Featuring in Cannes 2016, and a box office smash in South Korea, The Wailing is a riveting police procedural which becomes a sensationally terrifying thriller.
Out of his depth, local police officer Jong-goo investigates a spate of killings, as well as an outbreak of madness seemingly connected to the recent arrival of a mysterious Japanese man who resides in the outskirts of the village. What’s more, he is horrified to discover his young daughter may have fallen under the stranger’s curse.
