Extra Info

Don’t feel like watching all those big film classics now that your mission is to exhaust the entire Netflix catalogue? Then NEW NORMAL has the solution, by squeezing in its 2-hour running course no less than 6 interconnected shorts that are each inspired by a different cult film! ‘M’: A single woman is being creeped out by a slimy handyman late at night, while the news keeps reporting about a serial killer that targets single women. ‘Do The Right Thing’: A boy sees an old lady struggling in a wheelchair and makes the fatal decision to help her. ‘Dressed to Kill’: There’s a new dating app on the market that connects you with your ideal partner… or two, three. Perfect for serial daters and killers! ‘Be With You’: A man finds a letter in a vending machine that leads to another letter. A trail that will lead him to the love, or rather the mistake of his life. ‘Peeping Tom’: a voyeuristic man is obsessed with his sexy neighbor and sneaks into her flat only to discover that she’s got some skeletons in her closet. ‘My Life as a Dog’: At a night shift at a convenience store a young woman has to deal with rude, drunk and downright crazy clients. Luckily, she can take her mind off things by gaming and giving advice on a forum how to get rid of dead bodies.
Director Bum-shik Jung (EPITAPH, BIFFF 2008) knows how to string stories together, he already proved that in the HORROR STORIES anthologies. Creepy stories with a great cast of K-culture favorites, among whom Ji-woo Choi (NOWHERE TO HIDE), Yoo-mi LEE (SQUID GAME), rapper P.O. and pop star Minho.
