"Death Bell" ("Gosa") is unafraid of big-budget competitors

2008/08/22 | 930 views | Permalink | Source

Local horror title "Death Bell" ("Gosa") looks set to axe fellow horror films from their top rankings to become the second most popular Korean horror film.

In a star studded summer of big-budget entertainment, the modest budgeted 'rookie' project "Death Bell" ("Gosa") accumulated over 1.2 million victims in cinemas during 18 days, according to its producer Go-eo Contents Media.

"Death Bell" ("Gosa") is the feature film debut of former music video Director Chang and the acting debut of singer Nam Gyu-ri. Young actor Kim Beom was previously seen in the film "Hellcats" and the popular TV sitcom "High Kick!". Their teachers are played by popular actor Lee Beom-soo and actress Yoon Jung-hee-I.

Kim Jee-woon's "A Tale of Two Sisters", the most successful horror film with 3.2 million viewers, is still not in sight for "Death Bell" ("Gosa"), but "Death Bell" ("Gosa") seems likely to overtake number Kong Soo-chang's "R-Point" (1.6 million) and Yoon Jae-yeon's "Wishing Stairs" (1.8 million).
