Joel David Moore to direct remake of Korean horror-thriller Hide and Seek

Cj Entertainment has announced that Joel David Moore (Avatar, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) has been tapped to direct the company’s remake of the 2013 hit Korean social horror-thriller Hide and Seek.

Moore, who most recently directed the dramedy Youth in Oregon starring Frank Langella, Billy Crudup and Christina Applegate, will write an adapted feature English-language screenplay for Hide and Seek in addition to directing.

The film is described as a social horror-thriller that builds upon themes related to the widening gap between the upper 1% and the lower class. It follows a man searching for his long-lost brother who stumbles upon a secret world of squatters living in the homes of unsuspecting tenants – a revelation that becomes all the more menacing when his home becomes the next target.

Korean Horror Pic Hide And Seek Getting The Remake Treatment From Joel David Moore

Korean horror pic Hide and Seek is bound for Hollywood, and Avatar‘s Joel David Moore has been placed in control of the English-language remake.

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Moore will now adapt and direct Hide and Seek for Cj Entertainment. Initially released in 2013, Huh Jung’s social horror-thriller grossed more than $35 million in Korea alone, so it’s no wonder Hollywood executives have been circling.

No further details were disclosed about the project’s timeline, but a remake of this size will likely have a relatively quick turnaround. Either way, Joel David Moore will be building on the directorial experience he gained on Youth In Oregon, the 2016 drama starring Frank Langella and Justice League‘s Billy Crudup.

Hide and Seek is, of course, a completely different kettle of fish, as Deadline describes the project as a “social horror-thriller that centered on a man searching for his long-lost

~ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International

'Big Brother 19' Recap: Does Jason Betray Kevin?
It's fitting that this episode of Big Brother 19 features the Hide and Seek Power of Veto competition, which always results in the house being completely destroyed. That's a good metaphor for this season, as the horrific gameplay and bitter personal attacks have turned the season into a total mess. The plan to betray Matt and Raven is in place, but a new potential target emerges after weeks of Paul planting seeds to turn everyone against Kevin.

Review: The Mimic, A Slick and Spirited Addition to K-Horror

Four years after his strong debut Hide and Seek, director Huh Jung returns to a mid-August release date with his follow-up The Mimic. With better-than-average casting, this chilling and polished countryside take on a local urban legend may be the best Korean horror film in several years yet due to a problematic script it falls short of the genre's heyday over a decade ago. Some time after the disappearance of her son, Hee-yeon moves to the countryside with her husband, daughter and sick mother-in-law. Shortly after moving in, a body is found in a mysterious walled up room in the nearby woods, while at the same time a lost little girl turns up. Hee-yeon takes the mute girl in, but she begins to mimic the...

Liff Short Take Special Reviews: What to see at London Indian Film Festival

This year’s London Indian Film Festival boasts an incredible selection of film viewing over the next week. Not sure what to choose? Here are a few bite sized mini-reviews to whet your appetite.

The Cinema Travellers — directed by Shirley Abraham and Amit Madheshiya

Last year I had the pleasure of screening the Liff 2016 presentation of the Bengali film Cinemawala, which presented a fictional view of the decline of the traditional Indian cinema hall in the face of changing technology and an ever growing market in pirated films. This year, Liff 2017 presents the documentary The Cinema Travellers, directed by Shirley Abraham and Amit Madheshiya, which touches on a similar theme: the decline of travelling film projectors and their operators, again in face of a changing technological landscape.

The film made a stunning debut at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016 and has gone on to screen to enthusiastic and appreciate audiences

She comes across a young girl in the forest, and takes her in. Soon, the girl starts to mimic Hee-yeon’s lost child, other strange things begin happening around them, and it looks like the film is creeping towards a potentially tragic finale.

Why Swimfan Is the Most Underrated Thriller of the 2000s

Why Swimfan Is the Most Underrated Thriller of the 2000s
Fifteen years ago, Swimfan came to the big screen. Made for $10 million, Swimfan grossed $34 million worldwide. This tale of a swimmer (Jesse Bradford) who engages the wrong girl (Erika Christensen) in a one night stand, was essentially Fatal Attraction for the teen set. And, as hyperbolic as this may sound, it was also the best film of 2002. Even if it doesn't make IMDb's most underrated list for the Aughts.

Okay, so it came nowhere near an Academy Award nomination. Hell, it didn't even pick up an MTV Movie Awards nod. Does anybody believe that the best picture winner for any given year is really The best picture? If we ignore that idea altogether, then it is plausible Swimfan was indeed the best overall film released all throughout 2002. It may not have done the biggest box office, barely anyone remembers it now, but what it did in a cerebral sense, and with its visceral imagery,

Here is the first official image from Korean creature-feature Mimic

Some of the best horror/thrillers in the world come out of South Korea, and it looks like another unsettling movie is on the horizon in the form of director Jung Huh’s (Hide and Seek) creature-feature Mimic. The first official still from the movie has arrived online for our viewing pleasure, courtesy of Bloody-Disgusting:

Not much to see here, but it becomes quite creepy once one reads an official synopsis for the film:

“Hee-yeon moves to her hometown near Mt. Jang, wishing her mother-in-law remembers how she lost Hee-yeon’s longing son, Jun-suh. One day, near a cave at Mt. Jang, Hee-yeon meets a girl in tatter and reminds of Jun-suh. Feeling sympathy, Hee-yeon decides to spare a bed until she finds a girl’s parents. Gradually, the girl mimics Hee-yeon’s daughter, Jun-hee’s name, voice, and look; eventually, calling Hee-yeon, mom. As the girl enters the house,
