Asians love monster movies for some reason. Gamera, Mothra, Jet Jaguar, Destroyah, and ofcourse Godzilla. If that stuff is your taste see my review of Godzilla vs. Destroyah.
But this movie is not like those at all! Those movies are cheesy and not serious and thats why they're awesome. This movie is serious, original, and very very good.
A man runs a food stand in Korea near the Han river. One day people see some strange tadpole thingy hanging on the bridge. At first people are throwing food in the water for it and its just a thing of curiosity until it jumps out of the water and starts killing everyone. The thing takes the man's daughter and keeps her in a pit in the sewer with a bunch of dead bodies.
Meanwhile the government says that anyone who has come into contact with the monster has a bad virus. So the man and his family search all the sewers around the Han river for the girl while being hunted down by the government at the same time.
The movie is a little strange but the story is original and the ending is great. I would highly recommend this one!
Memorable line: How many tails does that thing have?
