Check out the first U.S. trailer for the 16th century-set Korean monster movie which is called Monstum and it looks interesting! The film originally opened in South Korea in late 2018, but it’s coming to the U.S. today on Shudder.
Here’s the synopsis for the film:
It’s the 16th Century. The plague has taken over and fear runs rampant in the streets. When rumors of a vicious beast roaming Mount Inwangsan—called “Monstrum” by terrified masses—begin to spread, fear turns into panic. In order to quell the rising panic, King Jungjong brings his most trusted general, Yoon-gyeom, back from retirement. Joined by his daughter Myeong, his right-hand man Seong-han, and royal court officer Heo, Yoon-gyeom sets out to find the mysterious creature. Is the creature, Monstrum, real? Or a figment of mass imagination?
Shudder will release Monstrum on May 14th.
