Psychiatric wards and mental institutions are already creepy as a standalone, what more if it is closed down 15 years ago?
Near the tiny city of Gwanju in Gyeonggi-do, just a 40-minute drive south of Seoul, lies Gonjiam Psychiatric Hospital. Once a place for recovery, the abandoned facility is now on a relapse looking like it was taken straight out of a horror movie – with tarnished doors, tattered windows, and rotten furniture.
Aside from its crumbling shell, the eeriness of the place is made even stronger by the tell tales circulating the institution. Legends persists that for ten years, mentally ill patients and staffs of the hospital were suddenly dying for no explainable reason. And as time passes by, more and more stories started to build up like skeletons in Gonjiam’s closet – hideous experiments, mad doctors offing of staffs and patients, tortured souls lingering the hospital walls, and many other supernatural occurrences.
Are you willing to brave the rooms inside one of South Korea’s most haunted places and one of the 7 freakiest places in the world according to CNN? Experience the horror of Gonjiam coming soon in movie theatres 19 April!
Gonjiam Haunted Asylum is a scary movie directed by Jung Bum-Sik, who is also known for his works in many Korean horror movies such as Epitaph, Horror Stories, and Horror Stories II. The film is starred by Wi Ha-Jun, Park Sung-Hun, Lee Seung-Wook, Oh Ah-Yeon, and Park Ji-Hyun.
