Thematic. Brutal. Chilling.
A small village in Korea falls victim to an inexplicable plague that causes its victims to lash out in violence at around the same time a mysterious stranger comes to town. Is this stranger behind it all? A cop seeks the answer as the disease spreads to his daughter. Like many great Korean dramas, this film takes its genre trappings and spins a thoroughly original and memorable yarn. The Wailing is one of the best horror thrillers in recent memory.
