Every Family Has It's Dark Secrets...

Director Kim Jee-woon (A Bittersweet Life, I Saw The Devil) made his international reputation with this richly conceived, stylishly shot, and genuinely scary chiller, one of the key films of the Korean New Wave.

Released from a mental institution, Su-mi returns home with her father and her younger sister, Su-yeon, only to face her cold stepmother’s strange behaviour, and the disturbing apparitions that are haunting their house. What dark secret connects them all to the family's past?

Haunting and heartbreaking in equal measure, A Tale of Two Sisters’ devastating mix of style, scares and emotive storytelling blurred the boundaries between genres as few other horror films had done before and had a profound influence on a new generation of filmmakers.

a tale of two sisters

excellent thriller of 2 sisters and the common bond which holds them together..

Gorgeous and unsettling.

This fantastic movie has always had great extras but Arrow now have even more and a lovely new print. A film that gets better the more you watch it. Great booklet essays too.
