After undergoing treatment for shock and psychosis at a psychiatric hospital, teen girl Su-mi is relieved to return home to her younger sister, Su-yeon. But their happy reunion is short-lived, as soon after, Su-mi begins having bizarre visions that seem to revolve around their suspiciously cold stepmother. Who—or what—is haunting their home? Though adapted from a Korean folktale, A Tale of Two Sisters found global popularity as the one of the first Korean films to receive a wide US/UK theatrical and DVD release. A true classic, its gothic, psychological, tragic, and ambiguous frights would define Korean horror for a generation of filmmakers and audiences.
