South Korean Found-Footage Horror Flick 'Gonjam: Haunted Asylum' Getting an English-Language Remake!
Just look at that face to the left and try not to be immediately creeped out...
...Via THR, Black Box Management and Seoul-based BH Entertainment will be partnering for a remake of the 2018 South Korean horror film Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum!
In the original film, directed by Jung Bum-shik:
"An online reality show recruits a handful of people to explore the abandoned Gonjiam Psychiatric Hospital."
Said Charles Pak, head of international development at BH Entertainment, "As 'Parasite' has proven, the appetite for Korean content has never been higher. The partnership will further the exchange and development of Korean and U.S. adaptations, remakes and originals for both Korean and U.S. markets."
The film generated $20 million in worldwide box office on a $2.2 million budget, so it's no wonder it's getting a remake.
Gonjam: Haunted Asylum is currently streaming on Amazon Prime for those that still haven't seen the creepy found footage flick.
Check out the trailer below.
