  1. ramiah's rating of the film The Wailing

  2. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film The Wailing

    Could have been a true masterpiece were it not for some glaring and frankly inexcusable plot holes that make the ending more confusing than unsettling. Very much worth it for the ride it offers nonetheless

  3. Duarte Ferreira's rating of the film The Wailing

    Hard-hitting, beautiful, chilling to the core, Na Hong-Jin's The Wailing is, I believe, one of the best horror movies of decade. From an allegory of the post-colonization fears, to the troubles of parenthood and even the dissection of the meaning of Christ's first words to his apostles after his resurrection, this film hits and pounds and bites in all the right ways.

  4. konijns's rating of the film The Wailing

  5. itwstlnd's rating of the film The Wailing

    the deepest reflection on the Sacred I've seen in a 21st century movie

  6. Bob's rating of the film The Wailing

    It starts as intriguing murder mystery, and then it seems like it doesn't know whether is trying to be a critique of superstitious people or a movie about real magic. As the story progresses, it turns out that it's apparently a critique of undiscerning mind of the main protagonist. And with everything supernatural being tossed around, it's hard to blame him. Too much ambition turned into insolence at the very end.

  10. OldGermanCurrency's rating of the film The Wailing

  11. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Wailing

    Too long (250min) & confusing possession story. Too bad because "Chaser" & "Yellow Sea", by the same author, were totally exciting. Better re-watch "The Exorcist" or Wes CRAVEN's "Serpent & The Rainbow". == Confusion & Grand Guignol vienent gâcher cette interminable histoire de possession. Dommage car "Chaser" & "Murderer", du même auteur étaient bluffant. Mieux vaut revoir L'Exorciste ou "The Serpent & The Rainbow".

  12. Severus Snape's rating of the film The Wailing

  13. The Macho King's rating of the film The Wailing

    Brooding, disturbing & cryptic.Yet another gem from Korea.

  14. fearraigh's rating of the film The Wailing

    Its opacity ended up being its ultimate selling point as Koreans flocked back to cinemas for repeat viewing. While it may be difficult to get a handle on what is going on at times, there is no denying the slick effectiveness of Na's direction. For a long film, it is also surprisingly engaging and it delivers all the thrills expected of such a film while having a suitably uneasy undertow.

  15. yuju's rating of the film The Wailing

    Not good at writting formal/experienced reviews about films. So im just going to say that this film caught me form start to finish, and the interpretation of the end is up to the viewers. Loved it. comedy + fine horror. Not cheap tricks overused in "horror" movies these days.

  18. Beatrice Lorenzini's rating of the film The Wailing

  19. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film The Wailing

    "The Wailing" is a hyper-stylistic melding of crime-thriller and ritual horror that never fails to perpetuate a terrifying atmosphere in its 2.5 hour runtime; and is reminiscent of "The Exorcist" in the way it shows an unflinching perspective of the dark sides of spirituality. One of the best horrors in recent memory.
