A teenage girl named Su-mi (Im Soo-Jung) is released from a mental institution after being treated for psychosis. She returns to her, isolated tense family, including her cold stepmother Eun-joo (Yum Jung-ah) and her younger sister Su-yeon (Moon Geun-young).
So begins “A Tale of Two Sisters,” a disturbing South Korean horror film from director Kim Jee-woon (“The Last Stand”). Like other genre works from South Korea like “Parasite” and “Oldboy,” “Two Sisters” uses surprising plot twists and reversals to keep the audience on their toes. Nothing is quite what it seems with Su-mi and her sister, nor with the ghosts that haunt their house, and the result is a deeply unsettling thriller that was, for a time, the highest grossing South Korean horror film ever made (via Screen Rant).
The film even inspired a 2009 American remake, “The Uninvited,” with actress Emily Browning, but the new version received poor reviews in comparison to the original.
