I Like Horror Movies
Se7en Meets Silence of the Lambs! crows the cover art, obviously written for an American audience, that adorns this movie at Netflix. I read a review on IMDB from a person who mentions that overseas box art compares the film to Tellmisseomding. All of these comparisons have teeth, but as this movie progressed, I found myself thinking more and more of Kyua, Kiyoshi Kurosawa's immensely entertaining supernatural take on ...Lambs. H is not as good a movie as any of the above, but its problems are relatively minor and if you're looking for a fun locked-room murder mystery, this will fill the bill nicely.
Shin-hyun (Marathon's Seung-woo Cho), a serial killer, turns himself in and is locked up. Everything seems great...until a year later, when two recent crimes are uncovered that bear the marks of being Shin-hyun's work. The only problem is that he was in prison when they occurred. So the two detectives who were originally assigned to the case, Mi-yun Kim (Tellmisseomding's Jung-ah Yum) and Tae-hyun Kang (Perhaps Love's Jin-hee Ji in her first screen appearance), hit the bricks to see if they can figure out whether they've got a copycat on their hands, or whether Shin-hyun is masterminding what could be an entire network of serial killers from behind bars. Or whether the answer is something even weirder...
It's quite a slick little film that wears its influences on its sleeve maybe a little too much; it tries to make up for this by coming up with a bang-up plot twist, and for what it's worth, they did a good job at it.Read more ›
The homicide department's cops are called in, led by Detective Kim Mi Yun, who has a new partner, Kang Tae Hyun. Kang's a bit of a hothead, he's always late to the scene of the crime, and he seems a bit cocky at times. So he's a bit difficult to like. And he's especially impatient, wanting action now as opposed to waiting.
In contrast, Kim is an icy, unsmiling person, but at the same time, more logical. When Kang is frustrated that they are getting nowhere, she merely tells them she is going around, looking at the case from a different angle. When he tells her she is mean, she retorts that yes, she is mean, but at least not as emotional as he is.
There is a reason for Kim's harshness. The killings fit the same pattern as that of Shin Hyun, a psychopath who murdered six women in ten months before turning himself in. Shin Hyun's crimes was so traumatic to Kim's partner Han Jung-woo, he ended up killing himself. The agony was double due to the fact that Han and Kim were engaged.
So the question is, is this a copycat killing, or has Shin Hyun hired someone to duplicate his crimes? A meeting with Shin Hyun's psychologist, Dr. Chu Kyung-Sook is a dead end. She's more level-headed but aloof, refusing to cooperate due to patient confidentiality. It's a matter of professional conduct, but she flatly tells Kim and Kang, "My patient is more important to me than a victim I don't know." And when the pair later tail her, she merely gives them a superior smile, definitely not one to let them get her goat.Read more ›

H is not your typical serial-killer movie. While it does have loads of police procedural / cat-and mouse fun, it also has a nice X-FILES sort of vibe going on. Read morePublished on January 23, 2011 by Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein
