ACF 199: Korean Horror Flick "Voices" set to open in 31 U.S. cities Friday

I just received the following info from Yuni Cho at The Korea Society. Wanted to pass it on for you horror fans in New York and the other 30 U.S. cities where VOICES will be screening. Those of you elsewhere will have either have to road-trip or wait for the Lionsgate DVD, I guess.

And while you really can't judge a film by its trailer, the one for VOICES makes it look very promising. We'll have to find out, won't we?

Korean horror film VOICES aka DU SARAM-YIDA / 두사람이다 will open in theaters in 31 US cities on Friday January 9, 2009. The film will be released with 7 other horror films through After Dark Films’ third installment of Horrorfest "8 Films to Die For," playing during a 1 week period in selected theaters nationwide. Lionsgate will release the film on DVD. The film stars Jin-seo Yun (Oldboy, Lady Vengeance, The Moonlight of Seoul), Ki-Woo Lee (Crazy Waiting, Woman on the Beach) and Gi-woong Park. It was produced by Moo Ryung Kim (Lies, Memories of Murder) and directed by Ki-hwan Oh (Art of Seduction, Sun Mool).

VOICES is based on the best-selling Korean comic book series “DU SARAM-YIDA", and it’s the eerie tale of a young girl who bears witness to a shocking act of violence at a wedding party. For no apparent reason, the groom throws the bride from a high balcony, setting into motion a macabre chain of events. Overnight, brutal murders become everyday occurrences as friends turn on friends, brothers turn on sisters, and husbands turn on wives. The young girl believes she is cursed and must discover the mystery behind these killings before she too becomes a victim.
