Sugar -n- Thunder presents: NYC/USA PREMIERE of FEAR EATS THE SEOUL!

31 10 2011

We are RIDICULOUSLY excited to announce that SUGAR -N- THUNDER is bringing NJ (Nick) Calder’s “FEAR EATS THE SEOUL” to the USA! We’re hosting the very first USA screening of the film, which also happens to be the very first screening in NJ’s hometown of NEW YORK!


“Fear Eats The Seoul” is NY-born filmmaker and School of Visual Arts alum NJ Calder‘s feature film debut, the first expat-made genre film in Korea. 24-year-old Calder is proudly representing a young new generation of filmmakers who have embraced the digital revolution of cinema. He not only wrote and directed the film, but also shot, cut and co-produced it as well.

Here’s the premise: When South Korea is ravaged by a massive demon epidemic that nearly wipes out its entire population, four foreigners are forced to stick together to survive the fallout. After they encounter a Korean survivor who informs them that a nuclear purge of the country is imminent, they realize that escape is the only option. But nothing comes free, and to make it out alive they must overcome their differences and work together to confront not only the flesh-hungry demons waiting for them around every corner, but also the personal demons hiding within themselves.

This is a huge deal for us, for NJ, and for anyone who knows the true grit and grind of giving it all to follow your dreams. Please join us to celebrate this film and make the long-awaited US premiere a great success!
