3 Scary Korean Movies to Give You the Chills


There is a reason behind the release of horror films during summer — the terror of the films will give you chills that will cool you in the summer heat. Do believe it? Give these three films, available on Netflix, a try and see if you stay cool for the rest of the day.

The Wailing (2016)

When a mysterious disease leads to death and chaos in a mountain village, a policeman with an infected daughter consults a powerful shaman. This film makes you uneasy in that you do not know who is telling the truth or who is lying.

Starring: Kwak Do-won, Hwang Jeong-min, Chun Woo-hee

Manhole (2014)

A serial killer abducts a young witness and flees down a manhole to his hideout. When her sister enters his lair, the girls plot a desperate escape. The flickering lights that stand between a teenager and her attacker who stands in the distance start the movie off with a intensity and a chill that will last for the duration of this thriller.

Starring: Jung Kyung-ho, Jung Yu-mi, Kim Sae-ron

The Silenced (2015)

In the 1930s, a girl is sent to a boarding school where she notices that strange things are happening to her schoolmates. There is something unsettling about the film that ligers until questions are answered as the film progresses. The film takes place when Korea was occupied by Japan so expect an equal amount of Japanese and Korean.

Starring: Park Bo-young, Uhm Ji-won, Park So-dam
