The Devil Is On His Way



The Demonic Thriller Arrives On Blu-ray Disc And DVD
May 10 From Magnolia Home Entertainment

Renowned Korean director Kim Ji-Woon (The Good, The Bad, The Weird) delivers a "brutally violent yet beautiful" (FEARnet) story that follows a highly dangerous psychopath who kills for pleasure in I Saw The Devil, debuting May 10 on Blu-ray Disc and DVD from Magnolia Home Entertainment. Starring Lee Byung-Hun (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and Choi Min-Sik (Oldboy), the terrifying drama explores the dark side of human nature with shocking violence and savagery.

Kyung-Chul (Min-Sik) has committed shocking serial murders involving disturbing techniques on his victims. While the police have chased him for years, they have been unable to catch him. When special agent Kim's (Byung-Hun) pregnant fiancée goes missing, he pieces together evidence that points towards Kyung-Chul and will stop at nothing to take bloody vengeance. Struggling to balance the scales of good and evil, Kim finds his sanity at risk in his quest for the ultimate revenge. Flooring audiences during its premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, the film received rave reviews with its perfect blend of action and horror.

"Not a film for squeamish viewers" (Screen Rant), the I Saw The Devil Blu-ray Disc and DVD are loaded with gory bonus features including a behind-the-scenes featurette and deleted scenes. The Blu-ray Disc and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.98 and $26.98, respectively.


I Saw The Devil is a shockingly violent and stunningly accomplished tale of murder and revenge from Korean genre master Kim Ji-Woon. Choi Min-Sik plays Kyung-Chul, a dangerous psychopath who kills for pleasure. The embodiment of pure evil, he has committed horrifying and senselessly cruel serial murders on defenseless victims, successfully eluding capture by the police.

On a freezing, snowy night, his latest victim is the beautiful Ju-yeon, daughter of a retired police chief and pregnant fiancée of elite special agent Soo-Hyun (Byung-Hyun). Obsessed with revenge, Soo-Hyun decides to track down the murderer, even if doing so means becoming a monster himself. And when he finds Kyung-Chul, turning him in to the authorities is the last thing on his mind as the lines between good and evil fall away in this diabolically twisted game of cat and mouse.
