I will be talking about a scary Korean movie that you should watch each Saturday this October to get you in the mood for Halloween.

(This is the one and only time I will be posting a movie card in K-pop so be sure to check out the Korean Movies and K-Drama communities)
Tale of Two Sisters is a story about, you guessed it, two sisters!
The film is based loosely off an old Korean folktale장화, 홍련, and is one of the craziest psychological thrillers I've ever seen.
The film begins with the oldest sister Su-mi leaving a mental institution after being treated for shock and psychosis. We aren't told what triggered this condition, but we know that she is released and brought back home to live with her father, younger sister, and step mom.
Su-mi is not a huge fan of her step mom, considering she was the live-in nurse for Su-mi's mom that passed away and then married her dad, and she's pretty sure the step mom is abusing her younger sister Su-yeon who has mysterious bruises on her arm...
The audience starts to lose sense of reality because Su-mi and Su-yeon both start to have wild dreams, visions, and hallucinations. We're never quite sure if we're watching a nightmare or their reality.
The dreams (and reality) become increasingly scarier as the characters all start to lose their minds.
The ending comes out of nowhere and you'll probably have to read the synopsis a few times to understand it - but it is definitely not what you'd expect. If you're into psychological thrillers, this is a must-watch.
Solid 8.5 out of 10 from me!
