Do we have any Korean cinema fans in the house? To be quite honest, I personally think some of the best movies being produced these days are coming straight out of Korea. And one in particular intense needs-to-be-seen-to-be-believed film is BEDEVILLED.
The flick was made a few years back as the directorial debut of Chul-soo Jang and has played the festival circuit, picking up awards for Audience Choice “Best Film” & “Best Actress” at Austin’s Fantastic Fest, as well as picking up the grand prize at the 2011 Gerardmer Film Festival. And I can tell you first hand, it’s one of those classic great slow-burn revenge tales that unleashes some unholy hell for the shocking third act. Nobody does vengeance like the Koreans!
Here’s the good news. Well Go USA Entertainment is finally giving BEDEVILLED an official US release on Blu-Ray, DVD and digital platforms on October 9th. Even better? We’ve got 3 COPIES OF THE BLU-RAY to give away to our faithful ICONS readers!
