Director: Shin Jung Won. Review: Adam Wing.
Shin Jung Won introduces us to a new breed of terror with Chaw, a quirky Korean thriller in which a mutant killer boar terrorises a small village; yes you read that right, a mutant killer boar. Uhm Tae Woong (Forever the Moment) and Jung Yoo Mi (Family Ties) lead the unlikely team of hunters on a quest to bring the fur-ious (sorry) beast down, mixing horror, adventure and slapstick along the way. Ecologist Soo Ryeon (Jung Yoo Mi) discovers the body parts of a girl in the mountains, and Officer Kim Kang Su (Uhm Tae Woong) is assigned to the case. He’s just arrived from Seoul because he jokingly put ‘anywhere’ on his transfer request form. Cheon Il Man (Jang Hang Seon), the victim's grandfather, is convinced that the culprit is a giant man-eating boar, and a rescue mission kicks into action when Kim's mother goes missing in the woods. Kim, Cheon, Soo Ryeon, hunter Baek and detective Shin (Park Hyuk Kwon) head to the wilds, but will they make it out alive? More importantly, why'd they make the boar so goddamn cute?...Continue reading review here.
