Early Summer Horror Titles

2007/04/23 Source

Like Koreans enjoy specific dishes and activities in particular seasons, young Koreans have the tradition of being chilled down during the hot summer season by horror films; which compete with the spectacular blockbusters lined-up by Hollywood each summer. Early horror titles include "Black House" (Geomeun Jib) and "Evil Twin" (Jeonseolui Gohyang).

"Black House" brings together director Shin Terra ("Brainwave", 2005) and the actors Hwang Jung-min ("You are my Sunshine", 2005), Kang Shin-il ("Silmido", 2003), Yoo Sun ("The Wig" ("Sacry Hair"), 2005) and Kim Seo-hyung ("The City of Violence", 2006). The CJ Entertainment project is a co-production with the Japanese production company Kadokawa Pictures. The film is based on a book by the popular Japanese horror novelist Yűsuke Kishi, who specializes in the particular Japanese style of psychological horror. The book has been adapted into a Japanese film before. Filming wrapped-up in early April and will open in cinemas in June.

Extending the summer season, "Evil Twin" is slated for a late May premiere, making it a competitor with Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End and Spider-Man 3. "Evil Twin" is a horror film in a historical setting. The film is the feature film directorial debut of Kim Ji-hwan. The cast includes: Park Shin-hye ("Love Phobia", 2006) and Jae Hee ("Art of Fighting", 2006)". Evil Twin" is a Wintechfilm production.
