The local hunter told Jong-goo that he noticed the near-naked guest eating the deer, with red glowing eyes. Jong-goo was anxious, as he had dreams regarding this stranger, where the hunter had explained it to him. He enlisted the help of the other police official, and the Japanese-speaking priest that serve being their translator, and they examined the outsider house while being away. The other police officials discovered photos of the murdered and infected residents with their belongings. He is also shocked to state anything about the others.

The police official told Jong-goo about what his witness, and handed over the shoe that belonged to the daughter of Jong-goo, Ms. Hyo-jin. Soon, Hyo-jin became sick and then displayed identical symptoms just like with the other grimy villagers. Jong-goo makes his way into the house of the stranger with an anger priest, but discovered that the pictures and the evidence have been blazed. Furious, he smashed out the stranger’s worship room and then murdered the dog when it comes to him, ordering the outsider to leave their village.


The Writers’ View:

The director, battles on finding a good tonal balance. During those times of pitch perfect and during the other moments all over the spot, the tone battles on being consistent. For the primary third of the movie, it is initially a funny film with brief bursts of violence and depravity. The comedy worked so well and the viewers are laughing many times. Then when a terrible imagery came up it was just sudden and so effective. There was the natural balance here, but it seemed lost with the next act. The comedy became slapstick and it did not fit in the rest of the movie. The artists became on-the-top and their acting is somewhat not on the ways expected from them and really different from their introduction.

The small-town coroner or investigator Tommy Tilden together with the assistance from his son Austin has ended the autopsy of the burned corpse, then, suddenly Emma, Austin’s girlfriend, came and became curious about the dead bodies at the morgue.

When she saw the tied bell at the ankle of the dead body, Tommy explained to her that, formerly, the bells were applied to give a signal if somebody was just in a comatose condition instead of them really dead. The police arrived with the strange body and told Tommy that he needed the COD or cause of death report the next morning. Austin decided to assist his father instead of going out with Emma going to the theater, but he still asked her to come back after hours. Since the body’s identification is still unknown and the fingerprints were not on the records of the police, they refer the dead as Jane Doe. Tommy and Austin began with the autopsy through the external inspection of the corpse. They noticed that there were no visible signs of scars or marks and trauma. They found out that her eyes were cloudy, and this only happens when the bodies were already dead for a couple of days, but still the corpse appears fresh. Her ankle bones and wrist were shattered having no outward signs of injury and the tongue has been removed non-surgically.

 The Writers’ View:

The film was a lighthearted movie. It is a father and a son mortician type of movie. The director wonderfully succeeded in the initial creation of a comfortable environment, together with the little casting of characters and the setting of scenarios, and then masterfully began upping the discomfort heights of the situation, until the moment came that you are finally sitting on the boundary of your seat, and biting your nails at the same time. Like in the former movies of Øvredal’s, which describe as what you can’t see may be a million periods more disturbing than what is seen with our plain sight, but here he applied it both; the great atmosphere, great characters, and an overall impressive experience.

The Writers’ View:

At first, you will not be aware about what to expect from this film since it became so hard to take seriously some movie sharks. The Shallows however, is the best shark film for me ever since the Jaws and honestly speaking, it is the best image feature in ages!

In only 85 minutes, the film gives their most and provided a tension, stress, gripping, inducing film that will continue keep you from the edge of where you are seated. Blake Lively here is definitely on her way to the stardom, as she carried the whole movie and was able to perform well without the need to speak, and that is totally insane and hard to do for some that is not so good enough. In this movie, you will surely care about her and you will also want her character here to survive. This film is so smart and the movie director is deserving of all the credits we can give in creating this film as one of the best. Honestly speaking, this movie made it a well done classic in this genre.
