When the final son dies, his pregnant widow, Ok-bun, must face vicious family politics and the vengeful spirit descending on the household. A remake of 1986 Korean horror essential, Woman’s Wail, The Wrath is elegant horror with funhouse chills. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL.

Cast: Hong-il Choi, Young hee Seo, Na-Eun Son
If you're like me and have watched one too many Christian exorcism films, then a ghost story set in mediaeval Buddhist Korea is going to be pretty fresh. I liked the power rivalry among the living at the same time as a mystery storyline for the dead. Cinematography, colour palette, costumes and period pieces were all stunning.
I don't know why this movie has below a 4 skull rating from people. It was an entertaining film and overall had a creepy slow vibe to it.
bit of a let down, not as good as the trailer was making it out to be
Disappointing film. The cinematography was great but the pacing was slow. The story was lacking.
