The Wailing Trailer

"You better brace yourself." Well Go USA has released a final trailer and a new poster for the release of Hong-jin Na's The Wailing, a Korean horror thriller from the same guy who made The Chaser (a fantastic film) and The Yellow Sea previously. This new film is apparently over six years in the making and broke box office records in Korea. It's about an aloof police investigator who investigates a weird murder in a small village and uncovers a creepy ghost story. There's more to it than that, but you have to see it to find out. The cast includes Hwang Jung-Min, Chun Woo-Hee, Kwak Do-Woni, and Jun Kunimura. I recently had the chance to see this and it's pretty damn good, the cinematography in particular is stunning. Have a look.

Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Hong-jin Na's The Wailing, in high def from Apple:

The Wailing Poster

In this unbelievably tense supernatural thriller, a foreigner’s mysterious appearance in a quiet, rural village causes suspicion among the locals—suspicion which quickly turns to hysteria as the townspeople 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. The Wailing (originally Goksung in Korean) is both written & directed by Korean filmmaker Hong-jin Na, of The Yellow Sea and The Chaser previously. The film just played at the Cannes Film Festival, and opens in select theaters starting on June 3rd. See it.

THE YELLOW SEA was a terrific ride that took me places...so many places. I am happy about this movie. I wish it came out when I could still have seen it in Korea..

The Yellow Sea was pretty good. Also, imo, The Chaser was on another level. This looks like it could be on par with that, with the addition of the paranormal aspect of course.

Hot damn, I am interested! Got a Bong Joon-ho vibe from the trailer.
