This Korean 'Hitcher' may lack Rutger Hauer but it still has style and if the, admittedly disturbing, first half strikes one as fairly mild watch out for the bone crunchingly wild last 40 minutes or so, which are so, over the top.
If as seems possible, Hong Kong is having to reign in some of it's cinematic excesses under pressure from their new bosses on the mainland, then this little domain seems keen to take over in the torturous, gut wrenching and bloody stakes.
Not overly original but tough indeed and some really nasty stuff. So, why not say yes to this little seen film?
