  1. The new MOLE SONG movie, it’s not for me. I won’t be able to watch it until the end.

    A horror movie by Irie Yû? Looks interesting, Irie can shoot “blockbusters” (not so great but efficient) and very good dark movies like Vigilante. I’ll watch this one as soon as it gets a VOD release.

    Thank you for the news!

    1. I haven’t watched any of the Mole Song movies and don’t see myself starting now.

      The second Irie movie of the year and one shot entirely in Korea. My first thought when reading about it was the horror movie, The Wailing, a fantastic title! I wonder how his movie stacks up and if there are any similarities.
