Friday, September 23, 2022 | News


The mayhem-packed movie is coming to festivals and general release soon.

Well Go USA will release PROJECT WOLF HUNTING to theaters October 7; before that, it will play four showings September 24 and 26 at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX, and screen on October 1 at Beyond Fest in LA. Written and directed by Kim Hong-sun, it stars Seo In-guk, Jang Dong-yoon, Jung So-min, Sung Dong-il, Park Ho-san, Jung Moon-sung, Jang Young-nam and Choi Guy-hwa. The synopsis: “When efforts to extradite notorious convicts from the Philippines to South Korea are stymied by a deadly airport bombing, the Korean authorities commandeer the cargo freighter Frontier Wolf for their next transfer. As a rogues’ gallery of lowlifes, including a callous heir to a criminal empire [Seo], board the titanic vessel, they are escorted by two dozen hardened detectives, and the vigilant oversight of a hot-headed Coast Guard captain [Sung]. Despite the heavy security, a plot to seize control of the ship percolates among the prisoners and soon boils over, but what neither cop nor crook appear to be privy to is that they are not the freighter’s only cargo.

“What starts as a high-seas hijacking suddenly ricochets into a kind of brutal slasher as a sinister shape [Choi] emerges from the bowels of the ship, indiscriminately hunting its passengers–all of whom, judging by the unending geysers of blood that erupt from their wounds, seem to have tremendously high blood pressure.”
