Take a look at the story and some pictures from first-time director Jang Cheol-soo’s Korean horror film about a sickle-wielding mother hell-bent on revenge.
BEDEVILLED screened at Cannes this year, and 24 Frames Per Second got the pictures and gave this synopsis of the film:
“Hae-won is a beautiful single woman in her 30s who works at a bank in the Seoul city. She leads a busy life until she becomes a witness to an attempted murder case, and at the same time, things get complicated at work. When things get out of hand, she is forced to take a vacation, so she heads for Moodo, a small undeveloped island, where she once visited her grandparents and befriended a girl named Bok-nam, who stills writes to Hae-won asking her to visit despite the fact that Hae-won never bothered to reply. Upon arriving at the island, Hae-won is shocked to see everyone treating Bok-nam like a slave. As practically the only young woman on the island, she is a plaything for all the men and a free laborer for the women. Sick of all the inhumane treatment, Bok-nam had tried to escape the island several times in the past, but failed. She begs Hae-won to help her escape, but Hae-won remains indifferent, not wanting to be involved in complicated situations. When Bok-nam realizes that her own daughter will follow in her footsteps, she tries to escape the island with her daughter, but her daughter gets killed in the process. And when she loses the only thing that had kept her going because of Hae-won’s negligence, Bok-nam takes a sickle in her hand to exact bloody revenge.”
