“You’re dead if you touch it.” Epic Pictures has revealed an official trailer a Korean serial killer thriller titled Midnight, marking the feature debut of a filmmaker named Oh-Seung Kwon. This played at the 2021 New York Asian Film Festival, Fantasia Film Festival, and Fantastic Fest last year, and also won Best Feature at Grimmfest in the UK. A deaf mother and daughter interrupt a serial psychopath as he attempts to claim his next victim, only to find his wrath redirected toward them instead. Now a witness to the killer’s latest brutal crime, Kyung-mi is being ruthlessly hunted down. Will she survive or become his victim? Starring Wi Ha-Joon (best known as Detective Hwang from “Squid Game”), Jin Ki-Joo, Gil Hae-Yeon, Park Hoon, and Kim Hye-Yoon. Korea really loves movies about killers, there have been so many of them over the last few decades. This looks like a good spin on the usual, involving a deaf witness as the one who will bring him in.
Here’s the official US trailer (+ poster) for Kwon Oh-Seung’s Midnight, direct from YouTube:
