Director Park Chan-wook’s (Oldboy) latest starring Song Kang-ho (The Host, Memories of Murder, general badass).
Beloved and devoted priest from a small town volunteers for a medical experiment which fails and turns him into a vampire. Physical and psychological changes lead to his affair with a wife of his childhood friend who is repressed and tired of her mundane life. The one-time priest falls deeper in despair and depravity. As things turns for worse, he struggles to maintain what’s left of his humanity.

Finally, there’s a video or two circulating I opted not to post as they’re far too spoilerish (but I won’t keep you from hunting ’em down yourselves).
