it might not sound the most likely of premise to produce some good scares, but ‘Whispering Stairs’ director Yoon Jae Yeon’s latest horror Yoga School showed real promise on its release last year, and now you can own it on DVD. Exploring the dark side of the fanatical pursuit of beauty, Yoon assembled a bevy of Korean popular actresses as his stars, including Eugene, ‘Wishing Stairs' star Park Han Byul, ‘Forever the Moments’ Jo Eun Ji, and ‘Memento Moris’ Lee Yeong Jin. Babes in peril, trapped in a creepy house run by a mysterious, enigmatic and more than likely deranged nutcase. Ohhhh I think so. Yoga goes on sale Feb 23rd.
Synopsis: The Yoga School was the answer to their dreams. A perfectionist career woman who had been successful until she was outshined by a younger co-worker, a former popular actress who faded into obscurity, a girl battling weight issues, and a woman beset by numerous personal misfortunes including a divorce and a failed plastic surgery procedure. All of them have something in common: a belief that beauty will help them overcome the difficulties they face. They all are told to abide by several rules when they sign up for the yoga class. Cutting themselves off from the outside world for seven days of rigorous training, a period in which they are not allowed to see themselves in a mirror or eat without permission. But soon they discover that the quest for beauty, has a terrible price.
