When we saw “I Saw The Devil” at Sundance, we called it “ugly, gratuitous, sad, brutal, complex, and terrific.” The film received similarly glowing notices at TIFF and Fantastic Fest and in a few weeks Magnet will be releasing the blood-soaked revenge film in theaters. To coincide with the film’s March 4th release, the indie distributors have just relvealed a beautifully designed new poster for the film. The image (via IMP Awards), which you can check out below, is a simple typeface laid over the image of a dark figure to stunning effect. Take note American films, this is how it's done.

When we saw “I Saw The Devil” at Sundance, we called it “ugly, gratuitous, sad, brutal, complex, and terrific.” The film received similarly glowing notices at TIFF and Fantastic Fest and in a few weeks Magnet will be releasing the blood-soaked revenge film in theaters. To coincide with the film’s March 4th release, the indie distributors have just relvealed a beautifully designed new poster for the film. The image (via IMP Awards), which you can check out below, is a simple typeface laid over the image of a dark figure to stunning effect. Take note American films, this is how it's done.

The TIFF supplied synopsis:

Kyung-chul (Min-sik) is a maniacal serial killer who drives a yellow school bus and preys on young women. He captures and kills his victims, but their deaths are not the end of his madness. While the police have been aware of his actions for some time, they have never been able to put a name or face to his crimes. When the corpse of a retired police chief’s pregnant daughter surfaces, things change gears and the hunter quickly becomes the hunted. Yet it is not the girl’s father who swears vengeance, but rather her secret agent fiancé, Joo-yeon (Byung-Hyun), who decides to track down the perpetrator himself. Anyone with even the remotest information on the killer’s whereabouts is in for a bloody beating. But when his mission starts to come together, Joo-yeon morphs into quite a disturbing monster himself.

“I Saw The Devil” will receive a NY/LA run on March 4th and expand into other cities after that.
