Director: Sung-hee Jo
"A remarkable debut, a post-apocalyptic, existential quasi-monster movie on a shoestring budget, it recalls the darker works of Cormac McCarthy with an added supernatural tinge." - Cinephile
After picking up a man in a baseball cap, heavily pregnant Soon-young and her taxi driver realise they've invited something more frightening into the cab when the stranger starts reeling off their most intimate secrets and counting down to an unknown event. Cue a blinding flash of light and Soon-young wakes up alone with only the howls of a distant creature to accompany her.
Filmmaker Jo Sung-hee's End of Animal is a downtempo supernatural thriller of high intellectual ambition. A quietly menacing and original debut from one of South Korea's rising stars.
