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.

I really enjoyed this flick. Don't let the length of the film fool you. On another note: I wish Shudder would let the end credits roll and give credit where credit was due. C'mon, Shudder. Put some respeck on people's names.

This is my favorite kind of movie- paranormal and creepy enough to actually scare me in the middle of the night. I think the acting was great and the plot twists left me wondering. I’m still a bit confused by the ending but great movie nonetheless.

I really enjoyed the movie, even with the subtitles (2.5 hours of reading is a lot). 4 skulls because I didn’t really understand the end and there are a few plot holes. I would recommend watching!
