Storyline

Veteran detective Sang-gil and beat cop Eun-yeong are in charge of a case that seems to involve a simple act of self-immolation. Sang-gil initially thinks that it was an accident, but dog bite marks discovered on the body lead him to believe that someone had terrorized and murdered the victim. He and Eun-yeong investigate the source of the drugs found in the body and discover the victim had been pimping out young girls. At the same time, another murder involving a wolf-dog crossbreed occurs The two cases are labeled serial killings. With a connection between the victims uncovered, Sang-gil and Eun-yeong track down a potential witness. While questioning her, one of the mysterious dogs strikes out of the blue, killing the witness and stunning the cops. Written by CJ Entertainment

Not bad as the rating suggests.
23 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is not a horror or a supernatural movie that the title or poster may imply.

This movie is actually a cop thriller that many of us like to see with some intense scenes and it stars in my opinion one of Korea's best actors "Song Kang-Ho" (Memories of Murder) who plays the role of the not so straight cop with family issues.

Detective Sang-Gil played by Song Kang-Ho is being assigned to solve what appears to be a small suicide case and to train the new unwelcomed lady recruit Eun-Young (Lee Na-Young) to which he refuses. Being bitter because he was passed over for a promotion to another colleague, the detective reluctantly agrees, while his new colleague is being treated differently by her very sexist colleagues.

During the course of the movie the new partners discover that a string of murders could be connected and they wonder if the murders are justified and intentional or not, while trying to overcome work and family problems.

The lead star gives a good believable performance along with decent performances from supporting actors.

The film has a good original story on hand that may have fell a bit short due to a mix of directing, writing and probably length of the movie? Otherwise this is a good movie that could have been a powerful thriller.
