The Wailing, by Na Hong-Jin
Today we announce The Wailing, the new film by the Korean director Na Hong-jin who has become internationally acclaimed with his latest productions. With this new work he finally gets into horror cinema.
A perfect mixture of thriller and horror that sticks you in your seat for two hours and a half; and this does not happen very often. No doubt, this is one of the highest bets of the year. We are pleased to have Korean films again, because it was 10 years ago that we had The Host. This year we are going to enjoy two Korean productions: the film we are discussing along with the blockbuster Train to Busan.
Arrow in the head – A film that is damn impossible to forget.
Horror talk – It is fun, terrific, outrageous, tragic and does not stop awaking the audience’s interest.
Terror Weekend – Outrageous mixture of thriller and horror.

A small village lost among the Korean mountains is the setting of a chain of mysterious and furious murders. Since strangeness raises suspicion, a Japanese old man who lives as an eremite far from the village is blamed of the terrible events. The scarce ability of the local police as investigators leads some people to seek a shaman’s presence. The problem is that these convictions are shared with Jong-gu, a policeman whose family is directly threatened. (TerrorWeekend).
