Inspired by true events, Bong Joon Ho’s (the Oscar®-winning director of Parasite) haunting sophomore feature follows two vastly different detectives in a small province of South Korea in 1986 who are eager to catch a brutal serial killer roaming the streets.

After two women are found brutally murdered, Seoul detective Park Doo-man (Song Kang-Ho) is brought in to help inept local detective Seo Tae-yoon (Kim Sang-kyung) investigate these horrific crimes. However, when the body count begins to rise and a pattern emerges, the pair realise they are chasing the country’s first documented serial killer, and that they’ll need to rely on their basic skills to piece together the clues and solve the case before the killer strikes again.

Recalling crime classics such as Zodiac and Seven, Memories of Murder is an unsettling anti-procedural that blends true-crime with social satire and even dark comedy in Bong Joon Ho’s typically masterful fashion.
