An elegantly composed bloodbath from Korean director Chang Youn-hyun. A black garbage bag stuffed full with human body parts is found rotting under a Seoul overpass, and that's not the worst of it: Not all of the parts belong to the same body. When the rest — and a few extras — start showing up in separate bags scattered across the city, Detective Cho (Han Suk-gyu) knows he's got a serial killer on his hands, one who knows quite a bit about anatomy and dissection. Nothing seems to link the victims until Cho contacts the young woman listed as victim number three's next of kin. Su-yeon Chae (Shim Eun-ha), a beautiful museum worker, knew the victim and the other two murdered men, intimately; all were her ex-lovers. Realizing that Su-yeon holds the key to the killings, Cho focuses the investigation entirely on her, and begins to suspect one of Su-yeon's colleagues, a young media artist who's clearly obsessed with the young woman. As the investigation progresses, Cho and his team seem no closer to catching the killer, but body parts and dark secrets from Su-yeon's past continue to surface. For all the blood spilt — and there are gallons of it — this is a surprisingly understated thriller. Chang and his cinematographer, Kim Sung-bok, create a sad, melancholy mood, and while the ending might not come as a huge surprise, the journey makes for a grisly, dark bit of entertainment.
