Fear East


Kim Jee-Woon
Südkorea 2003
115 min

After a long illness, two sisters return home to a distant father and a cruel stepmother. Dreams about their late mother awaken Su-Mi the next morning. Strange things begin to happen from that moment on. Based loosely on an old Korean folk tale, Kim Jee-Woons fresh approach twists the source material into a narrative jigsaw puzzle that will leave you guessing until the end. Based on a Korean folk tale, and boasting a chillingly realized, monstrous performance by Yeom Jeong-Ah as the evil stepmother, the film became one of the years biggest hits in Korea, prompting Dreamworks to snap it up for an American remake.
