Facial Deconstruction...
24 September 2020 | by azathothpwigginsSee all my reviews

A killer is kidnapping, mutilating, and melting young women. The police are baffled. Forensic sculptor Hyeon-Min (Hyeon-Jun Shin) is expected to add a face to the skull of the latest victim.

The trouble is that Hyeon-Min has had enough. With his wife dead, and his daughter in the hospital, he just wants to retire. Unfortunately for him, his latest partner won't stop pushing him. Then, there's also the ghost that haunts Hyeon-Min, and the nightmares, and the strange sounds in his head!

FACE is another wonderfully creepy ghost story from South Korea. It's filled with mystery, suspense, and supernatural terror. Highly recommended...
