This movie is playing at my local indie theatre. Never heard much about it except that it's pretty gory. So I have little idea of what to expect. i was wondering if any of you guys seen this and if so, is it worth the time/money?

This was my first Korean film I have the R3 DVD, to me it was rather slow, but the gore and story certainly made up for it.

Watching it on the big screen will be worth it. Go for it.

If you like "arthouse-horror" then you should give it a try. It will sure look great on the big screen. :)

Is this the one with the hooks scene? If so... be careful. :)

Saw this movie, aside of that rape scene, it was pretty good. I wouldn't recommend a purchase, though.

I picked this up today, secondhand, for $10. Not watched it yet, I'll report back! :)

I saw it on the big screen as well. The director's latest film, Spring Summer Autumn Winter and Spring is now showing too.

What makes his films so interesting, is that there is almost ZERO dialogue. And yet he still sucks you in with a great story. Spring... is very similar, except less dark and without any fishhooks.

This is a spectacular movie, and is easily one of my favorite Asian films. Its not really horror though, so for anyone going in expecting it to be, don't.
