    It's ok to be an alcoholic mess if you're a woman, cuz men are assholes and it's not your fault the patriarchy is at large. Also, Seoul does sound like soul. Pretty clever amirite?

    Fascinating atmospheric horror that feels so ahead of it's time. Ahead of most horror films made in America at the time, very much in the vein euro gothic horror. The closest i could think in terms of mood and framing will be Mario Bava. It's an effective slowburn horror tale that plays tricks with the audience, in a clever way. Never showing any contempt for the viewer. It's one of those few movies that truly feels that it fell from another dimension. Deserves a criterion BR pronto.
