July 7, 2017 @ 6:45 pm
First Frightdays is a monthly horror showcase of the best new and old horror and suspense films on the first Friday of each month.
“Ji-woon Kim may be the Korean David Lynch.” – Detroit News
“A tour de force of psychological horror at its creepiest.” – Los Angeles Times
“Masterfully manipulative and bloody scary.” – Empire
This supernatural horror film from Kim Jee-woon is inspired by the ancient Korean folktale “Jangha and Hongryun.” Set in an isolated lakeside house, it begins with two young girls, Su-mi (Im Su-jung) and Su-yeon (Mun Geun-yeong), returning home after a period of hospitalization following the death of their mother. In the meantime, their father Mu-Hyun (Kim Gab-su) has married Eun-joo (Yeom Jeong-ah), whom the girls obviously despise. Strange, violent visions begin to disturb Su-mi and she becomes convinced that Eun-joo is keeping a dark secret from the family.
Dir. Kim Jee-woon. 2003. 115 min.
