Storyline

Juno, formerly a bank employee, gets a call on his first day at work from a woman seeking advice. She asks if insurance is paid out on suicides, and only after hanging up does he see the warning on the insurance agreement. A few days Juno receives a request for a meeting with an unknown policy holder. From the living room of a decrepit house Juno opens the door to the bedroom to see a seven-year-old hanging from the ceiling. Police start an investigation, but the autopsy and all the evidence points to suicide. But Juno can't shake his suspicions that the incident was actually a murder. Believing that insurance, which should protect lives, cannot be seen to promote murder, he withholds payment. There is evidence of other serial murders, and a secret lying inside company records in storage. Where is the truth? And what is the true nature of the Black House? Written by CJ Entertainment

Engaging Serial Killer Slasher Film With A Touch Of Dark Humour
20 October 2017 | by meddlecoreSee all my reviews

An insurance claims adjuster is sent to meet a man, his company believes is a con artist, engaged in insurance fraud.

And during this meeting he makes a grisly discovery...the body of a young boy who has recently been hung.

Despite the fact that he is not his actual son...the man has a very large insurance policy out on the boy's life. And he has the claim written up before his ashes are even spread.

This leads the insurance adjuster to suspect the man has murdered the boy...so he starts to investigate this man and his past.

With the insurance company refusing to pay out- before the police make a decision on the cause of death- the man becomes increasingly disgruntled...and starts to target the insurance adjuster.

They eventually pay him out, but the adjuster becomes worried his wife will be next...because he also has a large policy out on her, as well.

He feels particularly responsible, because, as a child, he witnessed his younger brother commit suicide...and still feels guilty for having failed to prevent it.

So he acts to intervene- warning the woman of what he suspects her husband's intentions are.

But a few days later, the couple is back...to collect on another claim...after the man has cut off both his arms.

Now, the adjuster realizes...it was his psychopath wife the whole time.

But it's too late...his brother is dead, his girlfriend's dog has had it's head cut off, and his girlfriend has suddenly been kidnapped.

Obviously, this woman is not one to be trifled with.

This is a really engaging serial killer-slasher, from South Korea's Terra Shin. The insurance claims adjuster is such a lovable anti-hero...that you just don't expect him to be caught up in a gore-laden situation. But that is what gives this film that subtle touch of dark humour that makes it so damn enjoyable.

Recommended.

6.5 out of 10.
