A Japanese stranger (Kunimura Jun) arrives in a sleepy little South Korean village – and disturbing things start to happen.
A policeman named Jong Goo (Kwak Do Won) is called in to investigate, as villagers begin to report sightings of a flesh-eating, red-eyed demon.
Soon afterward, a strange and inexplicable sickness starts spreading among the villagefolk. A series of murders also begins.
When his already-ill, bed-ridden daughter also falls sick, Jong Goo’s plight becomes all the more precarious.
Jong Goo teams up with a shaman named Il Gwang (Hwang Jung Min) and a mysterious woman clad in white in a desperate bid to save the village from doom.
Can he protect the residents – and his family – from the perils that unravel in this cursed village?
“The Wailing” is a 2016 South Korean horror movie directed by Na Hong Jin.
