MONSTER (2014, 113 min)

Things get dark and electrifying in Hwang In-ho’s new thriller, Monster – the intense tale of the mentally handicapped Bok-soon (KIM Go-Eun), who lives and works with her younger sibling. When angered, she tends to go off, and everyone around her considers her the neighborhood’s crazy woman. All that changes when Bok-soon discovers a serial killer who murders her sibling to hide his own secret. Now it’s time for the one woman who no one trusts to track down a killer that no one believes is real. A thrilling mystery from director Hwang In-ho, this new film reminds us that there is no fury like that of a woman scorned!

The film will be shown in Korean with English subtitles.

The next free Korean Movie Night screening will be of NORA NOH (2013, 93 min) on Tuesday, April 29th, 2014.
