    It's a korean horror movie that came out earlier this year but I didn't get a chance to see it until it came to my local art theater. I think you'd have to have a korean sense of humor to appreciate all of it, but overall it was awesome.
    General Plot: A mutated river monster is terrorizing a city (Seoul?). It takes takes a little girl to it's sewer lair where she plays dead and such to survive. Most of the film follows her family as they escape from quarantine and try to save her.
    Anyone else see it?

    I thought it was a good movie. I went with a few friends a month or two ago. It was pretty unique.

    I didn't have any interest in seeing this film until I saw that it was named on Rotten Tomatoes one of the top 10 sci-fi movies ever made... which stunned me. I mean, Jesus, they rated it better than 2001: A Space Odyssey! So now I'm interested...

    Eh, it's definitely not better than 2001, but it's decent.

    Well, I doubt that I'll agree with them. :) I just want to see what all the fuss is about.

    1. Fighting

    2. Mutant Dinosaurs

    3. Machine Guns

    4. a Resistance

    5. And a Big City...
