The First Look At The Giant Razorback From Jeong-won Shin's "Chaw"

It has become quite evident that film makers in South Korea have fallen in love with good old fashioned monster movies and at this present time, they are making some of the best ones. Better than the ones being made in Japan, and even better than some of the ones being made here in the good old USA.

I know that's saying a lot, but the Korean film industry has been doing a great job with monster films as of late.

One of these better than expected Korean films, is Jeong-won Shin's giant boar on the loose film, entitled "Chaw." Little has been released about the film here on this side of the Pacific, but it has done very well in the Asian market (the film was released in theaters on July 15th) and has now reached the import DVD retailers.

Our very own Avery Guerra was able to find several images from the film, even some of the coveted giant swine himself.

Now maybe you noticed this too, is it my imagination, or could you easily replace the Korean actors in these shots with good old American 'rednecks'?

Really, if these guys weren't obviously Asian, you would think that "Chaw" was shot in rural Mississippi or something.

Looks like the Koreans even do pig hunts better than us! Move over "Hogzilla"...hear comes "Chaw"!

Here the synopsis:

Shock and fear wash over the quiet, peaceful town of Sameri when ecologist (Soo Ryeon) discovers the body parts of a girl in the mountains. Officer Kim Kang Su (Uhm Tae Woong), newly transferred from Seoul, gets assigned to the case, but it soon transpires this is no ordinary homicide. Cheon Il Man (Jang Hang Seon), the victim’s grandfather, is convinced that the culprit is a giant man-eating boar, and more will be claimed if the beast isn’t taken down. Kim’s own mother has gone missing, and may have already fallen victim. All interested in capturing the boar for reasons of their own, Kim, Cheon, Soo Ryeon, opportunistic hunter Baek (Yoon Je Moon), and detective Shin (Park Hyuk Kwon) head into the dangerous wilds, but will they make it back out alive?

Check out your local (or Internet) Asian film retailer for "Chaw".
