Viral videos are designed to do two things: pique the audience's interest in a particular film without giving anything away, and simultaneously heighten the mythology of the movie. I feel like this recent viral video for 's Oldboy remake accomplishes both. If you haven't seen the original film, these images are intriguing, but give away absolutely nothing. It also creates a preeminent sense of dread toward these hotel rooms, thereby solidifying the mythology. I really enjoyed 's narration, especially over 's frantic face.
