So Says Dick Hollywood!
First up: I Saw the Devil
Starring: Lee Byung-hun and Choi Min-sik
Directed by: Kim Jee-woon
Lee Byung-hyun (The Good, the Bad and the Weird) stars as Dae-hoon, a special agent whose pregnant wife becomes the latest victim of a disturbed and brutal serial killer, captivatingly played by Oldboy’s Choi Min-sik. Vowing revenge, Dae-hoon blurs the lines between hunter and hunted and good and evil, eventually becoming a monster himself in his twisted pursuit of revenge. From Korean genre master KIM Jeewoon (The Good, The Bad and The Weird and A Tale of Two Sisters) I SAW THE DEVIL is shockingly violent and stunningly accomplished, transcending the police procedural and pushing the boundaries of extreme Asian cinema in surprising and thrilling new ways.
Second Up: Hobo with a Shotgun
Starring: Rutger Hauer, Molly Dunsworth, Gregory Smith, and Brian Downey
Directed by: Jason Eisener
Taking cues from such cult favorites as The Class of 1984, The Warriors and
Dead End Drive-In, HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN stars Rutger Hauer as a hobo who rides the rails into a bleak and lawless town that is hopelessly overrun with crime. After witnessing a series of atrocities committed at the hands of local crime boss the Drake and his two vicious sons, the hobo cobbles together his life’s savings and buys a shotgun, embarking on a mission to clean up the town—with extreme prejudice.
And Last But Not Least: The Troll Hunter
Starring: Otto Jespersen, Hans Morten Hansen, Tomas Alf Larsen
Directed by: André Ovredal
THE TROLL HUNTER is the story of a group of Norwegian film students that set out to capture real-life trolls on camera after learning their existence has been covered up for years by a government conspiracy. A thrilling and wildly entertaining film, THE TROLL HUNTER delivers truly fantastic images of giant trolls wreaking havoc on the countryside, with darkly funny adherence to the original Norwegian folklore.
