El extraño (The Wailing)

de Na Hong-jin

Synopsis

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.
