Weird Movie of the Week: Gumiho

Last time on Weird Movie of the Week, we looked at a touching tale of trash men, accordions, and tiny third arms. This time, we’ve got tails. Lots of tails. It’s called My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho:

After meeting a mysterious yet very beautiful girl, a wannabe action star discovers that she’s, in fact, a gumiho — a legendary fox with nine tails — who longs to transform herself into a true human.

Alright, so technically it’s a TV show, but I think it sounds weird enough to qualify. The whole thing is available on Netflix Instant, so I guess I can add another show to my list

Update: Kaedrin friend Dave points out that an even more amazing Korean series is available on Netflix Instant. It is called (I swear I’m not making this up), Vampire Prosecutor:

Prosecutor Min Tae Yeon transforms into a vampire, but he survives by drinking blood sold on the black market rather than by preying on the living. His special powers also give him an edge in solving murder cases.

So he’s a veggie vampire that uses his powers… in the court of law! Awesome. Added to queue.

  1. I feel like TV producers in Korea are having a really good laugh cranking out stuff like this. I’ve been meaning to watch Vampire Prosecutor, which I believe is also on Netflix, but haven’t really had time yet. It’s about a prosecutor who becomes a vampire, of course, and my understanding on what I’ve read and been told is that somehow this makes him an even better prosecutor. Somehow, that seems a logical conclusion, although I’m at a loss to actually explain it.

    Time permitting, I’ll have to check this one out too. I certainly appreciate the promo shot.
