My personal take on some of them remains, of course. Today I talk about "Argon", "Hospital Ship" and a different kind of healing dramas,...More

Horror is a painful subject in Korean cinema. It is one of those genres that produces some very good and atmospheric movies, but also a lot of half-baked attempts at jump scares, muddled storytelling, idol promotion and often solely teen-pleasing graphicness.

Its refusal to close its story or even explain some basics of its plot was something which left a bitter taste, especially considering his talent with creating atmosphere, a constant feeling of dread and using his cast well. Thankfully, "The Guard Post" corrects a lot of the issues found in "R-Point",...More
