A detective and a graphic novelist team up to catch a relentless murderer in director Kim Yong-Kyoon’s “Killer Toon.” Judging from the trailer, what sounds like a typical by-the-numbers South Korean thriller could be something a bit more impressive. The clip you see embedded below might look resemble a music video from the mid-90s, but it’s got enough style to make me take notice. Which, as you well know, isn’t really all that difficult.

Kim Yong-Kyoon is responsible for crafting the 2005 horror flick “The Red Shoes,” which was based on a story by Hans Christian Andersen. Although it wasn’t an altogether memorable experience, Kim’s effort was one of the first South Korean genre flicks I encountered. It holds a special place in my cinematic heart for that reason alone.

Here’s this synopsis I found:

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.

“Killer Toon” stars Ko Su-Hee, Kim Ji-Eun, Lee Eol, Sa Hyeon-Jin, Lee Yong-Nyeo, Jo Duk-Je, and Park Hyun-Young. The thriller hits theaters in South Korea on June 27, 2013.
