Korean director Kim Jee-woon (A TALE OF TWO SISTERS) is going to have to recut his horror pic I SAW THE DEVIL.

Sex and violence. Why do we culturally gravitate toward entertainments that exploit these two facets of the human id? If I could properly explain that, then the mysteries of the human condition would be no more, and FANGORIA might be out of business. It’s just how we’re wired, that primal voyeuristic need to channel aggression and lust through entertainment…and writer/director Darren Ward knows this.
