We’re hearing some pretty terrible things about the Korean horror flick Chaw, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see for ourselves. Below you’ll find the first English-language trailer for the man-eating boar comedy. One day in a small and peaceful village Sameri, boasting no criminal cases for 10 years, a terrible accident happens. Ecologists studying wild animals on a nearby mountain, discover a collection of dismembered body parts. Policeman KIM Kang-su just transferred to Sameri from Seoul takes the case. The victim turns out a grand-daughter of Chun il-man, who was once a legendary hunter. Chun is convinced that it wasn’t a human that murdered his granddaughter but a man-eating boar, Chaw. Terrified, the people of Sameri invite one of the most famous hunters Baek to catch the Chaw. Baek leaps at the chance hoping it will prove himself to be the best ever hunter. Baek, Chun, detective Sim in charge of the case, ecologist Soo-ryun and KIM Kang-soo (whose mother is also missing) head into the deep dark mountains to confront the beast.
