Killer Toon (2013) Movie Image

If you model your killing spree after the murders you found in a comic book, then there’s a very strong chance the writer will team up with a detective to track you down. That’s the premise of “The Red Shoes” director Kim Yong-Kyoon’s upcoming thriller “Killer Toon.” In a nutshell, anyway. There’s not a lot of information about the flick currently making the rounds, but we do have a nifty little poster to gawk at. You can find the image nestled below.

There’s also this synopsis:

Popular horror webcomic artist Ji-yoon finds life imitating her own work when her publisher turns up dead in a way, precisely mirrors the images in her latest comic. Ji-yoon has an airtight alibi, and almost everyone suspects the death was a suicide or a copycat murder. Everyone except the curious detective Ki-chul lets the case languish as a mystery, but when a series of murders that resembles Ji-yoon’s drawings occur, he finds himself unraveling the terrifying truth of the comics themselves.

South Korean drama veteran Uhm Ki-Joon will star as the detective, while actress and professional level amateur boxer Lee Si-Young will play the webcomic writer. “Killer Toon” is expected to arrive in South Korea this June. Check out the poster below.
