Rated R · 2009
An emotionally troubled South Korean Catholic priest falls further from grace when he accidentally becomes a vampire through blood transfusion, and then satisfies his sanguine sexual desires with a young woman trapped in a loveless marriage. Sounds like filmmaker Park Chan-wook’s idea of paradise, and the creator of Old Boy peoples his wryly humorous, fleshy-and-bloody tale (it’s actually a sardonic adaptation of Emile Zola’s 19th-century French novel Thérèse Raquin) with his notorious character touches, plus enough graphic gore and cause-and-effect plot machinery to disturb the dead. Alongside Let the Right One In, further sign of a serious 21st-century vampire revival. Solid, sweaty acting (you can almost smell their predicaments) by Song Kang-ho as the priest, Kim Ok-bin as the wife, and Kim Hae-sook as a mean old lady who deserves what’s coming to her (133 min.).
