Kim Jee-woon, who directed such notable films as A Tale of Two Sisters, A Bittersweet Life and The Good, the Bad, the Weird, attempts to tackle a new genre with I Saw the Devil: horror.

“I could talk for hours about ‘I Saw the Devil’, but nothing I can say will ever do it justice. The film is an experience; it’s something that will have you emotionally invested in the characters, while also covering your eyes at the extreme violence.”
