Stream It: The Wailing (2016)

Scary: Yes

There are moments of suspense, jump scares, absurdity morphing into horror… The Wailing has it all in the scare department.

Art: Yes

The cinematography is beautiful, although at times a tad dark. Dark as in, I had trouble seeing what was in the shot. But it was still beautiful.

The acting is excellent too, especially Kim Hwan-hee as Hyo-jin and Kwak Do-won as Jong-Goo.

Fun: Yes

Despite the long run time (2:36), I never felt like I was watching filler or wished they would hurry up and end things. The Wailing is a truly *good* film, regardless of genre. And while there are certainly moments of humor, I’d say this is more of a satisfying horror film than a fun one.

Watch it on Netflix? Yes
