South Korea delves into the exorcism genre...
11 November 2016 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

When I saw that there was an exorcism-themed movie out from South Korea, I was more than hooked. I didn't know who had directed it or even who starred in it. I do like Asian cinema quite a lot, and South Korean movies tend to be quite good.

And such was also the case with "The Priests" (aka "Geomeun sajedeul"). While it does have a story that has been seen countless of times before in other similar movies, then director Jae-Hyun Jang still managed to keep the movie interesting and entertaining.

Little needs to be said about the story here; a young girl is possessed by a demonic entity, and it is up to two priests to perform an exorcism, banish the demonic entity and thus saving the life of the young girl.

It is the way that the movie is built up that works quite well, because we get to discover things about the priests along the way, showing that they are but humans as well, and then slowly, but surely, director Jae-Hyun Jang guides the audience towards the exorcism itself.

It strikes me as a movie that didn't have the biggest of budgets, but still they managed to utilize everything to the fullest potential and come up with a rather impressive and entertaining movie nonetheless.

And while the movie is not boasting a myriad of CGI and special effects that would put Hollywood to shame, the special effects crew did manage to make the necessary effects seem good and come off as being realistic. A feat which really added depth to the movie.

The acting in the movie was good as well. Although I can't really claim to be familiar with the talents who were acting in this 2015 movie.

While "The Priests" is not a groundbreaking movie to make it out of South Korea, it is still an entertaining movie that is well-worth watching. My rating of "The Priests" is a solid six out of ten stars easily.
