THE GUARD POST (14 July)

Directed by Gong Su-chang, a squad of Korean soldiers is sent to investigate a guard post that overlooks the DMZ.

After Hee-jin's younger sister So-jin, who is possessed by a spirit, disappears, the neighbours die one by one and a secret underlying their deaths is revealed.

GONJINAM (28 July)

This film follows the crew of a horror web series who travels to an abandoned asylum for a live broadcast. They soon encounter much more than expected as they move deeper inside the nightmarish old building.
