Product Description

A year after Shin Hynn (Seung-woo Cho), a brilliant psychopath, turned himself in for murdering six young girls, a copycat has begun to replay the surreal nightmare. With Shin providing cryptic riddles instead of answers as he sits on death row, Detective Kim (Jung-ah Yum; A Tale of Two Sisters), still grieving the loss of her partner who committed suicide over the original crimes, and her brash young partner, Kang (Jin-hee Ji), must find the killer before he completes his demented masterpiece.

4.0 out of 5 stars H October 26, 2010
Format:DVD
H is one of the strongest thrillers to come out of Korea since Park Chan Wook's VENGEANCE trilogy. While it has taken obvious ques from key American influences such as THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, it is not just another cheap imitation. The film follows detectives Kang and Kim as they track down a copycat killer that has been murdering women using the same patterns as a man that they have already imprisoned. With the next murder only days away, they must confide in the sadistic Shin Hyun in order to find out the identity of the new killer before it is too late. Director Jong-hyuk Lee combines a smart script with a clean shooting style to produce a fast-paced and suspenseful crime drama that is built on a pair of excellent performances by Jin-hee Ji and Jung-ah Yum as the two cunning detectives. Their performances are equaled by the calm and calculating Shin Hyun, played by a convincing Seung-woo Cho. Lee takes extra care in establishing his characters and constructing the mystery behind the murders, but none of the clues that are dropped throughout the film give any indication of the killer's true identity. This makes the reveal in the end feel both convenient and contrived. Outside of this unfortunate misstep, H is a top-rate psychological thriller with a winning cast and many bloody murders.

4.0 out of 5 stars What's not to like. July 25, 2006
Format:DVD
Do not listen to the bad review because they are wrong. This is just like the cover ad says "It's Se7en meets Silence of the Lambs." I think the graphic violence in this films reaches the level of seven so if you did not like seven because of its graphic nature then skip this film. But if you have the stomach to see it then this is the thriller of the year and you should see it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cruelly killing for the sake of life's nobility June 3, 2007
Format:DVD
Two young women are found brutally murdered, one in a landfill, the other on a bus. Both were pregnant, with one infant still wriggling inside his dead mother's stomach.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hypnotic Korean Psychological Thriller August 25, 2006
Format:DVD
I have never been one of those viewers who are into serial killer films. I find most of them sickening and quite a few have a bit more gore than I like in my films--and not enough suspense. There are the few exceptions: And one of these is the South Korean thriller "H". However, this film does have a high level of gruesome scenes depicted. Therefore, as a word of caution, be warned that this is an extremely violent film. Moreover, the plot is not what you would find in your usual American style of thriller. But it does have an interesting and suspenseful twist that I happened to think worked extremely well in this film. Having written this; I would recommend that viewers rent the film first, as it may not appeal to the majority of viewers out there.

The films narrative begins with a recently discovered body of a murder victim in a landfill, while another body has been found on a bus. Moreover, these murders resemble the killings of a sociopath who is awaiting the death penalty for similar killings. Is he the killer? Is the true killer still out there? Or is it a copycat killer? Shin Hyun (Seung-woo Cho) gives a great performance [as usual] as the killer awaiting his death sentence. Shin turned himself into the police ten months ago after murdering six women, and was sentenced to death after being found guilty. However, with these latest killings resembling Shin Hyun's, two detectives are called in to investigate if Shin Hyun is the real killer. He confessed to the killings, and everyone believes he is guilty. Is he? Or is there more to the killings than we are led to believe? These latest detectives brought in are to get to the bottom of things. Kim Mi Yun (Jung-ah Yum) is somewhat aloof and disconnected with those around her.
