South Korea 2007, 98 min
First and foremost, "Epitaph" is a hauntingly beautiful film, which then falls under the horror genre. Set in Japanese-occupied Korea, "Epitaph" interweaves three chilling stories: a young Korean doctor falls in love with a corpse that refuses to decay; a little girl, near catatonic after a car crash, sees horrific visions of her dead mother; and two married doctors perform autopsy on dead Japanese soldiers – all victims of a mysterious serial killer.
One of the better Korean horror films made to date, "Epitaph" could even make "A Tale of Two Sisters" seem downright ordinary.
