Fall Horrorfest 2018 (40 movies items)

" Watched October 31st Rating: Streamed on Netflix I didn't realize The Wailing was a horror film for a long time, even though I've seen it pop up on netflix for ages. I'm glad I finally saw someone mention it in relation to zombies, otherwise I might have skipped it over again. What a good movie! I love how some east Asian films there is a sense of humor and fun through even their most dramatic or horrific movies and this one had a lot of the same. It took its time to build itself up in a way"

"Na Hong-jin’s The Wailing is a work of thriller maximal-ism, thriving on genre crosspollination and tonal hyperbole, particularly a destabilizing contrast of broad comedy with ultraviolent portentousness. Na is an atmospheric reveler who sets the film’s narrative traps so gradually that we come to accept his increasingly insane plot as inevitable. He’s at once fashioned a hangout movie, luxuriating in the eccentricities of the story’s village locals, and a relentlessly precise and moment"

"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)."
