Product Description

Sung-soo has everything: a beautiful wife and children, a comfortable home and luxury car, and plenty of money in the bank. When he learns that his estranged brother has gone missing, he visits his apartment in search of answers. Unsettled by the shabby, half-empty apartment complex, he quickly notices strange symbols inscribed under the doorbells and the terrified residents who hurriedly lock their doors at the sight of an outsider. The disturbing visit follows Sung-soo and his family home, as they soon find themselves stalked by a mysterious masked figure, and the same strange symbols appear under their doorbell. With his own nightmares escalating out of control, Sung-soo must face his most primal fears to reveal the shocking truth behind the intensifying horror.

The South Korean hit "Hide and Seek" is a remarkably effective first time feature by writer/director Huh Jung. In the realm of International cinema, South Korea continues to provide some of the grittiest and most unpleasant thrillers imaginable. While this might sound like dubious praise, I mean it as the highest compliment. So many films from the American studio system fail to take significant chances and, therefore, leave me rather uninspired. I like when a thriller (or any film, for that matter), isn't afraid to push buttons and take you to the edge of reason. Among some of my favorites from South Korea, I'd include Oldboy, The Chaser, and I Saw The Devil, but I could list dozens of recent imports similarly worth your time and effort (I'm also an absolute nut for the comedy/horror monster mash-up The Host, but that's another genre entirely). While I don't necessarily feel that "Hide and Seek" is a new classic at the level of these examples, it does provide the requisite chills to make it worthy of viewing. It starts as a supremely creepy mystery, but then morphs into a rather preposterous (but well done) battle for survival. It isn't the most original plot, to be sure, but the genuine dread and uncertainty conveyed in the film's first half sets a really strong tone.

The movie narration begins with a nod to an urban legend where certain city dwellers secretly inhabit the homes of other families, existing completely in the shadows of normal society. From this, we witness a rather brutal attack in a semi-abandoned apartment complex. The opening is both unsettling and well executed, and we're left off-guard as the primary story starts to unfold. We meet family man Sung-Soo, his lovely wife from America, and their two children.

This Korean film with English subtitles seems specially designed to push our buttons by hitting established horror film themes: the creepy house or apartment; the mysterious stranger; the inexplicable slide from normality to brutal menace. Beyond that, however, Hide and Seek has a special menace, partly because it is set in a foreign land, and partly because the premise seems so weirdly possible.

The main protagonist is Sung-soo, a comfortable middle class executive with a lovely wife and two small children. He has a spacious apartment and a nice car but apparently suffers from a mild obsessive compulsive disorder, which is controlled with medication and plenty of patience. Unfortunately, Sung-soo has an adopted brother who has much more serious problems. When he gets a phone call from his brother's landlord reporting him missing, Sung-soo goes to the apartment complex looking for more information. There he finds far more questions than answers, and he begins his own descent into darkness. What happens in the end is somewhat equivocal, and in true horror film fashion we are left with questions as to what, precisely, has been going on.

This is a gritty film set in one of the most unpleasant slum areas that can be imagined. In keeping with the established rules of the genre the over all mood is dark and brooding. Still, Hide and Seek is an intriguing film which pursues fear and horror through inference and suggestion rather than violence.

Korean writer/director Jung Huh made this fascinating film in 2013 to great critical acclaim. It is a well-sculpted movie and surprisingly is more understated than the usual fare from these films.

Seong-soo (Hyeon-ju Son), a successful businessman who lives with the perfect family in a luxury apartment, has secrets and mysophobia (pathological fear of contamination and germs) about his one and only brother. One day, he goes to see his brother after a phone call about him being missing and sees weird symbols all over the house and he meets Joo-hee (Jung-Hee Moon) who knows his brother. "Please tell him to stop looking at my daughter. Joo-hee lives alone with her daughter but lives in fear of someone watching them. Seong-soo looks around carefully at the old apartment and realizes the symbols mean gender and numbers of people. Seong-soo returns to his home from his brother's and notices a familiar symbol written next to the doorbell of his house, too. And the mystery thriller sails to a strange conclusion.

In Korean with English subtitles, this is a bizarre little jewel of a film, well worth watching. Grady Harp, June 14

If you are a fan of Korean cinema, then you shouldn't be even reading this review. Hide and Seek (2013) is classified as mystery/thriller. The movie is about home squatters, family ties and values, human greed, (OCD syndrome), and most importantly materialism. All these concepts or themes are mashed in with scenes involving plenty of bodily injuries resulting from broken glass and metal bar strikes. I personally, found the theme of OCD syndrome and the message the movie conveys most interesting parts in the entire movie. The plot is somewhat a little too stretched out, but realistic and pretty original. That is what draws me to South Korean thrillers, their constant originality. Korean movie directors of thriller genre never cease to amaze me!!! They never seem to run-out of fresh ideas.

I recommend this one especially to people who deep down value material possessions above all...
