About the Movie

Ex-detective pimp Jung-ho has a big problem on his hands. His girls keep disappearing without clearing their debts. One night, he gets a call from a customer and sends Mi-jin, one of his girls still remaining, while ignoring her refusal due to her bad cold. But when Mi-jin meets the customer against her will, Jung-ho realizes the phone number of the customer matches that of the calls the missing girls got last. As something smells fishy, he searches for her. This taut thriller is brought to you by IFC Films. "One of the most intelligent, brutal, and just plain straightforward type of serial killer films to come along since the discovery and over-usage of the twist ending.... THE CHASER is the best film of its kind to come along since THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. Fans of serial killer films owe it to themselves to seek out this Korean flick" -Aint It Cool. From IFC Films.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A grisly serial-killer thriller that develops into a howl of outrage at the ineptitude of the system. – Justin Chang, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: The pessimism of Na's slick debut rings false. – Nick Schager, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: I've more or less had it with this stuff, but the film is distinguished by the grubby velocity of his foot chases, and the effectiveness of its craft (not to mention the unglamorous resolution of at least one character's fate). – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The Chaser is an expert serial-killer film from South Korea and a poster child for what a well-made thriller looked like in the classic days. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

great horror film..worth watching!!

Hands down one of the best international horror movies i've seen!! Its based on a true story which makes it more scary. Korean film with english sub


This is one of my favorite movies of any genre! I bought it so that I could watch it over and over, and was delighted to find that it was still in the original Korean with English subtitles.

Buy. Watch. Learn. Love!
