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 Seon-gyeong) to get some answers. H was shown at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
i was surprised even though i knew it was going to be a "silence of the lambs" rip off, the film was very well shot with the use of interesting photography and fairly good story mechanics. i thought that i had the end figured out, then i was wrong, then right again then i thought i had i different idea then i was wrong but i wasn't sure why, so if you want to keep second guessing yourself i suppose that this would be a pretty good movie to do that in, also the gore is really sweet, LOOK FOR THE BABY'S FOOT!
This movie was very much in the spirit of Seven (w/ Brad Pitt). Well put together, and I the ending was a good surprise.
The only complaint is the poor choice of the cast. The woman lead overdid her role as a "tough cop." The villian was portrayed to be a "mastermind" but he was only 22. The villian's dialogue made him come off like a Hannibal Lecter wannabe.
