In this tense supernatural thriller from South Korean director Na Hong-Jin, the arrival of a mysterious stranger in a quiet rural village causes suspicion that turns to panic as the villagers begin brutally killing each other for no apparent reason. When a police officer consults a powerful shaman for answers, the situation escalates into something far more dangerous.

Over six years in the making, director Na Hong-jin’s meticulously crafted film, his third to premiere at the Festival de Cannes, smashed box office records upon its debut in South Korea, where fans are already making return viewings to catch new clues and debate what’s sure to be the most talked-about ending of 2016
