Members’ Free Film Night: Epitaph
If you haven’t seen K-Horror, then you don’t know what scary is! To set the mood for Halloween, we will be screening Epitaph, a Korean horror film famous for its intricate plot and visually stunning cinematography.
The film begins in 1979, as an old doctor reminisces about his days as a medical student at the famous Ahn Seng Hospital in Seoul during the Japanese occupation of Korea. Through flashbacks, three frightening stories unfold. Full of twists, scary images, and jarring sound effects, “Epitaph” is a psychological thriller mixed with distinctly traditional Korean images of horror.
Epitaph, the directorial debut of the brothers Jung Sik and Jung Beom-sik, received the 2007 Blue Dragon Award for Best Film.
