The Film Name ‘Exhuma’ Is “파묘’ In Korean

“파묘” means “to dig a grave(묘)”. It’s no exaggeration to say that this word captures the essence of the movie’s occult mystery.

The film was inspired by director Jang Jae-hyun‘s childhood memories of watching an old grave in the back mountain of his neighborhood being moved.

“I saw some people moved the grave because the highway was built and the mountain disappeared. I remember clearly the scene of digging up the ground and pulling out the rotten coffin, which was over 100 years old. It was a shock, a strange feeling of not wanting to see it, but wanting to see it. leven remember the smell of the dirt from the grave,” said Jang.
