That’s right, kids! The insane little flick I Saw the Devil has nabbed itself a limited theatrical release set for March 4th, 2011, courtesy of our favorite crazies over at Magnet Releasing.
As always Magnet will also offer a VOD run for the film to coincide with the theatrical release, and word is still pending on just when that will be. It should also be noted that I Saw the Devil will be playing at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival, taking place January 20-30, 2011, in Park City, Utah, as part of its Park City at Midnight run. Stay tuned for more.
The film, labeled as a hard-boiled thriller, stars Choi Min-sik as a psychopathic serial killer up against Lee Byung-hun (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) as a special agent whose fiancée becomes one of his victims. Lee’s cool-headed and intelligent character in turn becomes a monster in order to avenge the killing.
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), I SAW THE 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.
