The Guest: South Korean series about Shamanism, Possession and Exorcism. Sohn (Guest) is a powerful Demon which uses lesser Demons to possess people who then go in to kill their families. In episode one we get the back story of a taxi-driver (also a Shaman), a detective and a priest. Twenty years ago they met up on a fateful night when Sohn was loose, and struck at their families. Now in 2018 the trio meet up again, determined to vanquish Sohn. We see how people mix Shamanism with Catholicism, how even an Exorcist can fall victim to the Demon. The possessed levitate, have superhuman strength and stab themselves in the eyes when they have slain their victims. Dark, disturbing and satisfying! Directed by Hong-sun Kim, written by So-ra Kwon. On Netflix. 8/10.
