The Wailing

The Wailing


An unbelievably tense supernatural thriller from Hong-jin Na, director of The Yellow Sea (LIFF25). A stranger’s mysterious appearance in a quiet, rural village causes suspicion among the locals – suspicion which quickly turns to hysteria as they 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. ‘A bullet train of laughs, gore, frights and folklore.’ (The Playlist)
