1. SYMPATHY FOR MR. VENGEANCE (2002)

Part of Park Chan-wook’s revenge trilogy, although this film has no plot affiliation to Old Boy, Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance is the best of the lot.

As far as the plot, Chan-wook's cinematic deathblow centers on a mute factory worker who's trying to save his cancer-stricken sister. When organ sellers trick him, he and his terrorist girlfriend decide to kidnap the daughter of his former employer. One unintended mistake, however, leads to another, and, by the end, damn near everyone in the film is offed in viciously brutal, non-Hollywood ways.

The fatality roll call includes suicide, drowning, electric torture, stabbing, batting, and others types of killing tactics mentioned by Raekwon and Method Man on Wu-Tang's Enter The Wut-Tang: 36 Chambers.
