I remember covering director Kim Tae-kyeong’s viral video horror flick “Don’t Click” last summer. As I recall, the film was abruptly moved from August to December without so much as a sorry-about-that. And then, like some sort of hackneyed supernatural ghost story involving haunted release dates, it vanished. Now, apparently, it’s back again, ready and willing to chill you to the center of your soul. Assuming, of course, it doesn’t like disappear again, like some sort of cheesy sequel to a story involving haunted release dates.
Here’s a synopsis, in case you’ve forgotten what it’s about:
Jung-mi, who”s been living alone with her elder sister after their parents left for the US, uploads UCC often in hopes of being famous. She believes that it”s the easy way to make her dream come true: being an anchorwoman. Jung-mi”s sister, Se-hi thinks this is useless and same time dangerous but cannot stop her sister. When Jung-mi finds that the video so called “forbidden video” is in the center of the attention, she asks Se-hi”s boyfriend, Joon-hyuk working at special investigation team for cyber crimes to get her the file. Even though it”s already forbidden, Joon-hyuk illegally downloads the video file from the closed internet site for Jung-mi. She clicks the file only to find out it contains one high school girl”s wicked necromantic ritual. After watching the video, there happen series of strange incidents to Jung-mi. Now, Se-hi has to find the way to save her only sister from the curse of the video.
According to the poster embedded below, “Don’t Click” will finally arrive in South Korean theaters on May 31st, 2012. Pencil it onto your schedules. Don’t use ink. That’s a joke for the three of you who don’t have smart phones yet. Anyway, in order to refresh your memory, the trailer has been included at no extra charge.
