The Mimic

Next, we have a mystery-infused tale of a mother looking for her son only to later come across a little girl who has clouds of secrets and suspicion surrounding her. Inspired by a Korean urban legend, this is a film that will leave you with an eerie feeling throughout the length of the film.

The Mimic is the story of a mother who has lost her son five years ago. Mentally distressed by this incident, she later comes across a young girl who has been abused and left in the woods. However, upon adopting the young girl, strange incidents begin occurring and make her doubt everything that she sees.

The film brings an intriguing plot that will leave you petrified as you feel the cold air surrounding you which makes it perfect for horror lovers.

The Wailing centres around a policeman trying to investigate mysterious deaths in a village which had been termed to be due to a poisonous mushroom.

Horror movies and newlyweds really know how to get together and bring us a story filled with mysteries surrounding one of the partners. This is a similar story of a couple where the wife is surprised by her husband’s strange habits that soon make her fear into seeking help from shamans.

Sleep brings the story of a newlywed couple whose lives become a nightmare when the husband begins sleep-walking which only gets worse day by day.

Curses and a historical setting cannot go wrong, and with the rules and regulations of the Joseon era, we can say that a feudal society will only add to the tension. This film brings all these to the table and what started as a thriller will soon become a horror that will keep you at the edge.

The Wrath tells the story of a high-ranking family that faces the deaths of its three sons due to a curse. Now, the women of this family have to face the politics, society, and a ghost who is here for vengeance. What will this tragedy bring to the women and their children?
