Synopsis

A disaster film like no other, 'End Of Animal' will terrify, exhilarate and shock in equal measure. Heavily pregnant Sun-young is in a taxi returning to her hometown Taeryong. She is sharing the taxi with a mysterious man, who appears to know a lot about her. On a deserted back road, he makes the car stop and begins counting down to zero - whereupon a cataclysmic event occurs. Upon regaining consciousness, Sun-young tries to find help, but no-one is around. Instead, a walkie-talkie in the cab begins emitting cryptic instructions, telling her to stay with the car. As she meets a range of eccentric characters, the extent of her desperate situation becomes more and more apparent. This surrealist nightmare is a gripping and absorbing psychodrama from one of the most exciting new talents to have emerged from South Korea in recent times.
