Korean monster film Sector 7 teaser
There's a teaser trailer online for a new monster film from Korea called Sector 7. Basically it looks as though offshore oil workers drill up a monster that decides to try and overrun the oil rig, and no wonder it's pretty mad, wouldn't you be?
The full plot has a lot more to it, and the teaser is kind of interesting even if we are seeing how it might all end and that there is more than a passing resemblance to a certain classic space film.
There's also the suggestion that this film might enjoy some additional success after The Host (Filmstalker review) did so well, and why not?
It looks not too bad, and I like the idea that the setting is an offshore drilling rig, but is it too close to Alien? Perhaps, perhaps not.
In "Sector 7", an underwater oil field located south of Jeju Island, Hae-jun is working as a marine equipment manager on an oil prospecting ship called Eclipse. Joining the crew later is Jeong-man, a former colleague of Hae-jun's father, assigned to Eclipse as captain. Though his job is to oversee the withdrawal of the ship, he suggests conducting some drilling one last time. After 3 weeks of preparation, Hae-jun takes new recruit underwater, but he sinks to the bottom of the sea when his equipment fails. Shortly after crew members begin to turn up dead, one by one, their bodies viciously mutilated. What the few survivors soon discover is a transparent underwater creature they encountered once before. The viral monster infiltrated the ship through the drilling pipe and has been feeding on the crew to survive. For Hae-jun and his colleagues, a fight for their lives begins.
That's the plot for Sector 7, now here's the trailer:
