Movie Info

South Korean filmmaker Lee Jong-hyeok makes his directorial debut with the psychological thriller H. Head cop Kim Mi-yeon (Yeom Jeong-ah) and detective Kang (Ji Jin-heui) lead an investigation of several copycat murders. It seems that all the recently gruesome murders are mimicked in the style of serial killer Shin Hyeon (Jo Seung-woo), who is locked in prison on death row. After the suspects start getting killed in the same way, Kim and Kang seek the help of psychiatrist Chu Gyeong-suk (Kim

Suffers from cheesy production values, the clumsy manner of the storytelling, ill-conceived characters and crude acting.

H nonetheless has enough bright spots and well-done moments (though not for the squeamish) that it merits a cautious recommendation.

With H, we get the thrills and the twists, yes, but we also get the down time, a space where cliché and human nature collide.

New to DVD from Tartan Video (real champs of bringing Asian horror to U.S. shores), this one will likely appeal to fans of Se7en and The Silence of the Lambs.

H sets up its enigmatic premise with a gruesome style and intensity, and finally ties up the mystery with ... well, nothing a little suspension of disbelief can't fix.

Audience Reviews for H

Korean serial-killer thriller about a spate of copycat killings emulating the murders of a notorious murderer on death row. It's not exactly rife with originality but I still thought it was pretty good. It's got a decent twist at the end which I didn't see coming. Fairly graphic violence wise too so there's enough grisly murders and crime scenes to satisfy the gore hounds.

Don't bother watching this if you have Se7en, Manhunter or Memories of Murder at hand. It's a poor mans...anything in this genre really. Interesting at times but mostly a confused and at times laughable serial killer thriller. The performances are okay but the dialogue is flat and at times just attempts to explain the film. There are some nice unprdictable moments, but they just add to the mess. The beginning with dead babies is both shocking and twisted, but it sort of loses its edge once it falls into genre stereotypes.

H is a gruesome Korean thriller, which "borrows" many ideas from Silence of the Lambs. A man who commits brutal murders of pregnant women is imprisoned, the murders keep happening. The detectives of the case then constantly interview the man trying to solve the puzzle. If SOtL never existed, this would be much more appreciated. I did predict the ending early on, and much of the acting was overdone, but something about this film touched me. I think the uniqueness was the tension between detectives, the back to backs got almost as brutal as the crime. The film was gory from the start, and not for people with a weak stomach. I wouldn't confuse this for anything good, but it was a worthy watch. The rating is generous, but I can't go lower.
