RAM Releasing just dropped the trailer and poster for acclaimed Korean director Kim Ki-Duk’s MOEBIUS, his latest perverse statement on family tensions, sexual boundaries and society’s issues with each. The theatrical release sees MOEBIUS opening in Los Angeles on August 8 (at The Cinefamily), New York City on August 15 (at Cinema Village) and Chicago on August 22 (at Facets), and will be available to audiences nationwide via cable and digital VOD on August 29. We have the trailer for you guys to take a peek at below, as well as its poster.
Here’s what it’s about:
When she catches her husband having an affair, a woman attempts to castrate the cheater for his wrongdoing. Unsuccessful, she instead inflicts the unspeakable act on her own son, setting off a series of grotesque yet provocative events ranging from a hurried genital transplant to pain-inflicted orgasms that all merge in a continuous thread of delirious storytelling. With both husband and son damaged and living in grief, the wife returns as the family heads towards destruction even more horrific than before.
The trailer is pretty chaotic and delivers plenty of the red stuff; I think you guys are going to dig it!
