A Korean slash horror about a wronged, sickle wielding mother, hell bent on revenge. That get your attention? It sure got ours. Recently screened at this years Cannes, first time director JANG Cheol-soo’s debut feature Bedevilled has gathered some pretty favourably reviews, and ever intrigued by the prospect of a full blooded Korean slash flick, we’ve found some (seen before and some not) pics from the film. No word yet on a release date, but we’ve got em peeled for more info.
Synopsis: Hae-won is a beautiful single woman in her thirties who works at a bank in the Seoul city. She leads a busy life until she becomes a witness to an attempted murder case, and at the same time, things get complicated at work. When things get out of hand she is forced to take a vacation so she heads for ‘Moodo’, a small undeveloped island, where she had once visited to see her grandparents. And where she had befriended a girl named Bok-nam who stills writes to Hae-won asking her to visit despite the fact that Hae-won never bothered to reply. Upon arriving at the island, Hae-won is shocked to see everyone treating Bok-nam like a slave. As practically the only young woman on the island, she is a plaything for all the men and a free labourer for the women. Sick of all the inhumane treatment, Bok-nam had tried to escape the island several times in the past but had failed each time. She begs Hae-won to help her escape, but Hae-won remains indifferent not wanting to be involved in complicated situations. When Bok-nam realizes that her own daughter will follow her footsteps, she tries to escape the island with her daughter. But her daughter gets killed in the process. And when she loses the only thing that had kept her going - because of Hae-won’s negligence - Bok-nam takes a sickle in her hand to exact bloody revenge.
