Behind the scenes featurette
Ji Seong-won stars as Hae-won, a woman who goes back to her grandparents' home on a remote island after suffering a series of setbacks in her life. There she is reunited with her childhood friend Kok-nam (Seo Yeong-hie), whose problems make her own pale into insignificance. After enduring years of violence, degradation and sexual abuse at the hands of her husband and the other islanders, Kok-nam appeals to Hae-won to help her escape. When Hae-won refuses, Kok-nam finally reaches breaking point and goes on a bloodthirsty revenge rampage against those who have wronged her.
I have the South Korean import blu-ray for "Bedevilled". Really love this film. Glad to see that Well Go USA picked up this film. If you enjoy South Korean films like "Memories of Murder" (I have the South Korean blu-ray for this film too), "Howling" (hopefully Well Go USA picks this film up too and releases it on blu-ray), "Helpless" (hope they pick this film up to), "Mother", "Secret Sunshine", "Old Boy", "Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance", "Lady Vengeance", "I am a Dad", "The Chaser" and "Nowhere To Hide", then you will definitely enjoy "Bedevilled".
