YesAsia Editorial Description

Murder victims return to life to take revenge for their deaths in Kwak Kyung Taek's RV: Resurrected Victims, which is based on Park Ha Ik's 2012 novel It Is Over. Eleven years after Sunflower, Kim Hae Suk (New Trial) and Kim Rae Won (The Prison) again play mother and son in the mystery thriller about a resurrected mother who attempts to kill her son. A surreal mix of mystery, suspense and fantasy, RV: Resurrected Victims also features Sung Dong Il (Real), Jeon Hye Jin (Revivre) and Jang Young Nam (Confidential Assignment).

Prosecutor Seo Jin Hong (Kim Rae Won) has been hunting the criminal who killed his mother Myung Sook (Kim Hae Suk) seven years ago. Meanwhile, murder victims from all around the world come back to life to avenge their deaths. Myung Sook is also one of the resurrected victims. However, rather than seeking revenge on her killer, she aims to put Jin Hong to death. Myung Sook's bizarre behavior leads to speculation that Jin Hong is the real culprit.

억울한 죽음 뒤 복수를 위해 살아 돌아온 자
세상은 그들을 ‘희생부활자’ (RV: Resurrected Victims)라 부른다.
그리고 오늘, 죽은 엄마가 살아 돌아와 나를 공격했다!

7년 전, 오토바이 강도 사건으로 살해당했던 엄마(김해숙)가 집으로 돌아왔다는 전화를 받은 검사 진홍(김래원). 믿을 수 없는 현실에 충격도 잠시, 엄마 명숙이 진홍을 공격한다.

전 세계 89번째이자 국내 첫 번째로 판명된 희생부활사건!
국정원은 모든 목격자와 언론을 통제하려 들고, 신고를 받은 경찰은 진홍을 명숙 사건의 진범으로 의심하기 시작한다. 이에 진홍은 스스로 엄마의 죽음에 얽힌 진실을 밝혀내려 하는데…

7년 전 사건의 숨은 진실이 밝혀진다!

■ 감상 포인트
2017년 가장 충격적인 소재의 영화 <희생부활자>
박하익 작가의 화제의 원작 [종료되었습니다]를 <친구>의 곽경택 감독이 영화화!
김래원, 김해숙, 성동일, 전혜진 충무로 연기파 배우들의 열연!

영화 <희생부활자>는 그간 스크린에서 찾아볼 수 없었던 신선한 소재로 관객들의 호기심을 자극한다. 곽경택 감독은 박하익 작가의 소설 『종료되었습니다』를 읽고 희생부활자(RV)라는 설정에 단번에 매료되었다.

희생부활자(RV)는 억울한 죽음을 당한 후 진짜 범인을 심판하기 위해 살아 돌아온 사람들을 일컫는 말로 비슷한 유형의 작품들이 없을 정도로 소재의 참신함이 돋보인다.

그간 영화 <친구>, <극비수사>등 현실적인 소재와 인간미 넘치는 캐릭터로 관객들을 사로잡아왔던 충무로 이야기꾼 곽경택 감독은 독특하고 새로운 소재에 갈증을 느껴왔고, 소설을 읽자 마자 “세상에 이런 이야기가 나올 수 있구나”라는 신선한 충격과 함께 영화화를 결심했다.

충무로 최고의 연기파 배우들로 영화 팬들의 인정을 받은 김래원, 김해숙, 성동일, 전혜진이 출연해 영화 <희생부활자>의 설정을 보다 현실적이고 무게감 있는 영화로 완성했다.

상상의 한계를 벗어난 색다른 미스터리 스릴러!
한국적인 정서와 미스터리 스릴러의 조화 그리고 감동까지!

곽경택 감독은 죽었던 사람이 살아 돌아온다는 믿기 힘든 초현실적 소재에 몇 가지 설정을 덧대어 이야기의 흥미를 높이는 작업에 주력했다. 긴 고민 끝에 곽경택 감독의 선택은 물과 불이었다. 물과 불은 인간의 삶에 필수불가결의 요소들이고, 인간들이 마음대로 제어할 수도 없다. 언제나 우리 곁에 있지만 제어가 쉽지 않다는 점에서 RV현상을 관객들이 자연스럽게 받아들일 수 있겠다는 점도 한 몫 했다.

영화 속 희생부활자(RV)들은 비가 갑작스레 많이 오는 날 예고도 없이 등장한다. 생명체 근원의 가장 첫 번째 조건이 물이라는 점에서 착안해 비가 오는 날을 희생부활자(RV) 등장의 조건으로 설정한 것.

한국인의 정서를 관통하는 감정을 담은 묵직한 드라마에서 탁월한 기량을 발휘해온 곽경택 감독. 그는 미스터리 스릴러 장르에서도 그의 장기를 십분 발휘했다. 영화 속 엄마 ‘명숙’은 7년 만에 살아 돌아와 모두를 놀라게 하고, 이어 가장 끔찍이 아끼던 아들 ‘진홍’을 공격하며 주위를 더욱 큰 충격에 몰아 넣는다. 복수를 위해서 살아 돌아온다는 희생부활자(RV) 사례들을 미루어 보았을 때, 엄마의 죽음에 진홍이 얽혀 있다고 모두가 의심할 수밖에 없는 상황, 진홍의 끈질긴 추격 끝에 드러나는 사건의 전말은 결말부에 이르러 관객들에게 생각지 못했던 반전과 함께 예상치 못한 감동까지 전한다.
특히 곽경택 감독은 ‘명숙’과 ‘진홍’ 모자의 관계에서 뜨거운 감동을 이끌어내는 데 이는 김래원, 김해숙의 리얼한 모자 케미 덕분이었다고 회상한다. 실제 두 배우는 영화 <해바라기>와 드라마 [천일의 약속]에 이어 세 번째로 모자 호흡을 맞춘 것이다.

“내겐 그냥 엄마다. 개인적으로도 엄마와 아들로 지내는 사이이기 때문에 모자 연기에 대한 준비가 따로 필요하지 않았을 정도다”라는 김래원과 “감정을 끌어내기 위해 노력하지 않아도 눈빛만 봐도 모자의 정이 나왔다. 정말 최고의 호흡이었다”는 김해숙의 말은 두 사람이 보여줄 리얼한 모자 케미스트리를 더욱 기대하게 만든다.

한국형 미스터리 스릴러의 대표작 <희생부활자>의 DVD 출시!

스크린과 동일한 2.35:1 아나몰픽 와이드 스크린의 화면 비율과 한국어 5.1 돌비디지털 채널의 오디오로 미스터리, 스릴러 장르 특유의 긴장감을 극대화 시키는 <희생부활자> DVD가 오는 2월 9일 출시 된다.

최고의 열연을 펼친 배우들의 연기를 볼 수 있으며, 최상의 오디오로 스릴러 영화가 주는 긴장감을 극장에서 보다 더 크게 느낄 수 있다. 비오는 날 감상하면 두 배로 재미있는 <희생부활자> DVD를 지금 바로 만나보자!

Professional Review of "RV: Resurrected Victims (DVD) (Korea Version)"

March 28, 2018

RV: Resurrected Victims is the latest offering from Korean writer director Kwak Kyung-taek, probably still best known for the much-loved classic Friend back in 2001, and its belated follow-up Friend: The Great Legacy in 2013. Based on the 2012 novel It is Over by Park Ha-ik, the film is a mystery drama set against a backdrop of murder victims coming back to life and pursuing justice, with Kim Hae-suk (New Trial) and Kim Rae-won (The Prison) reuniting some eleven years after their mother-son pairing in Kang Seok-beom’s Sunflower, the twist here being that he stands accused of being her killer.

After opening with an old woman called Myung-sook (Kim Hae-suk) being murdered by a helmet-wearing criminal during what seems to be a botched bag-snatching, the film jumps forward seven years, to a world where murder victims around the globe are returning from the grave to seek generally violent reckoning for their deaths, something which the authorities are keeping under wraps as best they can. Meanwhile, Myung-sook's son Seo Jin-hong (Kim Rae-won) has now become a top prosecutor, known for chasing the harshest penalties for criminals, and still obsessed with catching his mother's killer. Jin-hong is understandably shocked when his sister calls him to tell him their mother has come home, even more so when Myung-sook tries to kill him, effectively marking him as her murderer. With his mother locked up for safe keeping and experiments, Jin-hong sets out to find the real villain, while female detective Lee Soo-hyun (Jeon Hye-jin, Revivre) investigates his own connection to the case.

On paper, RV: Resurrected Victims has all the ingredients for a great high-concept thriller, and it certainly opens strongly, with some great scenes from around the world of the dead coming back to life and exacting revenge. However, it doesn't take long for Kwak Kyung-taek to shift gears dramatically, and rather than the kind of Train to Busan style action horror suggested by the cover art and premise, the film quickly becomes a more standard murder mystery affair, and a melodramatic one at that. Indeed, Kwak shows very little interest in exploring the RV phenomenon itself or why it's happening across the world, and, perhaps even more bizarrely, ignores any of the social commentary or wider concerns which might stem from its world-altering premise. The film's literal English title Revival suits it far better, as the focus is firmly on its mother-son conundrum and the teary revelations which result, dealing with themes of atonement and understanding rather than revenge. Of course, there's something to be said for this kind of small-scale and more personal approach, though it's hard not to get distracted by the many fascinating unanswered questions lurking in the background.

Judged on its own merits, the central mystery is solid enough, and Kwak does manage to use the RV conceit to generate dramatic tension as to Jin-hong's role in his mother’s death. Although it's a fairly standard plot once the supernatural trappings are set aside, the film does have a great deal going on, and the script packs in a number of twists and turns into its surprisingly short ninety-minute running time. Whilst on the plus side this means it works pretty well as a police procedural, Kwak does get somewhat carried away with his side characters and red herrings, in particular spending far too much time on a Chinese suspect identified early on, despite the fact that most viewers will be only too aware that bigger revelations are coming. It’s essentially this which is the film's main narrative problem, as for all its cunning machinations and the dual investigations of Jin-hong and Soo-hyun, it's clear that information is being held back about its protagonist and that a last act denouement (along with the obligatory flashback montage) is coming. This isn't to say that the story isn't engaging, though the film does feel convoluted in places, and there's no getting around the fact that its plot simply isn't as interesting as its background concept.

All of this perhaps wouldn't be much of an issue if it weren't for the film's premise of the murdered dead coming back for revenge or the misleading way it's being sold, and in fairness RV: Resurrected Victims is a perfectly respectable mystery melodrama. Well-directed, acted and with polished production values, there's enough here to hold the interest, if not to get particularly moved by – at least for viewers not expecting another Train to Busan or an hour and a half of undead action.
