  • So when the demon randomly picked a soul to take, did he also randomly choose to be Japanese? Seems a lil' racist.... I'm watching this again, and I'm wondering if this is only the commentary, or this original intent?

  • I've watched it 4x now ..even though the ending is crystal clear... its still difficult to reconcile with Il Gwang's (the Shaman) initial purpose. The grandmother brought him to help Hyo Jin...was he waiting for his invitation to work against the family?. Hyo Jin was already 'sick' with the evil spirit. Was Il Gwang making it worse? What was the father's sin? Who did he accuse? He was against the Japanese man from the start. I appreciate the way the film keeps us from the truth until the end..but it's still not completely clear

  • Not gonna lie, that hired shaman's ritual looks pretty demonic to me, but I'm only halfway through the video. We'll see. I don't know too much about shaman stuff, but blood rituals, drinking the blood, and cutting down are red flags for me. EDIT: YEP! Finished the video. I was right.

  • Sad thing is, he cannot save his entire family, they were already killed by his daughter long before he enter the gate. He can save only him and his daughter by trapping the devil and prevent further death or else they will also both die like the other survived victims.

  • Call me a mainstream coward but I'd like it more if the good spirit won. I think too many horror movies are masturbatory with their evil endings, and it cheapens the genre. The babadook is an example of a scary horror film with a life-affirming, positive ending.

    Sebastián SánchezSebastián Sánchez2 tháng trước
  • One question: if people knew that the Japanese man had raped a woman, why wasn't he in jail, why wasn't he at least being investigated, but completely off the police radar? If the community hadn't turned a blind eye to this and would have cared about a woman getting raped and driven mad by it, the demon would have been exposed sooner and maybe this would have chased him away from the village. But I guess the demon chose that particular community, exactly because he sensed it was filled with cowards and petty souls, who don't care about and will not protect their girls and women. Jong-goo himself chooses to believe the "shaman", a man, instead of the woman in white, thus sealing his daughter's and his own fate and ultimately, that of the village. And notice how Jong-goo's policeman friend tells him to ignore the woman in white, the first time she appears.

  • Wait wait wait, I dont understand, why was the evil man writhing in agony and almost defeated when the shaman was doing his big de-cursing thing? If the shaman and the old man were working together, why was the shaman seemingly attacking him (the old man/demon) there? And why does the old man/demon only survive because the shaman is stopped? If the shaman was not interrupted and completed his big ritual, would that not have killed the old man/demon? In which case arent they not working together then? I'm confuzzled...
