Who Killed Cock Robin, a psychological crime thriller directed by award-winning Taiwanese filmmaker Cheng Wei-hao (The Tag-Along franchise) starring Taiwanese-American actor Mason Lee (Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, The Hangover II) will hit VOD later this month.
 
The film follows an ambitious journalist’s investigation into a hit-and-run he witnessed years ago. As he beats the clock to rescue the disappeared news source, layers of unimaginable dark truths about a corrupted system start peeling away.
“Known for The Tag-Along, a ghost folklore-inspired horror franchise that broke the genre’s box office record in Taiwan once held by Hollywood’s The Conjuring, director Cheng Wei-Hao is currently among the most sought-after Taiwanese talents. A passion project he had been working on for six years, Who Killed Cock Robin continues Taiwan New Cinema’s legacy of exploring human conditions and reinvigorates it with gripping suspense and dazzling gore.”
