In The Wailing (Goksung), the arrival of a mysterious stranger (Chun Woo-hee) in an otherwise quiet village coincides with a rash of vicious murders, causing panic and suspicion amongst the villagers. When the daughter of investigating officer Jong-Goo (Kwak Do-won) falls under the same savage spell, he calls for a shaman (Hwang Jung-min) to assist in finding the culprit.
In May this year, The Wailing topped the South Korea Box Office and ended Captain America: Civil War’s two-week reign on top. With a consistent 100% on Rotten Tomatoes coupled with a great amount of social media buzz, the arrival of this film in Malaysian theatres is a boon for local horror fans.
