Official US Trailer for Korean Serial Killer Thriller 'Memoir of a Murder'
"He recognized me just as I recognized him." Well Go USA has released the official US trailer for Shin-yeon Won's Memoir of a Murder, a serial killer -vs- serial killer thriller from Korea. The totally outlandish but totally Korean plot is about a former serial killer with Alzheimer's who fights to protect his daughter from her psychotic serial killer boyfriend. Yeah, that actually sounds cool, right? The cast includes Sol Kyung-Gu, Kim Nam-Gil, and Kim Seol-Hyun. From the looks of it, this is going to be as fun to watch as it is scary, with serial killers lurking everywhere. I'm actually curious about checking this out, even if the title reminds me a bit too much of Bong Joon-ho's Memories of Murder, which is a fantastic film itself. Check it.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Won Shin-yeon's Memoir of a Murder, in high def on Apple:
