Priesthood
27 April 2017 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Every movie that has exorcisms in it, has the "problem" that it will be compared with The Exorcist. There's no way around it, but if you can try to keep an open mind. I don't know if this is actually the very first South Korean exorcism film or not. What I do know though, is the quality is very high.

The acting, the set up and the scenes are very powerful. This can stand on its own, which is quite impressive. The horror that you get is quite impressive, especially if you consider that we have seen a lot of movies trying this. Cinematography and script are really good and I can recommend this, if you like horror movies
