Ildira Peterson This is my favorite Korean Thriller movie from 2014. It contained all the elements I look forward in a movie (action, drama, suspense, mystery, and comedy). I don't agree with previous negative reviews regarding Monster (Mon-seu-teo). An Excellent job. It kept my attention since the beginning to end. I have been trying to purchase this movie but I see its still not available on DVD for Region 1 USA customers. Please let me know when this movie is available on DVD so I can purchase it for my own personal library. ( Keep up your Amazing talented work, and don't worry about the negative reviews, when in my families eyes this is our number 1 Korean Thriller movie of all time. Thank you Mrs Peterson

Titi Adha After watching the film, I finally realize why people are disappointed about the genre. I think the mistake is in the backsound =_=;

Jungle_fish I just love the movie. Maybe some people think that it's weird movie but I think it's kind like 'not intense thriler', that the director puts some of comedy to make the situation back to normal. It's my 1st time, I laugh in some scenes in the thriler

Jane The version with eng sub is on YouTube. I just started watching it now so no comment yet....

Louisanna Wish I could see it and judge for myself. But can't seem to find a version with english subtitles except for the trailer. Sad, especially since I am a Lee Minki fan.

tanchan the worst movie that i ve ever seen

Rully This movie is weird,, you must see "the raid 2 "is more than that

tan daebak.. ilove this movie.. blend of horror, comedy, heart warm drama, very touching,, but no romance between Min Ki and Go Eun, i hope they meet again in romance movie..

Zen-Fu This movie is weird. I just finished watching it twenty minutes ago. There's a lot going on with nothing going on. It's one part horror, one part comedy, one part drama, one part action, one part revenge story, and one part feel-good movie. However, most of the film is spent with Bok-Soon and Na-Ri just walking around, trying to avoid being caught by Tae-Soo. They introduced some interesting concepts that never pay off. All in all, I didn't leave the theater hating the movie, so I guess that's a good thing. I give Monster a C-

Maggie I just saw this movie at CGV Cinemas in LA yesterday. Although I don't regret seeing it, it was different from what I expected. Although I did not mind the comedy aspect, but I expected more... Of a hunt part from the sister. I do not want to give anything away, but anyone who has seen this movie will know what I'm talking about.

Jeylani Hussein Lee Minki is awesome actor #100 kool.

John I watched this movie in lotte cinema in busan.... I give this movie a 3/10, This movie director focused too much on diversity, trying mix elements of action, horror, drama, and comedy all at the same time, which it is supposed to give you a wave of up and down emotions in which the director made a good job but the horror part was really poor, there was no built in suspense, everything was predictable, the horror atmosphere of the movie is very poor (image quality is similar to dramas) and the only "horrific" thing about the movie is the sudden forced horror sounds that kills the drama feeling of the movie.

hyunlena @kh" - How is this a horror-comedy? Nothing in the trailer is comical, and the storyline isn't either.

Anyway, I can't wait for this! It looks really good.

Francisco DeCastro This is going to be like an artistic suspense thriller. At least that is what I got from the trailer. It seems like the killer also has a story of his own. It also seems like they are shooting for us to have some compassion towards him as well. That's what I got from the part that it shows him looking at himself in the mirror and the part that he is sitting on the bathroom tub. Should be good. I will have to wait and buy the DVD I guess or something.

kh" ummmm

I like Lee Min-Ki, but I don't know form the trailer looks form me it's a horror-comedy movie

isn't it ?
