The Wailing (2016)
Tuesday 17th January 2017
South Korean box office smash, The Wailing, released on DVD by Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment on 30th January 2017, is a riveting police investigation which turns into 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.
Jong-goo calls on a charismatic shaman to free his daughter from the stranger's dangerous influence, but the shaman's intense exorcism ritual threatens to worsen the situation... and Jong-goo, with his world collapsing around him, realises he must confront the ultimate evil.
The Wailing broke box office records on its release in South Korea, garnered rave reviews after showing at Cannes 2016, and played at the prestigious BFI London Film Festival, The Wailing is an epic, assured horror film of The Exorcist-like proportions that will terrify, amuse and astound in equal measure.
