Official US Trailer for South Korean Supernatural Thriller 'The Closet'
"Take me with you…" Dark Sky Films has released an official US trailer for the Korean horror thriller The Closet, directed by Kwang-bin Kim. This already opened in South Korea in February this year, and arrives in the US to watch this fall. After Sang-Won's daughter Yi-Na goes missing in their new home, a mysterious man approaches him and tells him to look for her in the closet. The film is about a man who grows apart from his daughter following the death of his wife, and a mysterious exorcist who helps the man find his missing daughter. The supernatural film stars Jung-woo Ha, Yool Heo, Nam-gil Kim, and Si-ah Kim. The looks like it's borrowing some horror concepts from Poltergeist and Insidious and working them into a story of a grieving father. However, I don't know why this trailer is dubbed in English - very strange choice.
Here's the official US trailer (+ original poster) for Kwang-bin Kim's The Closet, direct from YouTube:

Yeah, I don't like it in English, too. Other than that, I like Asian cinematographies more and more every day. But I still remain cautious when it comes to ordinary horror tropes. Which we have here ...
