The Wailing

The Wailing

Directed by Na Hong Jin

In this unbelievably tense supernatural thriller, a foreigner’s mysterious appearance in a quiet, rural village causes suspicion among the locals - suspicion which quickly turns to hysteria as the townspeople begin killing each other in brutal outbursts for seemingly no reason. As the investigating officer watches his daughter fall under the same savage spell, he agrees to consult a shaman for answers - unknowingly escalating the situation into something far more dangerous.

Loved it! A bit on the slow side and definitely a thriller wouldn't recommend if you're looking for a horror movie.

Atmospheric movie with great suspense and take on cultural beliefs (spiritual intervention/family dynamic/ othering).

First off, I want to say that this is an amazing movie. It had a lot more comedic moments than what I thought there would be, but it wasn’t overbearing. The ending is kinda downer but I expected that from a movie like this. Did not realize the length when I first watched it, so I stayed up until 5 o’clock in the morning watching it. Would recommend.
