In the course of examining patients, Byun hears the mutterings of a patient who, while under an anesthetic, talks about dismembering bodies and disposing of them in the river. This patient lives downstairs in a butcher shop with his adult son and his dysfunctional family. Byun, a devoted reader of detective novels, suspects his neighbors might be serial killers responsible for the many dismembered bodies turning up in the area. The butcher shop might be using parts of human bodies to stock their shop.
This creepy film incorporates Alfred Hitchcock’s favorite theme of placing an innocent person in the midst of a situation that puts him in great danger. The movie creates horror the way that “Silence of the Lambs” did — by presenting unsettling, sociopathic characters devoted to heinous, demented crimes. We are appalled by the extent of the crimes and realize that the more Byun gets involved, the greater the peril he faces. Director Soo-Yuon creates suspense that escalates as the story unfolds, and presents several disturbing images.
There are no special features in the unrated, widescreen Blu-ray release. The film is in Korean, with available English subtitles.
