The DVD says:

A film with excruciating suspense leading to a gore leaden whirlwind of violence starts with Hae-won (Ji Sung-won), a middle management woman who with the increasing pressures of work and home situation decides to take a break from it all and return to the pleasant, remote island that she spent happy summers with her grandparents. Arriving she finds her childhood friend Bok-nam (Yeong-Hie So). Ecstatic to see her friend, Bok-nam begs her to help her and her child escape from the island. Perplexed Hae-won ignores her pleas but is shocked to witness the horrific torment that Bok-nam endures every day. Each woman is stretched to their limits and it is only a matter of time before one finally, and gruesomely, snaps. Jang Cheol-so delivers a brutal, emotionally shattering film that blends humour, suspense, drama and horror into a seamless whole.

My Opinion:

A surprising film that doesn't follow the usual horror plot. Starting in the big city, the plot makes a stark shift to a remote insular island with very strict old fashioned expectations for the male and female role. Add in that the men seem to be inbred and sexually depraved and you know that things are going to go wrong. The script takes it's time to build up to the crescendo of violence at the end of the film, but by then you'll be egging on the gory retribution! The film does seem to be rather long and just when you think everything is over, there is another lengthy section before the final bloody scene. The picture and sound quality on the DVD release are great and the DVD has a few minor extras, the best of which is some behind the scenes footage.
