Fans of Bong Joon-ho's Korean monster movie The Host will be excited to know the filmmaker is returning to his genre roots with his latest offering, Mother.

The title, which finds a Korean mother investigating a gruesome murder her 27 year old son was framed for, sounds kind of like an episode of Murder She Wrote for obvious reasons, but after checking out the trailer, I'd say those comparisons are pretty silly. The film looks to be more thriller than straight up horror, but Bong pulled off a similar balancing act quite effectively in The Host--a feature that was one part monster movie, one part domestic drama.
