Almost completely unknown outside of its home country of South Korea, SUDDENLY IN THE DARK is one of the best examples of pre-millennial K-horror. It was made at a time when censorship laws were being liberalized, igniting a boom in both horror and erotic films. Elements of both are present here, directed with bizarre flair by Ko Yeong-nam in a style often compared to the wilder Italian films of the 70s and 80s. A woman’s idyllic middle-class life is disrupted when her husband brings home a beautiful young orphan to be their maid. Odd, unexplained incidents occur, climaxing in a fever pitch of sexual jealousy, murder, and supernatural vengeance, all set to a pounding synth score. Lovingly restored with elements from the Korean Film Archive by Mondo Macabro. In Korean with English subtitles.
