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, strange things begin to happen to a family and at last, the mother-in-law who suffered from auditory hallucination disappears to the cave with the legend about a mysterious creature. Will Hee-yeon find her son? Will this family find happiness again?”
Mimic was recently shown off at the Cannes Film Festival; a release is yet to be determined.
