According to Dailian, The Eighth Night will be released on Netflix. Though Netflix hasn’t officially confirmed the news, the industry insiders are saying that they are specifically aiming for the Netflix release in July.
The Eighth Night has finished filming in August 2019. Initially, the movie was scheduled to be released last year, but it was postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19.
Earlier, Time to Hunt, The Call, and Space Sweepers gave up on the theater release and chose Netflix. In the end, all three projects saw successful results. Moreover, with the prolonged COVID-19 situation, more movies will be choosing OTT service over theaters.
Meanwhile, The Eighth Night is a mystery thriller that depicts the struggles against an unbound evil. It centers around the chaotic world through the infinite symbol, which looks like number 8 that symbolizes completeness, immortality, and reincarnation. Director Kim Tae Hyung will be making his directorial debut with the project.
