While everyone likes to complain about them, the bottom line is audiences love loud noises horror movies.

Jamie Chung-starring “Eden,” the based-on-a-true-story drama about a Korean-American girl kidnapped and held in sex slavery for two years and 2012 SXSW Audience Award winner has just dropped its first trailer. While the film supposedly revolves around Chung’s manipulation of her captors and rise to power in the trafficking underworld leading to her eventual escape, the trailer leaves the plot details relatively hazy and instead provides provocative snapshots of her abduction, her introduction into a warehouse where prostitutes are kept like cattle, and her transformation into a pistol-aiming intimidator -- explanation (apparently) unnecessary. Some of us have already seen the film and concluded that it delivers everything a thrill-seeking, human rights-concerned moviegoer could hope for.
