Review

A reboot of Pascal Laugier’s slasher horror film of the same title in 2008 highly acclaimed by horror film fans. Co-directed by Kevin Goetz and Michael Goetz, this American version is quite true to the original. Kidnapped when young, Lucie has been tortured. After fleeing from the hell, she meets Anna in an orphanage. A decade later, Lucie finds out the family who tortured her and retaliates them with Anna. Unlike the original story with some religious implications, this one focuses more on raising gradual tension. Directors refine ruthless descriptions of original film like peeling skins and adjust once extremely pessimistic conclusion. (JANG Byungwon)
