January 6, 2013 (New York, NY) - RAM Releasing, a division of arthouse distributor Film Movement currently building its inaugural genre film slate, announces the VOD premiere of HIDE AND SEEK, Jung Huh’s critically acclaimed thriller that was the 8th highest grossing film at the South Korean Box office in 2013 and is the fastest grossing Korean thriller of all time.  Nominated for two Blue Dragon Film Awards, including Best Actress for Jung-hee Moon and Best New Director, HIDE AND SEEK is an electrifying debut by writer/director Jung, resulting in a new kind of South Korean thriller that recalls the work of such acclaimed modern masters as Kim-Ji Woon (I SAW THE DEVIL) and Na Hong-Jin (THE CHASER).
HIDE AND SEEK comes to the U.S. January 15, 2014 via Cable VOD from In Demand Networks, available on providers including Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox, Brighthouse and more. In addition, HIDE AND SEEK will be available on DVD from RAM Releasing on April 8, 2014, when it also begins streaming on Netflix and Amazon Instant.
Sung-soo (Son Hyun Ju, SECRETLY GREATLY) has everything: a beautiful wife and children, a comfortable home and luxury car, and plenty of money in the bank. When he learns that his estranged brother has gone missing, he visits his apartment in search of answers. Unsettled by the shabby, half-empty apartment complex, he quickly notices strange symbols inscribed under the doorbells and the terrified residents who hurriedly lock their doors at the sight of an outsider. The disturbing visit follows Sung-soo and his family home, as they soon find themselves stalked by a mysterious masked figure, and the same strange symbols appear under their doorbell. With his own nightmares escalating out of control, Sung-soo must face his most primal fears to reveal the shocking truth behind the intensifying horror.
