A unique mix of comedy, drama, action, horror, and political satire awaits viewers in a narrative of a mutated monster terrorizing the Han River in Seoul. While riot forces around the area have declared quarantine, the members of one dysfunctional family must come together to fight the monster to free her daughter from her joints (Go Ah Sung). But is the creature living in the sewers really the greatest evil that the inconsistent heroes will have to confront? Bong's distinctive variation on monster films instead of traditional genre motifs presents allegory of Korea and contemporary geopolitical situations. Seven years after its original release, the film remains at the top of the Korean rank of the most popular titles of all time.
Budget: $11,500,000
Genre: Horror Action Sci-Fi
