This horror classic involves a housewife’s descent into madness. Seon-hee leads a comfortable life with husband Yu-jin and their daughter, but worries that he is losing interest in her. Enter beautiful Mi-ok, daughter of a deceased shamaness. Found homeless, Yu-jin takes her in as a maid. Initially inexplicably drawn to Mi-ok, Seon-hee becomes disturbed after encountering her doll. Having had recurring visions of it prior to Mi-ok’s arrival, its presence triggers hallucinations that drive Seon-hee mad with suspicion of an affair between Mi-ok and Yu-jin. Employing a tale of jealousy to depict psychic repression, the film portrays a woman so imprisoned by conventional sexuality that she destroys the very domestic security she seeks to protect.
