i saw the devil poster Red Band Trailer For Kim Ji Woon’s Revenge Thriller ‘I Saw the Devil’   Starring Lee Byung hun & Choi Min sik

IGN have delivered this deeply sinister Red Band trailer for Kim Ji-woon‘s (The Good, the Bad, the Weird, A Bitter Sweet Life) latest film ‘I Saw the Devil.’ I’ve been anticipating this film for a while now, I’m a massive fan of Ji-woon, ‘A Bitter Sweet Life’ is undoubtedly one of my favourite films of the last decade. Be warned though, ‘I Saw The Devil’ has caused controversy in South Korea due to the level of violence depicted in the flick, it look’s brutal, definitely not one for the faint of heart! ‘I Saw The Devil’ is set for release March 4th in the US. Not sure of a UK release date at the moment.

A remorseless psychopath stalks deserted roads looking for women to rape and slaughter. But when he murders the pregnant fiancée of a secret-service agent, the tables turn, and the stalker becomes the prey as the grief-stricken agent pursues a gruesome revenge. Soo-hyun hunts down the killer but does not turn him over to the authorities. Instead, he exacts a punishment designed to make the psycho truly suffer. The sadistic mayhem escalates as the pair enact a gory cat-and-mouse game that quickly spirals out of control.

As excellently crafted as it is blood soaked, Kim Jee-woon’s hard-edged revenge thriller leaves an indelible mark on its audience. The brutality and unrelenting violence of I Saw the Devil is only half as jarring as its unflinching portrait of the dark side of human nature.
