8. LIVING DEATH (A.K.A. POSSESSED) (2009)

Believe it or not, there are fanatical Christians who roam around the streets of Seoul, condemning non-believers as guaranteed candidates for Hell.

The main protagonist’s mother in Living Death is just that, a religious maniac. Her oldest daughter doesn’t see eye to eye with such obsession, but when her sister goes missing, she rushes back home from college. A series of supernatural murders greets her return. The cause? Her possessed sister.

Although we're well accustomed to horror films dealing with haunted children, director Lee Yong-ju's film tackles the genre with cultural traits unique to Korea.
