An obscure brilliant film, but not recommended for the faint of heart.
Yoon Jong-chan's masterful first feature film is a vision into the "heart of darkness" which relies on brilliant acting, cinematography and directing-- not gratuitous gore-- to tell a disturbing psychological horror story which hints at the supernatural.
The beautiful and painterly visuals transform a drab tenement into a hallucinatory house of horrors without ANY special effects, cliché jump cuts, or loud sound effects.
One of the best films I've seen in years. Left me thinking and questioning reality long after the film ended.
Check it out-- if you can find it.
