March 1, 2023
For the next installment in SIFF’s versus series, we pit original against remake for the ultimate showdown in interpretation.
Both contenders serve up a black comedy about a family trying to run a mountain lodge, where their guests keep accidentally dying and sending them into a downward spiral of nefarious hijinks...
But are you Team The Quiet Family, Kim Jee-woon’s (Tale of Two Sisters) South Korean original starring a young Song Kang-ho (Parasite) and Choi Min-sik (Oldboy)? Or are you Team The Happiness of the Katakuris, Takashi Miike’s (Audition, Ichi the Killer) Japanese gonzo musical remake? Come ready to defend your fighter!
