The unrated South Korean monster movie Sector 7 is about to make its way onto the US mainland, and we couldn’t be happier. South Korea’s first 3D horror film promises to be slick, stunning and enthralling. Really a true gift to the horror fan. Frequently compared to Joon-ho Bong’s 2006 hit The Host, Sector 7 looks to be just as effective with another mutant beast ready to raise Hades.
With the amazing success of I Saw The Devil fresh in our minds, and the proven success of The Host in their pocket, South Korea is looking for this new film to be equally as impressive. Sector 7 is the story of The Eclipse, a deep sea drilling rig running normally through their process of searching for oil, until said process starts going to shit. Suffice to say, there’s something really, really nasty in the water, and BP has nothing to do with it this time.
Sector 7 opens in limited release in the US on September 16 with an expanded showing expected in the future. Read on for movie details and cities scheduled for screenings.
Something waits 8,000 feet under the sea off the southern tip of Jeju Island. The Eclipse is the offshore drilling rig stationed at Sector 7, a mining area in the vast open sea located off the southern tip of Jeju Island. The oil drilling excavations end in failure and headquarters gives the order to withdraw. Captain Jeong-man is sent to oversee the crew’s withdrawal from the Eclipse. However, Hae-jun, the equipment manager (played by Ha Ji-won), is adamantly opposed to the headquarters order, as she is certain that oil will be discovered in Sector 7.
Motivated by Hae-jun’s conviction of finding oil, the Captain suggests conducting one last drilling exercise. While Hae-jun and the crew are fully engaged in their final attempt, they lose communication with headquarters, and the crew is overwhelmed by the disconcerting feeling that something is out there.
As bodies begin disappearing one by one, the few surviving need to think fast and fight for their lives in a non-stop battle against the mutant monster from the sea. Survival looks unlikely, but Hae-jun and the crew are determined to take any chance to get out of Sector 7 alive.
