Next month's Puchon International Festival of Fantastic Film (부천국제판타스틱영화제, PiFan, 15-25 July) will open with The Experiment, the Paul Scheuring-directed US remake of German thriller Das Experiment. It stars Adrien Brody and Forest Whitaker.
The festival will close with another film involving torture, Death Bell 2: Bloody Camp (고死 두 번째 이야기 : 교생실습), the South Korean horror-thriller directed by Yoo Sun-dong (유선동).
While the full 193-title programme has yet to be unveiled, festival organisers drew the curtain back on other elements. These include screenings of The Mobile Suit Gundam (機動戦士ガンダム) series, Detective Conan: The Lost Ship in The Sky (名探偵コナン 天空の難破船), directed by Yamamoto Yasuichiro (山本泰一郎), and the feature film version of Gintama (銀魂) directed by Takamatsu Shinji (高松信司).
It will also show 2009 Gaspard Noe-directed drug fantasy Enter The Void; Surely Someday (シュアリー・サムデイ, pictured), the directorial debut of actor Oguri Shun (小栗旬); and Trick The Movie: Psychic Battle Royale, directed by Tsutsumi Yukihiko (堤幸彦).
