A town awakes under a torrential downpour and with a brutal crime. A police detective must investigate the incident, while rumors point to a bizarrely behaving stranger, suspected of having something to do with black magic. Director Na Hong-jin leaves the essentially urban spaces in his previous films behind to immerse himself in a rural thriller that plunges into the supernatural.
An essential name in thrillers with a social background, he shattered Korean box office records with his first feature film, The Chaser (08), and picked up diverse awards, including one in Sitges where he also presented The Yellow Sea (11).
