The Red Shoes in June
Tartan Video have announced the UK DVD release of The Red Shoes on 25th June 2007 priced at £19.99. This horror from Korean director Yong-Gyun Kim combines Hans Christian Anderson’s familiar fairy tale with horror elements such as vengeful spirits.
A pair of high-heeled shoes are abandoned on a subway platform. When a young woman discovers them she feels compelled to take them, not knowing that they are cursed. She has just split up with her husband and plans to raise her daughter on her own. However, the shoes take possession of her. Equally, they enchant her ballet-obsessed daughter, family and friends with murderous consequences. When she investigates further, she discovers that a malevolent spirit is seeking revenge beyond the grave. Mother and daughter become obsessive rivals for ownership of the cursed shoes, but who will find themselves taking the final walk to their grave?
Presented in anamorphic widescreen with Korean 2.0, 5.1 and DTS Surround audio and optional English subtitles, extras include commentary by the director and cinematographer, a making of featurette including interviews with the cast and crew, a visual effects featurette and original trailer.
