"Eric Tsang's new career as a Korean police officer doesn't quit pan out but his spirits will not be broken even with a knife sticking out of his chest."

"11.12, PC Hitusen ylipitkä ja alkuun liikaa jarrutteleva, mutta muuten kiinnostava tarina poliisista ja kylässä leviävästä sairaudesta. Mystinen ilmapiiri ja juonenkäänteet toimivat, eikä näyttelyssäkään ole mitään vikaa."

"This starts out slowly but then gets better and better. I've been meaning to watch this again and with better understanding of the Korean mythology/lore (I read about it after seeing the film first time)."

"June 15th Director: Hong-jin Na Probably one of the best horror films I've ever seen. Extremely thought provoking as well."

"A long one but once it gets going it should be impossible for anyone to say that this isn't a wildly entertaining mystery/horror film. Will leave you questioning what is really going on even after finishing. Is a perfect example of a movie that needs to be watched more than once as the ending will almost certainly leave you with a "what the..." feeling. Ambiguous and perhaps jumbled but as a whole was quite a treat to watch."

"Like a horror novel you find impossible to put down, devouring every page, The Wailing is something of an epic for the genre. Starting off as a somewhat oddly humorous horror/comedy, the film eventually takes a turn and by the end is unsparing in its dread and emotionally draining. I was not expecting to be so shaken and overwhelmed when this was over. It's also an incredibly well-crafted film, thick with an ever oppressing atmosphere, genuine surprise, startling tension and developments that I "

You're welcome! Glad you enjoyed it. We're agreed that it has some moments where you realize it's running long...regardless overall the excellence of the film makes up for that.
