Deptford Cinema is proud to collaborate with the Korean Cultural Centre UK to bring you incredible cinema. Once a month, we'll screen a gem picked by KCC. And it's free!

This month's pick is FATAL INTUITION, a expert blend of crime thriller and shamanic horror. If you were enthralled and disturbed by THE WAILING, well this one's for you.

 

Since their parents' death in a car accident, Jang-Woo (Joo Won) has taken care of his younger teen sister, Eun-Ji (Ryoo Hye-Young). He watches over her almost too protectively. She's an outcast, shunned and mocked by others for her claims of premonitory abilities.

After a night out, Jong-woo returns home to find his sister missing. A stranger lurks in the background.

 

The film will be introduced by Korean film expert Dr. Colette Balmain, and while the ticket is free, it's best to make sure you've booked your seat. See you there!
