This film was heart breaking to watch yet entertaining because of the amazing acting by the two leading ladies who play childhood friends Bok-nam and Hae-won,Hae-won Going on to a live a nice cozy life and Bok-nam whom is thrust into a horror filled life .
Hae-won moved to Seoul leaving Bok-Nam on the island, after several letters and calls from Bok-Nam,Hae-won finally decides to go visit her on the island and the two continue where they left off which wasn't always nice.It's a revenge fueled no holds barred Asian horror/thriller that doesn't involve ghosts but real circumstances that happen to more people than we can ever know.The films depiction makes us believe that it exists within this film and in real life as well.
It has some good gore scenes but isn't anywhere near as gory as many other Asian horror films although bloody and incredibly Violent but they give us enough for it to be very effective.You will think about this film long after you finish watching it.I watched it twice because I wanted to make sure I understood every aspect,the second viewing was more personal than the first.
Hae-won is a young and stressed woman due to her job and a crime she witnessed. When she finally explodes at work her boss makes her take a vacation at which time she decides its best to get away. She takes a trip to where she grew up, Moodo Island, where she reconnects with her childhood friend Bok-nam who has a daughter of her own. As she settles in she notices that Bok-nam is treated like a slave by the whole community and is mistreated daily by her abusive boyfriend Man-Jong but yet never comes to her aid. One day Bok-nam tries to escape with her daughter only to get caught by Man-Jong.
In a violent struggle Bok-nams daughter is accidentally killed by Man-Jong prompting the community to cover up what really happened when an investigator is called in. Bok-nam finally losing her last straw, goes on a murderous rampage to exact revenge on those that have done her wrong and the people responsible for the death of her daughter, including her childhood friend Hae-won.
I absolutely loved this film. It shows how one person can be pushed around their whole life and finally snap when the one thing they loved the most is taken away from them. It tests the bonds of friendship and takes betrayal to a different level. It is a very violent and some what gory film that will suck you in and have you rooting for this poor abused woman as she cuts her way through this abusive community.
I really can't say anything bad about "Bedevilled" at all and recommend you pick up a copy and enjoy this South Korean masterpiece.
Hae-won has no where to go on her vacation so she decides to visit the island where her Grandfather lived and where she spent part of her childhood. The island is isolated from the mainland and the community there holds their fare share of secrets. When Hae-won arrives at the island she is visited by her childhood friend Bok-nam. The two girls were once very close but over time drifted apart. Mostly this was forced by Hae-won who never bother to read the letter Bok-nam sent her. On the island Hae-won spends her time learning about how much has changed over time little by little. Bok-nam is a kind hearted woman but is treated like dirt and looked down on by the entire community. They refer to her as "b#@ch" and or "stupid b#@ch", and make her do the bulk of the labor on the island.Read more ›
