If your still browsing for some movie inspiration for the evening, check out the last 4 Korean movies for Halloween. Most of them are available on Netflix or Youtube. I am aware there are a lot more Korean shockers (more disturbing, more bloody) out there, which shouldn’t be missing on any list. Mind you, I’m saving some for next year 😉 Hold your popcorn and tortillas tight, let’s get started!
*I took the plot descriptions from Wikipedia and Soompi.
A Tale of Two Sisters / 장화, 홍련 (2003)
Su-mi is being treated for shock and psychosis in a mental institution. The doctor questions her about the day that led her to the institution, but she refuses to answer. Later, Su-mi returns home to her family’s estate in the countryside with her father and her younger sister Su-yeon. There Su-mi faces disturbing events between her stepmother and the ghosts haunting their house – all of which are connected to a dark past in the family’s history. “A Tale of Two Sisters” is the top runner among Korean horror movies.
