"A splendidly demented gumbo of Hitchcock thriller, American Gothic fairy tale and a contemporary kink all Park's own." -- Guy Lodge, Variety

"Fans who have followed the Korean auteur since 2003's 'Oldboy' will not be disappointed, but a high creep-out factor and top-drawer cast also should attract genre fans who've never heard of him." -- John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

We'll chat over dinner after the movie.  Join us!

This event is co-hosted with The Red Lantern: Bay Area Asian Cinephiles.

    Given the size of the group, I'm going to make a reservation for dinner. Dinner will be about 9 p.m. The restaurant fits Yelp's "Within 4 blocks" (of the theater) and "$$ (moderate, $11-$30)" criteria, and offers vegetarian options. If you'd like to join, please RSVP to this thread and nowhere else, and please include the number of guests in your party. No dropouts, no attendance without an RSVP, and no bill splitting, please.
