Jae-hwan is a homicide detective bent on taking down a dangerous serial killer named Jin-hyuk, who has murdered a ton of victims, including Jae-hwan’s brother-in-law. Filled with anger and hungry for revenge, Jae-hwan will do whatever is necessary to hunt him down. During a frenzied chase, he finally captures him, but then they get into an accident that will forever change their lives. Jae-hwan eventually wakes up in a hospital — however, something is terribly wrong. He finds out that he looks and sounds like Jin-hyuk, which means their minds are trapped in each other's bodies. Realizing that his family is in danger, he must find a way to get back to his own body and defeat his nemesis once and for all.
Director Kim Jae-hoon’s feature debut, the body-swap thriller DEVILS, is tailor-made for the Fantasia audience. It’s over-the-top and insane, loaded with jaw-dropping thrills that will keep you invested throughout. The two lead actors, Oh Dae-hwan (DELIVER US FROM EVIL) and Jang Dong-yoon (PROJECT WOLF HUNTING), do such a fantastic job of convincing you that their characters’ minds are truly stuck in each other's bodies, which certainly makes their situation a lot more deranged and intense. With non-stop suspense and brutal action from start to finish, it brilliantly showcases the one-of-a-kind and ambitious nature of South Korean genre filmmaking that fans love so much nowadays. Grab some popcorn and get ready to experience one of the most unhinged and riveting films that you'll see at the festival this summer! You have to see it to believe it. – Steven Lee
