Kyeong Ju is a not so successful novelist who is back in his home town. As he struggles to pay his rent, an altercation with his landlady ends up in her murder. To cover up his crime, he makes her murder look like the series of murders that happened in town recently. Afraid he might be discovered, he asks the help of his old friend, detective Jae Shin.
WARNING: This movie is very graphic. The special effects are really good, i must say, although gory movies are not my cup of tea. Story wise, I liked the structure of the movie as it goes back and forth in time and sometimes you are not sure what is part of fantasy and what is not. Overall it’s an OK movie. If you enjoy gory, you might like this one a lot more than I did.
