Plot: A karaoke bar owner hires an odd helper to attract more clients. Despite her slovenly appearance, business improves and another helper is hired, but all the while, a serial killer is lurking around.

What to expect: Making a wacky genre film in the halls of Korea’s favorite pastime is a good start, but looking at the intricate sets (see above) that were used for this and suddenly Karaoke Crazies begins to sound very interesting. It’s a little old, but expect to see this make some waves this year. 

When can we see it? I’m guessing this will hit the festival circuit this year. Hard to say when or where.
