I saw the Devil

de Kim Jee-woon



For some time now, the police have been unsuccessfully trying to track down a depraved serial killer who murders for pleasure, making no distinction between women and children. When secret agent Soo-hyun’s girlfriend becomes his new victim, Soo-hyun won’t be satisfied with arresting him and a macabre game of cat and mouse begins. Kim Jee-woon, one of our favorite filmmakers, returns to Sitges again this year with a film that stares into the abyss of the crudest vengeance and turns two of the most popular actors in South Korean cinema into bloodthirsty monsters. A visceral, savage thriller that makes no concessions.


Kim Jee-woon

He worked in theater and made the big leap to cinema with The Quiet Family (98). A Sitges regular, he’s the creator of stimulating films like the spectacular The Good, the Bad, the Weird (08) or I Saw the Devil (10).
