    Excellent. Hong Jin-Na is on one hell of a streak.
    One of my favorite directors working today for sure.

    That was one hell of a ride, something of a combination of 'Moss' (2010), and 'Memories of Murder' (2003).

    Brilliant stuff.

    The runtime had me thinking twice but once I started it the time honestly flew by. It's engrossing, thrilling, terrifying and amazingly enough, comedic! You're going to think you know what you're watching but it will keep you guessing until the very end. Once the credits started rolling I felt thoroughly creeped out and immensely satisfied. It's kind of like you've been sitting out in the woods by the fire at night and someone's told you a very old and very eerie folktale - and, uh, they told it so well you kind of wish they hadn't at all. (Lastly....how did this one tale manage to cram like 9 horror movies into one film?? Definitely gonna seek out more from this director). 3 years 8 months ago
