In this unbelievably tense supernatural thriller, a foreigner s mysterious appearance in a quiet, rural village causes suspicion among the locals - suspicion which quickly turns to hysteria as the townspeople begin killing each other in brutal outbursts for seemingly no reason. As the investigating officer watches his daughter fall under the same savage spell, he agrees to consult a shaman for answers - unknowingly escalating the situation into something far more dangerous.
Over six years in the making, director Na Hong-jin s meticulously crafted follow-up to the globally acclaimed THE YELLOW SEA and THE CHASER (his third to premiere at the Festival de Cannes) smashed box office records upon its debut in South Korea, where fans are already making return viewings to catch new clues and debate what s sure to be the most talked-about ending of 2016.

Language: Korean (original)
"CRITIC'S PICK: Echoes of The Exorcist... as the suspense, violence, and worse ratched up, I was not merely scared, but heartbroken." --The New York Times
"What makes THE WAILING so unusually disturbing is the almost palpable aura of evil it radiates from calm start to sorrowful finish." --Los Angeles Times
"A bone-chilling, thunderous descent into hell" --Twitch

Overall the film at times may seem like a slow-burn horror, that may turn some people off of it. And though it can get gory at times it never does so without just cause. In the end, I'd say if you're tired of cliched horror movies, with predictable plots then give this movie a watch.

Running at 2 hours an 36 min. an 08 sec, you can never go wrong with this movie, if you think ghost are real,
you’re in for a treat of your life, I don’t know why but the Asian just seem to push the boundaries a little further,
The Wailing” is a Ghost story like no other even if the subtitles are not your thing, you can bet you’ll be entertained,
and I think it’s a smart movie for lets say the cursed that people think happen for some reason or the other,
evil lurks in mysterious ways not only in ghost, when this movie gets under your skin,
it would be enough to make you crawl like your nails on a black-board, this is filmmaking at its best,
like one person said, it’s a sense of dread that Hollywood horror films can rarely muster, I so dam agree with,
Are You Queasy Or Squeamish Look No Further...
