South Korea has become known for its gripping thrillers featuring psychopaths and serial killers yet Bluebeard offers something new as its mysteries unfold through the eyes of an increasingly unreliable narrator…
In a town with a history of unsolved murders, neurotic doctor Seung-hoon (Cho Jin-woong, The Handmaiden) is given cause to believe the residents of the butcher shop he lives above are processing more than just meat after spotting a bloody bag and over-hearing a half mumbled confession. Could the creepy butchers possibly be a pair of serial killers or is the doctor losing his mind? In psychological thriller Bluebeard, director Lee Soo-yeon (The Uninvited) lays a trail of gruesome hints to keep the truth just out of reach of her paranoid protagonist.
