Telegraph writes: "What is it about ghostly little Asian schoolgirls that terrifies horror fans? Granted, films such as R-Point, The Ring and Dark Water have all used menacing waiflike children to great effect. But as the Hollywood remakes of the latter two J-horror classics have clearly shown, it isn't enough in itself to have a female urchin with bedraggled-looking hair and jet-black eyes to guarantee a terrified audience. I present F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin as Exhibit A in this case."
