RELEASE DATE: February 14, 2017
Mondo Macabro is proud to present this classic of Korean horror on Blu-ray for the first time anywhere in the world. The presentation has been restored from the best available elements from the Korean Film Archive, and features brand new extras produced exclusively for this release (the previous edition, released in October, was limited to 500 copies).
Almost completely unknown outside its home country, Suddenly in the Dark (read our review) is one of the best examples of pre-millennial K-horror. It was made at a time when censorship laws were being liberalized, igniting a boom in horror and erotic films. Elements of both are present here, directed with bizarre flair by Go Yeong-nam in a style often compared to the wilder Italian films of the 70s and 80s.
Suddenly in the Dark stars Kim Young-ae (Confession of Murder), Yoon Il-bong (Love on a Rainy Day), Lee Gi-seon (Lost Youth), Hyeon Hye-ri (Unconditional Love) and Kim Geun-hui (Encounter).
