Black House (검은 집)

검은 집 (Geom-eun Jib)

Directed by Shin Terra (신태라)

Screenplay by

Fear Thriller

104min | Release date in South Korea :

Joon-oh, formerly a bank employee, gets a call on his first day at work from a woman seeking advice. She asks if insurance is paid out on suicides, and only after hanging up does he see the warning on the insurance agreement. A few days Joon-oh receives a request for a meeting with an unknown policy holder. From the living room of a decrepit house Joon-oh opens the door to the bedroom to see a seven-year-old hanging from the ceiling. Police start an investigation, but the autopsy and all the evidence points to suicide. But Joon-oh canít shake his suspicions that the incident was actually a murder. Believing that insurance, which should protect lives, cannot be seen to promote murder, he withholds payment. There is evidence of other serial murders, and a secret lying inside company records in storage. Where is the truth? And what is the true nature of the Black House?

Although admittedly, whoever drafted that rule probably did not anticipate that the company's insurance agents would go through the procession of body horror that is the "Black House",...More
