A sinister house deep in the forest is full of happy children ... but what lies beneath the surface?

A dark and gripping modern fairytale for adults, spinning the original Brothers Grimm story on its head.

Following a car crash on a country road, Eun-soo (Chun Jeong-myeong) is led to safety by a girl in a red cloak (Shim Eun-kyoung), to her house, deep in the forest. Accepting her family's hospitality for the night, he gradually learns that he is trapped in the woods with this strange picture perfect family and discovers the sinister story behind the seemingly innocent smiles of the children...

What the press say:

"An atmospheric chiller that also impresses as a moving reflection on parenting" - Big Issue
"As unsettling to watch as it is gorgeous to look at" - Evening Standard
"Lavish cinematography makes this K-horror a ravishingly kitsch watch and the child actors are fabulously creepy." - Metro
