Shaping up to be one of the highest rated films by critics this year and getting a UK release next year. Asian horror is largely a fantastic genre and this looks to be a real masterpiece of it, so I'm beyond excited. It's getting all the praise!

Very excited for this and I'm really hoping it can get some big nominations at the Oscars! (Not just "Best Foreign Language Film").

Saw this today and really enjoyed it! Just as you think it's going to go one way, they flip that idea around and make you think something else. It's such a ride!

From the reviews this film doesn't seem to really fall in to any genre. There's said to be horror, thriller, drama even a bit of black comedy in it. Put me off a bit as I like a straight horror.

Great reviews though.

This is a wild ride. I hope it does well at the Oscars, there is absolutely everything you could want in this film. Everything just flows surprisingly naturally considering as well.

Very smart and just the right amount of good social commentary alongside it.

This has a general UK release today. I cant recommend it enough and I can't stress enough the fact that the less you know, the better your first experience will be I think!

I'm really excited to rewatch it on Tuesday evening!

Just got back from seeing it (managed to get it in just before the Oscars!). Phenomenal film and in a different league to most other films at the Oscars, I've not seen a film that manages to both be extremely thrilling and captivating to watch and have a really profound commentary on society as well, as well as being wonderfully acted all round and beautifully shot, the unfolding house sequences in particular are stunning, this really does deserve all the praise it gets. Will be real moment if this can pick up the Best Picture, here's hoping! (Worryingly, I did read a 'brutally honest Oscar vote' from a member that said they liked it a lot, but the award should be reserved for an American film :////)

In terms of a genre, it's very much a film of two halves. You'd think comedy-drama initially but it doesn't stay that way, it's rather fascinating!

That Oscar vote was laughable. Was it the same woman who said the acting in 'Little Women' was "horrendous" or something? laugh.gif grrr. I hope nobody else thinks like she did sad.gif

Ok so I really hate horror films, but this has got me intrigued. People who've seen it, do you think someone who gets scared easily would enjoy it?

Just to give you an idea, I saw about 2 mins of A Quiet Place on Gogglebox and hid behind a cushion for most of it...

I wouldn't call this a horror film really (the trailer is a little misleading). That's not to say there isn't some pretty scary and dark scenes that could come from the genre, but that is definitely not all there is and you really shouldn't let that put you off seeing it. It's primarily a thriller with drama and comedy elements. Like I said, it's a film of two halves and they are very different in tone.

Yeah. I wouldn't say it's a traditional horror (i.e. jump scares/monsters etc...) so don't let that put you off. Those saying it's a horror are just confused coz you can't pigeon-hole this one and I think the horrifying aspect of it is more to do with the social commentary it has.

Most important thing I think is that this film is not trying to scare you by any means. Its aim is very focused on putting you into the lives of the characters, their struggles and empathizing with them so that you care about their journey and what their outcome is at the end of the film.
