SENSUAL, PARANOIAC, SCARY…
A PIONEER WORK OF K-HORROR!
Fulfilled wife of a biology professor, mother of a charming little girl, Seon-hee leads the life of a perfect housewife. One day, her husband returns accompanied by Mi-ok, a young orphan whom he wishes to hire as a servant. This attractive shaman's daughter has only a strange wooden doll to protect her against bad luck. But Seon-hee is convinced that Mi-ok is using it to bring evil spirits into her home, ready to do anything to destroy her family...
Filmed by Go Yeong-nam, the most prolific of Korean directors with 110 films to his credit, Suddenly in the Night is a disturbing and terrifying work, halfway between Theorem by Pier Paolo Pasolini and The Servant by Kim Ki-young. Boasting tight editing and staging full of stunning visual effects in a style close to the giallo, Soudain dans la nuit draws the viewer into a whirlwind of sexual jealousy, murder and supernatural revenge.
