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.

Had to nope out of this movie for a day or two after the dog, but it's such a great movie. Korean horror movies have this incredible way of combining multiple genres into one film, like, for example, Train to Busan (which is another incredible movie). The use of silence in the "calm" pieces of the movie, juxtaposed with the jumpy, shaky, almost rabid shots in other parts make this an incredibly tense movie all the way through. I love it, and will forever recommend this movie true horror fans.
