The Silenced (2015)

Lee Hae-young directs Park Bo-young, Park Do-dam and Uhm Ji-won in this school set mystery where girls experience weird reactions in an oppressive Korean boarding school. 

Watch this one for the curated, achingly beautiful imagery as the plot is off the wall. In fact with so many characters having double names plus nicknames and looking entirely uniform it is often difficult to follow what is happening to whom. I know as a westerner exactly how that criticism translates but the reality is the nonsense plot is harder to follow when you struggle to distinguish characters. Still, on looks and mood alone this just about passes muster. And Uhm Ji-won is great as the corrupt principal.
