Takashi Miike’s New Hulu Series Trailer for ‘Connect’ is a Warped Serial Killer Tale

Takashi Miike has long been on the warped and intriguing side of Japanese cinema. From Ichi the Killer to Lesson of the Evil, Miike has made himself a name with genre fans. His latest entry, Connect changes formats from film to a multi-part Hulu series.

The tale connects a serial killer and Ha Dongsoo together thanks to an eyeball that was taken during an attempted organ harvesting. This leaves the victim with the ability to see what the serial killer is up to during his most private and sadistic moments. Of course, Dongsoo wants that eyeball back. Sure, you have seen similar tales but none are told the way Miike tells this one.

The synopsis for Connect goes like this:

Connect” stars Jung Haein (“Snowdrop,” “Something in the Rain”) as Ha Dongsoo – a new immortal mankind called ‘Connect’ kidnapped by a gang of organ harvesters who are determined to take his eyes. After suddenly waking on an operating table following the surgery, Dongsoo is able to escape without one eye, and later discovers that he can still see out of his missing eye, which is now being used by a serial killer who has been terrorizing the residents of Seoul. Determined to get back what was taken, Dongsoo will pursue the serial killer, taking whatever steps are necessary to make himself whole again.

Connect stars Jung Haein, Ko Kyungpuo and Kim Hyejun (“Inspector Koo”). Based on a webtoon created by Shin Dae-sung.

Miike’s warped masterpiece, Connect is now streaming on Hulu.
