Even though there’s not a trace of English subtitles to be found anywhere, it’s always good to sit back and dig on some cool behind-the-scenes footage from a monster movie. Case in point … Sector 7.
SECTOR 7 is a joint production of CJ E&M Pictures and JK Film, the production company of director Youn Je-kyun which was previously responsible for HAEUNDAE (해운대, released in the US as TIDAL WAVE), the 2009 box office smash in Korea. The film is about a group of workers on a deep sea oil prospecting platform called ‘Eclipse’, located south of Jeju Island, who struggle against a hostile undersea creature.
The lead character Cha Hae-joon (Ha Ji-won) is the marine equipment manager for the rig. Shortly before the Eclipse is to be shut down, new captain Jeong-man (Ahn Seong-gi) suggests conducting one last drilling operation. During the procedure, a new recruit sinks to the bottom of the sea when his equipment fails. Shortly thereafter, crew members begin to turn up dead, one by one, their bodies viciously mutilated.
The few remaining survivors soon discover a transparent underwater creature they encountered once before has infiltrated the ship through the drilling pipe and been feeding on the crew. Now Cha Hae-joon and her colleagues find themselves in a frantic fight for their very survival.
