“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).

Based on the real life serial killer Yoo Young-cheol, who was convicted in 2005 of murdering 20 people, this acclaimed thriller tells a story of an ex-detective pimp Jung-ho (Kim Yun-sik) who is struggling to save his girl from a psycho-serial killer customer Young-min (Ha Jung-woo). This strikingly well-made debut film from Na Hong-jin has won many prestigious awards and quickly became the highest-grossing Korean film of 2008. Warning: Contains harsh language, graphic violence, and adult situations.
