Directed by Jeong Won Shin
A young cop must stop a giant man-eating boar from terrorizing his rural village in this frightfully fun Korean horror-comedy-western. Our unlikely hero is a new transplant to the village where the locals seem like they're auditioning for a Korean reboot of TWIN PEAKS. But despite his annoyance with them, he's not about to let a pushy porcine prey on the proletariat. So it's time to head into the woods and bring home the bacon. Variety compared CHAWZ to RAZORBACK and JAWS, but fans of THE HOST will also find much to love in this crazy creature-feature. (In Korean with English Subtitles)

Cast: Choi Won-young, Eom Tae-woong
Good Jaws ripoff with a bit of Predator flirts and quite a bit South Korean comedy. I think both the comedic parts and the horror works well. And the CGI bore is really good.
How is this movie so fucking delightful?
This is a super-fun film, even though it’s sorta all over the place. The characters are distinct and wacky and enjoyable and there’s a telling contrast between Korean city life and country life, which was interesting to see depicted. Was it scary? The boar was well done, but the truly chilling moment is the hidden scene after the initial credits!!!
Love creature features and this is a good one filled with a lot of campy witty humor and good production . A little longer than it needed to be but a solid , fun movie .
