An Unsettling Clip from Yong-Joo Lee’s Possessed (The Living Death)

Whenever you mention Asian horror in a room stuffed with horror fanatics, you can practically hear everyone’s eyes rolling in unison. Granted, the majority of these movies have become more than a little stale over the past few years, but there are still a few out there worthy of your attention. Yong-Joo Lee’s 2009 chiller “Possessed” (aka “The Living Death”) looks pretty freaking creepy, though I’m sure it’s not going to convert anyone who has already cemented their belief that Asian genre films have run their course. The clip provided below isn’t over the top or outrageous frightening, but it creeps under your skin and remains there for a minute or two. “Possessed” has yet to find its way onto Region 1 DVD, but if you’re lucky enough to own an all-region player, you can readily score a copy on R3.

About Todd Rigney

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    I saw this movie a few weeks ago – And while it isn’t terrifying…it was a well done ghost story. My only gripe was that there is symbolism that I just didn’t understand – although I knew it was significant (ie – the three toed bird)
