It was announced last week that Dark Star Pictures acquired the North American distribution rights to the crime thriller Missing as part of its ongoing collaboration with Bloody Disgusting.

After screening at several prestigious festivals including Busan International Film Festival, Fantasia, and the forthcoming Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, Missing will open in theaters on November 4, 2022, before making its way to VOD platforms on November 18th and Blu-ray on December 6th.

In the film…

“Depressed and in debt following the death of his wife, Santoshi (Jiro Sato) tells his young daughter he has found a way out. Pointing to a reward note, he vows to find the infamous serial killer ‘No Name’ (Hiroya Shimizu) and cash in, claiming to have seen the man in the flesh a few days earlier. Kaeda (Aoi Ito) cannot take her aloof father seriously. But when he goes missing without a trace, she starts to fear the worst—and must begin looking for him.”

Missing is written and directed by Shinzô Katayama. The filmmaker crossed paths with Bong Joon-Ho while shooting TOKYO! (2008) and served as his assistant director on Mother (2009). In 2019, his debut feature, Siblings of the Cape was selected by numerous domestic and international film festivals.

“Director Shinzô Katayama has beautifully crafted a story that will keep audiences on their toes,” said Dark Star Pictures President, Michael Repsch.

Missing is a nonstop engaging thriller that erupts into a helluva shocking finale,” adds Bloody Disgusting’s Brad Miska. “We can’t wait to play this game of cat-and-mouse with horror fans.”
