It's Giant Korean Pigs Run Amok In Chaw

For a couple weeks now I have been hinting at a couple of films that feature giant killer pigs, and now I've finally gotten a chance to write about one of them.

Over the past decade film makers in Korea have really begun to make some first class horror and monster films. Westerners first started to take notice with the 1999 release of "The Ring Virus", which is a remake of the Japanese horror film "Ringu," which you probably know from the American remake, "The Ring." Many critics view the Korean version as the best of the bunch. Then, of course, there is Bong Joon-ho's giant monster film, "The Host", which again was praised by critics and fans alike. The Korean giant monster film, "D-War", didn't gain as much praise, but it did feature state of the art effects and it was a huge box office success in Asian countries.

Now there is yet another film from Korea that is starting to get some attention called "Chaw." The film features another giant monster, this time a wild hog, on a murderous rampage. The effects, once again, look very impressive, and from the trailer I gather that the film could be on the same level as "The Host", but it's hard to get a true feel from just seeing a few images.

Here's the film's synopsis:

One day in the small, peaceful village of Sameri, boasting no criminal cases for 10 years, a terrible accident happens. Ecologists studying wild animals on a nearby mountain discover a collection of dismembered body parts. Policeman Kim Kang-su, just transferred to Sameri from Seoul, takes the case. The victim turns out to be a grand-daughter of Chun Il-man, who was once a legendary hunter. Chun is convinced that it wasn’t a human that murdered his granddaughter but a man-eating boar, Chaw. Terrified, the people of Sameri invite one of the most famous hunters, Baek, to catch the Chaw. Baek leaps at the chance, hoping it will prove himself to be the best ever hunter. Baek, Chun, detective Sim in charge of the case, ecologist Soo-ryun and Kim (whose mother is also missing) head into the deep dark mountains to confront the beast.
