By the time I got to the point where Jong-Goo, the main character, [spoiler] beats the Japanese stranger's dog to death [/spoiler] , I was beyond weary of this movie. It is an overly long movie where the separate scenes are dragged out to the point where they become nothing. Terrible things are going on in this town and this incompetent police officer is the lens through which we observe these events. He is a terrible lens. His entire motivations are fear and racism, a powerful combination that would work well in a better film, but not here. I felt nothing for any of the characters. I was not interested in their fate. It is a movie full of nothing that ends at a predictable, inevitable point. It felt like an incredible waste of time.

This movie started out interesting but it seemed to break down with multiple plots that didn't really make sense after awhile. It was hard to take the main plot seriously enough to suspend disbelief. I stuck it out, but came away disappointed.

Maybe if this movie was 45 minutes shorter it would have been good. It was way too long, with some pointless stories and scenes. I do not understand why so many critics loved it. Not worth the 2.5hrs.

I don't often use the word masterpiece. I've seen 1,040 films in my life, totalling 1,549 hours of filmography. There's maybe 7 I would label a masterpiece with full usage and definition of the word.

The Wailing is the eighth film of one thousand and forty films I very willingly, gladly and witho More

Some people will find The Wailing terrifying of that I have no doubt. Tonally we start off with gruesome death, although gruesome is mainly in the mind, the actual victims are in shadow, there are blood sprays seen up the walls but for overall grue there really is not as much as you believe there is More

**A father's struggle to see his daughter to get well.**

A new film from the writer, director of 'The Chaser' and 'The Yellow Sea'. This time its a horror-thriller that focused on a rural police officer who witnesses a series of strange events escalating fears among its people. The original title More

Watching "The Wailing" is quite an undertaking. With a runtime of almost 3 hours this Korean Horror-Triller is a shear beast. Unfortunately I feel like pretty much more than half the runtime should have been cut. "The Wailing" circles around in a seemingly endless "who done it" or, to be more precis More
