24 December 2017 | by phanthingaSee all my reviews

Confession of Murder 2017 is a crime,thriller movie remake from a South Korean movie with the same name about a book written by a serial killer exposed his past crime that raise a lot of attention not only from the cop but also from the media about whenever it real or fake.As a guy who already watched the original i think the remake do it justice while adding more stuff here and there make it very interesting when comparing to the original.If you like this movie please watch the original first for a more impactful twist
