This one might be worth a look if only for the reason that it’s being toted as a graphic Korean sex and revenge murder mystery fantasy.
“Herapurple: Devil Goddess” kinda sounds like a “Ms. 45″ from beyond the grave mixed with “Se7en” type thing.
There is the legend of the Goddess Hera, a scorned woman, who came back from the dead to take revenge on the men who violated her.
A series of bizarre murders are occurring throughout the city, each victim a young man, each found disemboweled.
Haerim, a middle aged woman, is having recurring nightmares. She seeks the help of a doctor, who puts her under hypnotherapy. Through hypnosis the doctor discovers that Haerim was raped as a young girl and is now seeking revenge by murdering those responsible through her dreams.
Meanwhile, a team of detectives investigates the murders, trying to decipher a secret code of words and numbers that have been etched into the victims’ bodies.
It is a race against time to find who or what the murderer is. Could Haerim be possessed by the vengeful, ruthless spirit of the Goddess Hera herself?
Could be fun…could be a complete mess. “Herapurple” will begin its exclusive Los Angeles engagement at the Fairfax Cinemas on Friday, September 27th. After that, “Herapurple” will be headed to DVD on October 15th.
