As the bodies pile up, so do the laughs in this Evil Dead–style blend of macabre shocks and absurdist humor. Having left Seoul to open an inn in the mountains, the Kang family finds business disappointingly slow as they wait anxiously for customers. But when their first guest winds up dead, it’s only the beginning of a run of seriously bad luck, as everyone who checks in meets a similarly grisly fate. Now, what to do with all those corpses? Loosely remade by Takashi Miike as The Happiness of the Katakuris, this jet-black comic thriller offers a subversive take on the concepts of duty and solidarity within the Korean family unit.
