I have mixed feelings about this one. It's almost gruesome for the sake of being gruesome. It does feature one of the most maniacal villains of recent memory though.

A brutal thriller with strong performances and an interesting story.

This film is fucking fantastic but I wouldn't call it perfect. The whole "killer becomes the prey, victim becomes the hunter" idea is a bit of a double edged sword, it makes Kyung-Chul a less terrifying and intimidating villain because his presence is hurt knowing he isn't the most dangerous person in the movie. Don't get me wrong, he's still a pretty damn scary villain and does get one up on the main character near the end, but I also feel that the two of them meet too early into the story. But on the other side of that sword, it's an interesting and unique premise that forces the main character to become a monster and psychopath just like Kyung-Chul, he might've gotten his revenge but he still lost his fiance, his fiance's family, and his sanity. 9/10
