Extremely suspenseful without having that gruesome violence of its kind !!
16 February 2012 | by (Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

Korean movies are constantly gaining popularity among the cinema lovers in recent times especially if you talk about brutal crime thrillers. Korean thrillers have their popularity for being weird, gruesome, violent but astonishingly natural at the same time. Midnight FM is another addition in that genre. I have watched so many Korean thrillers in recent times which are filled with extreme graphic violence and bloods, but Midnight FM seemed to be an exception. O course, bloods and killings are still there, but you will never feel disturbed or stomach cramp while watching this one, rather pure suspense will keep your neck high all the time.

Apart from some other awesome Korean thrillers like The Chaser, I saw the Devil or The Yellow Sea, I can compare this one with the recent release Children…(2011) for relying on pure suspense instead of extreme violence or blood. I thoroughly enjoyed this one, even though I didn't have that much expectation. A must see for all Korean thriller lovers.
