You cant go wrong by watching this movie
26 November 2017 | by smsx-39175See all my reviews

If you enjoy watching a good thriller with an unexpected plot that will keep you connected from beginning to the end, then "Insane" is a right to go choice. This South Korean movie is an intense journey into a conspiracy story with many twists that is enjoyable to watch thanks to the good acting and the solid story. The director keeps the suspense high developing a story that exposes an obscure story of revenge and personal interests, in which the main actress is taken against her will to a mental hospital.... More than a month after watching it, I still remember this movie thanks to all the details of the story and the unexpected end. Definitely a good recommendation for your next movie time.
