Well Go USA Entertainment will release the Korean action-adventure Night of the Assassin on the Hi-Yah! streaming service July 21 and on digital, Blu-ray Disc and DVD Aug. 8.
Set in Korea’s Joseon era, the film follows a deadly assassin who comes out of retirement to exact revenge on a group waging a brutal campaign of terror against local villagers. In the film, after a deadly, long-dormant health condition surfaces during a mission, Joseon’s most lethal assassin goes into hiding to seek a cure without revealing his identity. But upon witnessing a ruthless campaign of terror against local villagers, the region’s deadliest killer comes out of retirement in order to exact his own brutal brand of vigilante justice.
