    On any number of levels, "Devil" is troublesome at best, offensive at worst. show more

    Rene RodriguezMiami Herald

    Director Kim Jee-woon's astonishing story of a serial killer who picks the wrong man's fiancée to murder, is so extreme and intense that it had to be trimmed down in its native country before it was released to theaters. We lucky westerners get to see it in all its hair-raising, stomach-churning glory, and that's a wonderful thing. show more
