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.

At first it was like Clouseau vs the walking dead; I thought it was going to be comedic. But, the mood completely changed to intense creepiness. I really enjoyed it; however, the character backgrounds weren’t really well developed. It was a little confusing to follow. The acting was great.

Excellent! A great example of what a good horror movie can be. Something that actually makes you think. I love that they let the audience decide who is the bad guy and makes you question yourself and your beliefs. A true diamond of the genre. wont spoil it watch it for yourself.
