A meek and nerdy young man named Jeon Juno (Hwang Jeong-Min) is an insurance claims adjuster who gets assigned to visit an old dilapidated house. He stumbles upon a "purported" suicide by a seven year old boy who has been insured for $ 30 million Won. After witnessing the supposed "suicide", Juno suspects foul play, since he had recently received a phone call a few days before asking him if the insurance company pays out the coverage in the event of a suicide. He gets harassed by the child's stepfather; Bae Doong Park ( Kang Shin Il) who comes to the office everyday until the insurance money gets paid out. `
Juno resolves to investigate the boy's parents and seek the truth about a potential insurance fraud by a psychotic scam artist. As Juno digs deeper into the case, he finds himself more involved than he wanted to, and the more Juno finds out, the more the terror mounts. Juno's life will be changed forever...
"Black House" is a thrilling attempt by South Korea to escape the usual horror fare that have mostly been "Ringu" and "Ju-On" rip-offs and tries something different.Read more ›
It's sort of like how Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys can have a great statistical season, yet somehow find a way to end it on a sour note - botched handling of a field goal, game ending interceptions, anyone?
That's how this movie plays out.
A caring, nerdy and haunted insurance agent winds up involved in the case from hell, when he unwittingly gives out some personal information to a potential client on the phone. It has a nice premise, but in the end, this individual (for the sake of not giving away too much of the plot) turns out to be almost superhuman in her tolerance for pain, and the ways that she escapes death.
I defy anyone to attempt to make sense of the ending of this movie. The last 10 to 15 minutes are downright bizzarre and illogical.
