The Story Line:
A Japanese guy has presently arrived at the little town in the South Korean mountains, living in a private house. The mysterious illness began scattering towards the villagers that triggers rashes where it preceded violent, fatal outbreaks following the stupor and then death.
Police official Jong-goo, who is examining the case, encounter a strange young lady named as Moo-myeong, who told him regarding the Japanese outsider, and then later disappears. 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 outsider guard dog in the house attacked the Jong-goo and the priest. The outsider arrived and then pacifies the dog, while the remaining three leaves.
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.
