Storyline

A mysterious person calls a young man and informs him that his estranged father has died in a country village. The curious son travels to the town to discover what happened. From there out the audience is led on a thrilling and hauntingly atmospheric journey into the history of the father and the truth about his relationship to the threatening and violent locals. The film is 2h40m, long even for Korean standards, but it is the magically haunting and at the same time threatening atmosphere in the film that sustains the audience interest. Let yourself be carried away... Written by A Dutch fellow

Amazing Korean mystery/thriller with a very good build up
21 February 2011 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

I managed to see this Korean movie at AMC theater and despite the long running time it was well worth the time. The build up to this movie is very good and had my interest throughout the whole movie. In fact I was glued to the screen really wanting to know what is going on and it was very entertaining as the pieces of the puzzle started getting put together piece by piece. Even the characters constantly leads you to believe what is going on is something mind blowing. And although everything about this movie is very well done, the main disappointing part of this movie is the conclusion. Jeong Jae-Yeong is very good in this role and so is Heo Jun-Ho who is perfect for this role. Yoo-Sun's acting wasn't amazing or anything but I liked her presence in this. The plot about this movie is about a son visiting a village since his father died and finds strange things going on in the village a certain mystery. And the more he digs into what is going on the more dangerous the situation becomes for him. Like I said this movie was way longer than I expected, but I don't have any complaints about that since I found the story to keep getting intriguing as it progressed. This film is based on a Korean internet comic and although I haven't read the comic I can tell it stayed faithful to the comic or probably even better than the comic itself. The flashbacks and switching between time-lines is done in a clever and fluid manner and doesn't get annoying or irritating while watching. This is a very good Korean mystery/thriller that should be seen at least once. Despite knowing the twist I wouldn't mind seeing it again.

8.1/10
