    Film Movement is offering SciFi Japan readers a chance to win a DVD of Park Kang's Terrifying SEIRE (세이레, 2021). Heralding the arrival of a fresh new voice in Korean genre cinema, SEIRE was an Official Selection in the Fantasia New Flesh Competition, was nominated for Best Film and captured the New Currents FIPRESCI Prize at the Busan International Film Festival, and also received a nomination for a Golden Eye Best International Feature at the 2022 Zurich Film Festival.

    In Korean folk traditions, "seire" is the twenty-one days after a baby is born in which they're uniquely vulnerable to bad luck, curses - even evil spirits. Many superstitions surround these first three weeks in a baby's life, and new mother Hae-mi carefully follows every one of them. Father Woo-jin is reluctantly willing to play along, but when he attends an ex-girlfriend's funeral, he unwittingly opens the door to to dark supernatural dangers. Plagued by terrible nightmares, the skeptical Woo-jin gradually begins to understand the seire custom, as he is forced to unravel the mystery of what is haunting him and his family.

    SEIRE debuts on DVD (SLP: $29.95) and Digital August 11, 2023 from Film Movement. The film has a runtime of approximately 102 minutes.
