While I’m sitting on a DVD screener of Kim Jee-woon’s I Saw the Devil (two reviews), I refuse to watch it until I get to see it in a cinema one more time. Thanks to Magnet Releasing we’ll see it arriving in limited theaters on March 4, and to gain attention from movie-going regulars the studio has released an artistic official one sheet that you’ll find inside.
Evil definitely lives inside.
Lee Byung-hyun (The Good, the Bad and the Weird) stars as Dae-hoon, a special agent whose pregnant wife becomes the latest victim of a disturbed and brutal serial killer, captivatingly played by Oldboy‘s Choi Min-sik. Vowing revenge, Dae-hoon blurs the lines between hunter and hunted and good and evil, eventually becoming a monster himself in his twisted pursuit of revenge. From Korean genre master Kim Jee-woon (The Good, The Bad and The Weird and A Tale of Two Sisters) Devil is shockingly violent and stunningly accomplished, transcending the police procedural and pushing the boundaries of extreme Asian cinema in surprising and thrilling new ways.
