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 loved this movie. It had me second guessing myself through the entire thing. Everything looked pretty realistic from the gore to the way people reacted to what was happening around them. I’d recommend this to anyone as long as you don’t mind reading subtitles!

Beautiful and haunting! This is such a work of art and I really enjoyed the different perspectives on religion and faith. Would highly recommend for folks who can appreciate a well-thought out plot that will leave you feeling empty and impacted long after the movie is over.
