I viewed I Saw the Devil last night and was pretty floored. This South Korean film of revenge puts a new twist on vengeance and is the eptiome of Asian horror; instead of getting one’s revenge at one time, why not parcel it out a little at a time?
After his pregnant fiancé is brutally butchered by a serial killer Kyung Chul (played by Min-sik Choi), secret agent Kim Soo-hyeon (Byung-hun Lee) goes looking for revenge with the help of his fiancé’s father. Kim Soo devises a way to get revenge over time and seeks the killer responsible. Min-sik Choi, who has also starred in Lady Vengeance and Oldboy, is brilliant as the deranged madman and Byung-hun Lee is very convincing as the mourning boyfriend.
This movie ranges towards the more hardcore side of Asian horror and not for the faint of heart but if you enjoy movies such as Lady Vengeance then this movie is for you.
