ANGELIKA’S NOTE

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. 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 Cannes Film Festival, smashed box office records upon its debut in South Korea, where fans were quick to visit the theater more than once to catch new clues and debate the film that became one of 2016's most talked-about. Rated a near-perfect 99% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, The Playlist called THE WAILING "deliciously entertaining. You'll be left breathless."
