Product Description

Product Description

Shin Hyun (Seung-woo Cho) walks into the local police station toting the mutilated bodies of six missing women, confesses to the murders and accepts his fate. A psychopathic serial killer is caught and the case closed. Or is it? One year later, the bodies of two high school girls and a pregnant woman are discovered, killed in the same manner. Believed to be a copy-cat crime, detectives Kim Mi Yun (Jung-ah Yum, A Tale of Two Sisters) and Kang Tae Hyun (Jin-hee Ji), polar opposites both professionally and personally, are assigned to the case. As the investigation continues, new suspects are taken into custody, but the body count continues to rise. It soon seems that no one, not even the detectives themselves, are beyond suspicion.

4.0 out of 5 stars What's not to like. July 25 2006
By Avid Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Do not listen to the bad review because they are wrong. This is just like the cover ad says "It's Se7en meets Silence of the Lambs." I think the graphic violence in this films reaches the level of seven so if you did not like seven because of its graphic nature then skip this film. But if you have the stomach to see it then this is the thriller of the year and you should see it.

4.0 out of 5 stars H Oct. 26 2010
By Carl Manes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
H is one of the strongest thrillers to come out of Korea since Park Chan Wook's VENGEANCE trilogy. While it has taken obvious ques from key American influences such as THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, it is not just another cheap imitation. The film follows detectives Kang and Kim as they track down a copycat killer that has been murdering women using the same patterns as a man that they have already imprisoned. With the next murder only days away, they must confide in the sadistic Shin Hyun in order to find out the identity of the new killer before it is too late. Director Jong-hyuk Lee combines a smart script with a clean shooting style to produce a fast-paced and suspenseful crime drama that is built on a pair of excellent performances by Jin-hee Ji and Jung-ah Yum as the two cunning detectives. Their performances are equaled by the calm and calculating Shin Hyun, played by a convincing Seung-woo Cho. Lee takes extra care in establishing his characters and constructing the mystery behind the murders, but none of the clues that are dropped throughout the film give any indication of the killer's true identity. This makes the reveal in the end feel both convenient and contrived. Outside of this unfortunate misstep, H is a top-rate psychological thriller with a winning cast and many bloody murders.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a rental. May 3 2013
By Robert Beveridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
H (Jong-hyuk Lee, 2002)

Se7en Meets Silence of the Lambs! crows the cover art, obviously written for an American audience, that adorns this movie at Netflix. I read a review on IMDB from a person who mentions that overseas box art compares the film to Tellmisseomding. All of these comparisons have teeth, but as this movie progressed, I found myself thinking more and more of Kyua, Kiyoshi Kurosawa's immensely entertaining supernatural take on ...Lambs. H is not as good a movie as any of the above, but its problems are relatively minor and if you're looking for a fun locked-room murder mystery, this will fill the bill nicely.

Shin-hyun (Marathon's Seung-woo Cho), a serial killer, turns himself in and is locked up. Everything seems great...until a year later, when two recent crimes are uncovered that bear the marks of being Shin-hyun's work. The only problem is that he was in prison when they occurred. So the two detectives who were originally assigned to the case, Mi-yun Kim (Tellmisseomding's Jung-ah Yum) and Tae-hyun Kang (Perhaps Love's Jin-hee Ji in her first screen appearance), hit the bricks to see if they can figure out whether they've got a copycat on their hands, or whether Shin-hyun is masterminding what could be an entire network of serial killers from behind bars. Or whether the answer is something even weirder...

It's quite a slick little film that wears its influences on its sleeve maybe a little too much; it tries to make up for this by coming up with a bang-up plot twist, and for what it's worth, they did a good job at it. The Big Reveal(TM) here is an interesting take on a couple of stock plot twists, but I don't think I've ever seen them combined in quite this way before (though I can identify three or four things that might have been direct influences). That's ultimately not enough to balance the weight of the movie's derivative nature, but as long as you're willing to put that to the side, it's a well-acted, well-presented little movie, and you won't feel you've wasted two hours after watching it. ***

4.0 out of 5 stars Cruelly killing for the sake of life's nobility June 3 2007
By Daniel J. Hamlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Two young women are found brutally murdered, one in a landfill, the other on a bus. Both were pregnant, with one infant still wriggling inside his dead mother's stomach.

The homicide department's cops are called in, led by Detective Kim Mi Yun, who has a new partner, Kang Tae Hyun. Kang's a bit of a hothead, he's always late to the scene of the crime, and he seems a bit cocky at times. So he's a bit difficult to like. And he's especially impatient, wanting action now as opposed to waiting.

In contrast, Kim is an icy, unsmiling person, but at the same time, more logical. When Kang is frustrated that they are getting nowhere, she merely tells them she is going around, looking at the case from a different angle. When he tells her she is mean, she retorts that yes, she is mean, but at least not as emotional as he is.

There is a reason for Kim's harshness. The killings fit the same pattern as that of Shin Hyun, a psychopath who murdered six women in ten months before turning himself in. Shin Hyun's crimes was so traumatic to Kim's partner Han Jung-woo, he ended up killing himself. The agony was double due to the fact that Han and Kim were engaged.

So the question is, is this a copycat killing, or has Shin Hyun hired someone to duplicate his crimes? A meeting with Shin Hyun's psychologist, Dr. Chu Kyung-Sook is a dead end. She's more level-headed but aloof, refusing to cooperate due to patient confidentiality. It's a matter of professional conduct, but she flatly tells Kim and Kang, "My patient is more important to me than a victim I don't know." And when the pair later tail her, she merely gives them a superior smile, definitely not one to let them get her goat.

The cover's description of "Se7en meets Silence of the Lambs" holds true up to a point. Shin Hyun's quite anti-social, his quiet words laced with a kind of weird babble about the echoing abyss, dirty blood, and the restless sound of spirits, so thus a far cry from the terrifying but intelligent words of Hannibal Lecter. But the methodology involving his killings is very thematic to what made him the way he is. A woman who had an abortion was not only killed, she had her left ring finger cut off because according to him, she was unworthy of marriage. And an abortion doctor was killed in a very horrible way. "Cruelly killing for the sake of life's nobility," remarks the chief of police.

H is a pretty bloody serial killer drama, with throats slit, people butchered in horrible ways--with one particular scene of a corpse suddenly crashing on top of a police car with a thud. And there are a few red herrings thrown in for good measure. But what's thematic is the abortion issue as a whole, the choice of having the baby or not. As Detective Park says, "Use a condom or have the <expletive> baby!"

If Yeom Jeong-a (Kim) is familiar, it's because she appeared in A Tale of Two Sisters as the stepmother, Eun-joo. She's a far cry from that manic character, as Kim barely cracks a smile in this film. And the actor playing the police chief, Park Young-Su, also came out in the horror film Whispering Corridors as the teacher, "Mad Dog" Oh, as well as another police higher-up in Another Public Enemy. Not bad as police/serial killer dramas go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hypnotic Korean Psychological Thriller Aug. 25 2006
By Ernest Jagger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I have never been one of those viewers who are into serial killer films. I find most of them sickening and quite a few have a bit more gore than I like in my films--and not enough suspense. There are the few exceptions: And one of these is the South Korean thriller "H". However, this film does have a high level of gruesome scenes depicted. Therefore, as a word of caution, be warned that this is an extremely violent film. Moreover, the plot is not what you would find in your usual American style of thriller. But it does have an interesting and suspenseful twist that I happened to think worked extremely well in this film. Having written this; I would recommend that viewers rent the film first, as it may not appeal to the majority of viewers out there.

The films narrative begins with a recently discovered body of a murder victim in a landfill, while another body has been found on a bus. Moreover, these murders resemble the killings of a sociopath who is awaiting the death penalty for similar killings. Is he the killer? Is the true killer still out there? Or is it a copycat killer? Shin Hyun (Seung-woo Cho) gives a great performance [as usual] as the killer awaiting his death sentence. Shin turned himself into the police ten months ago after murdering six women, and was sentenced to death after being found guilty. However, with these latest killings resembling Shin Hyun's, two detectives are called in to investigate if Shin Hyun is the real killer. He confessed to the killings, and everyone believes he is guilty. Is he? Or is there more to the killings than we are led to believe? These latest detectives brought in are to get to the bottom of things. Kim Mi Yun (Jung-ah Yum) is somewhat aloof and disconnected with those around her. Her latest partner Kang Tae Hyun (Jin-hee Ji) is more hot headed and is ALWAYS late to the crime scenes.

With the cool detachment of Detective Kim, and the brash and impatient attitude of Detective Kang, they both set out to find clues and answers to the latest killings: And where it leads them is strange indeed. Since both of the killings are identical to the imprisoned Shin, the detectives try and figure out if Shin has a hand in these latest killings. Maybe he knows who the killer is? The detectives reinterview Shin Hyun to find these answers. In trying to retrace the latest killers motives, which are too much of a coincidence due to the identical nature of the murders, they both believe Shin knows who is responsible for the latest killings. Yet, something in the nature of Shin is not right. Yes, he knows something. But what is it? Not all is what it seems in this Korean thriller. Enter a psychologist by the name of Dr. Chu Kyung-sook (Sun-kyung Kim) who has a major connection to the case. She treated Shin Hyun, yet refuses to allow the police access to the taped interviews with the now condemned Shin Hyun. Why?

Eventually, the case becomes even more frustrating as the detectives try to find the killer or killers who are still out on the streets of Seoul killing. Moreover, they believe there is a connection between this latest string of killings and Shin Hyun. But is there? And what is Dr. Chun Kyung-sook's connection to all of this? While "H" does have some intriguing and suspenseful twists in the film that I thought were very good, it also boasts some very bloody and extremely violent scenes. If you do not like gore in your films, then stay away from this film. As I wrote in the beginning, I am not into gory films, or excessively violent films. However, it is necessary in this particular film in order to advance the plot. I thought the film was a very good suspense thriller, with plenty of plot twists, and a most unusual killer. The film also boasts outstanding cinematography that one is now becoming accustomed to with many South Korean films. But once again, this is not a film that will resonate with many viewers, therefore, rent it first. [Stars: 4.5]
