I really love asian movies, but I had a very hard time appreciating this one. They could have shaved an hour off this. All of us as teenagers question our identity, even as adults. However, these kids were unrelatable. These kids are not victims. They were not abducted. They wanted this and became sociopathic monsters.

I accidentally published my review before I finished! But this isn't a horror movie & it seems like Suicide Circle was so I could see disappointment if you watched that one first. It was a twisted coming of age story first & foremost. Definitely an art film like Dogtooth or Sweet Movie. I really hope that shudder will continue to add films by this director:)
