Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum
Directed by Jung Bum-shik
Based on the local legends and stories of people who’ve visited the real-life abandoned hospital, GONJIAM: HAUNTED ASYLUM follows the crew of a horror web show who plan to stream live from inside the asylum. To attract more viewers, the show’s host arranges some scares for the team, but as they move further into the nightmarish old building, they begin to encounter much more than expected.
An internet broadcaster recruits a handful of people to appear on their 'experience the horror' show that will take place at the Gonjiam Mental Hospital, known as one of the world's 7 Horrorific Sites.
Cast: Hyun-bin, Yoo Ji-tae, Bae Sung-woo, Park Sung-woong
I don't always review films on Shudder, but when I do I give 5 out of 5!
Genuinely creepy, korean horror cinema at its FINEST
Great movie. BUT Why do producers insist on using white text in closed captioning? It's great if the subject is a dark room or at night. But if it's winter and snow or in a brightly lit room it's just painful to watch / read. MY personal preference is green text on an transparent black background. NOW BACK to the review: Enjoyable and suspenseful.
actually creepy/suspenseful af. I'm impressed.
