Anyone who’s seen The Host needs no convincing that Korean horror movies can be incredible. Palisades Tartan is releasing a new Korean horror film around Halloween: The Butcher. The film is shot entirely using POV camera shots, akin to The Blair Witch Project, which incidentally just celebrated its 10th anniversary — does that make anyone else feel old?
The story is typically gory: A group of people wake up bloody and kidnapped by crazed producers who plan to torture and kill them to film it make a snuff film. Each shot is taken from either the killer’s or victim’s point of view.
It’s an official selection of The New York Asian Film Festival. It’s also safe to say I won’t watch it as I am entirely too chicken since my Blair Witch days, but it sounds unique and very bloody.
WARNING: THIS TRAILER IS EXTREMELY GORY AND IS NOT SUITABLE FOR MINORS.
