Kim Ji-woon

A Tale of Two SistersJ-horror, Korean style. It’s still got the girls with long hair, but it was effective and had me watching through my fingers (my big, macho fingers). This was remade in America (of course) as The Uninvited.

The Good, the Bad, the Weird – So he took a Spaghetti Western, which was initially a take on Samurai movies, and made a Kimchi Western. I thought this was pretty fun.

I Saw the Devil – Damn, the Koreans love their blood and twisted murders. In this we’ve got Old Boy himself as a sadistic serial killer, and this time he killed the wrong pregnant wife of a secret agent. Comedy ensues (and by “comedy” I mean “tragedy).
