questions
- why they say the truck is red, but truck is actually black?
- why they switched mink, with the mother for the ceremony?
- who cut off bayan head?
- did the mother get possessed by bayan in the end? what was that?
- the scene when burning the mother — why show a voodoo doll?
- final scene, for the last interview with the medium, she says she not sure if bayan is even real. what it means?

means maybe they found out bayan may be evil after all.

symbolic? red = vengeance?

mother wanna tank for daughter
- who cut off bayan head?
who? u mean the male medium?
- did the mother get possessed by bayan in the end? what was that?
nope....should be the evil spirits
- the scene when burning the mother — why show a voodoo doll?
the voodoo doll is made by the mink's dad family factory....the family killed a lot of people last time....the needles all piercing the doll = piercing the family
- final scene, for the last interview with the medium, she says she not sure if bayan is even real. what it means? she not sure whether she is really the chosen one...or due to the events of Mink....she not even sure if there is a bayan that should be protecting them

The first 3/4 of the movie was fantastic. Set up a good story of mystery plus some good horror tone without overusing hollywood tropes.

Just that some of the decision making is on par with hollywood movie levels of dumb.
You need to keep the door locked until the ceremony is over but leave only one guy to guard?

Also, literally the day before, your baby was kidnapped, maybe find another home to put your wife and baby in and let the master's people guard the house?

Also, take so long to install lock. SMLJ. I know the lock proved useless but wait so long before deciding "maybe better lock her in".

I think this movie can be interpreted as the origin story of an evil medium/shaman. Na Hong-Jin mentioned in this interview that he was thinking of how the "evil" shaman in the Wailing could have come about as the inspiration to this film.
So the title is actually referring to Mink and not something generic. In that sense, I guess the reason how the evil medium came to be in this show is due to:
  • Mink has the attributes to become a shaman from her mother's line
  • A powerful curse from her father's line, that might have become sentient.
The opening of the show mentions the belief of the people is that there is spirit in everything, even house, mountain, and forest. So why not a curse.
I'm still wondering how the entity possessing Mink knows the history of her uncle and mum, given that the mum married to the husband after successfully avoiding being Ba Yan's shaman.

Just watched this movie. The only scenes worth the ticket price are the sex scenes.
