I always enjoy a good insane horror film, and it looks like this South Korean film The Wailing will give us something nightmarishly creepy and unsettling. The movie was directed by Na Hong-jin, and the story focuses on a mysterious evil supernatural force that invades a small village and terrorizes it. We have a trailer for you to watch today that teases the wicked madness that the film entails.
In this unbelievably tense supernatural thriller, a foreigner’s mysterious appearance in a quiet, rural village causes suspicion among the locals — suspicion which quickly turns to hysteria as the townspeople begin killing each other in brutal outbursts for seemingly no reason. As the investigating officer watches his daughter fall under the same savage spell, he agrees to consult a shaman for answers — unknowingly escalating the situation into something far more dangerous.
Over six years in the making, director Na Hong-jin’s meticulously crafted follow-up to the globally acclaimed THE YELLOW SEA and THE CHASER (his third to premiere at the Festival de Cannes) smashed box office records upon its debut in South Korea, where fans are already making return viewings to catch new clues and debate what’s sure to be the most talked-about ending of 2016.
The Wailing gets a limited theatrical release starting today, June 3rd. I've gotta find out where this film is playing because I want to see it! It stars Hwang Jung-Min, Chun Woo-Hee, Kwak Do-oni, and Jun Kunimura.
