The Wailing

The Wailing ★★★★

Unlike a lot of Korean horror I've seen, where the whimsical mood and grim subject matter intertwine throughout, this one is heavy on the slapstick in the first hour, and then the joy slowly bleeds out as circumstances become more and more dire. I will not pretend to have understood all of it, but the tone of rural despair and terror of globalization are captivating.

Cf. Thirst
