The trailer for South Korean film The Wailing is intense

The Wailing Hong-Jin Na

Tomorrow, June 3rd, Well Go USA will be giving the South Korean film THE WAILING a limited theatrical release in the United States and Canada, and a trailer has made its way online to give a glimpse at the horror that will soon be playing out on the big screen.

Directed by Hong-Jin Na, THE WAILING is described as an "unbelievably tense supernatural thriller", and that tension is palpable in the trailer. While I do find the film's reported 156 minute running time to be a bit troublesome, it does look like it's going to have viewers on the edge of their seats for much of that time.

THE WAILING shows what happens when 

a foreigner’s mysterious appearance in a quiet, rural village causes suspicion among the locals - suspicion which quickly turns to hysteria as the townspeople begin killing each other in brutal outbursts for seemingly no reason.  As the investigating officer watches his daughter fall under the same savage spell, he agrees to consult a shaman for answers - unknowingly escalating the situation into something far more dangerous.

Hwang Jung-Min, Chun Woo-Hee, and Kwak Do-Won star.

Watch the trailer below, and if it compels you to go see the movie check WellGoUSA.com to see if a theatre in your area will be showing it. The first batch of theatres will be getting it tomorrow (well, one theatre in Los Angeles has actually been showing it since May 20th), but then it will be rolling out to other areas throughout the rest of June.
