Creepy Kids Inhabit South Korea’s ‘THE MIMIC’ Trailer
Pre-teen terror is an international issue.
Unleashed in South Korea late last year, Director Huh Jung’s creepster THE MIMIC now has a U.S. release date. And we’ve got the trailer.
Loosely based on the Jangsan Tiger legend, the story concerns a supernatural force who mimics the voices of loved ones to lure its victims close enough to attack. It’s an urban legend rumored to originate from Jangsan, a mountain near the city of Busan.
Director Huh Jung previously helmed the 2013 low-budget Korean hit HIDE AND SEEK, which was nominated for numerous awards at Korean festivals. THE MIMIC is set for release from Well Go USA on June 12th in select US theaters and VOD. It stars Yum Jung-Ah, Park Hyuk-Kwon and Lee Jun Hyeok.
I’ve always been a sucker for creepy kid flicks, so let’s hope THE MIMIC offers more in the way of adolescent anarchy. We’ll see.
For now, warn your Babysitter and enjoy the poster and trailer below.
