From its nightmarish opening to its startling denouement, Yeun Sang-ho’s Korean animé debut is a gut-wrenching experience that is rotten to the bloody core.

Two former classmates reflect upon their turbulent school days where a rich ruling elite, known as The Dogs, reigned terror over the poorer students, The Pigs.

But when a fellow Pig fights back there are deep repercussions.

Complex and raw, this brutal satire is eerily prescient even if moments like a particularly gruesome feline mauling feel gratuitous.

Rarely does an animé etch itself onto the mind so indelibly.
