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.

It was really good but there’s too many unexplained things that aren’t like “open for interpretation” type of unexplained they were more like unexplained for no reason and could have been better explained within the 3 hrs of movie I just watched. But overall good I liked the twist at the end
i know im in minority here, but i found the film very tedious and uninteresting. it's well made and the acting is great, but it simply never captured my attention, even with the oft-cited twists and turns
It was so good! Loved the atmosphere and the mystery, WHO IS RIGHT, WHO IS WRONG, is there a twist?? Ugh, it lives up to its 5 skull review, Korean horror is so good and honestly I'm glad at least in the States we are getting more exposure to other nation's horror and story telling.
I loved it long film but entertaining it throws a few curve balls here & there..
