Movie Info

Just before dawn, gruesomely skeletal bodies surface on the Han River. The cause of death is determined to be a mutant parasite-a hairworm--that brainwashes its hosts, ultimately making them jump into bodies of water and to their death. Jae-hyuk, a salesman for a pharmaceutical firm, faces an enormous terror: his entire family has become host to the fatal parasite. But while he searches for the cure to save his family, the parasite becomes a nationwide epidemic. The government takes action and

A disaster film with just the right touch of reality to ground the outre genre flourishes.

Yes, there are messages about the callousness of big business and the recurring foolishness of man tampering with nature, but they're never didactic, and they never overwhelm the film's escapist thrills.

virus thriller Deranged (Yeon-ga-si) tries hard to break free of its Contagion shackles by giving its infection a truly bizarre origin & symptomatology... [but] ends up being both preposterously silly and numbingly repetitive.

Deranged is, for the most part, simply unable to become the tense or engrossing thriller promised by its admittedly spectacular setup.

Terrific, engrossing and intelligent epidemic thriller from Korea, which shows up American product like Contagion and Outbreak for their shallowness and commercialism.

Audience Reviews for Deranged

Jeong-woo Park goes with a national emergency in Deranged.Like any thriller should, the film's story has some pretty solid buildup; however, even with only a run time of 1 hour 45 minutes, things get tiresome. Part of it is the events that unfold, while possibly more realistic in nature, are more frustrating than exciting.The gore factor is minor and tolerable. It really isn't that bad once the pandemic is revealed for what it is, which the plot does quite early in the film. In turn, by doing this the rest of the story details become predictable.Kim Myung-Min's character is a bit unlikable, but he is acceptable as the lead. Moon Jung-hee, Kim Dong-wan, and Lee Ha-nui are good cast fillers; the latter two could have been used more.As far as national pandemic stories go, Deranged covers its bases. Even if it's once, it's worth a checkout.
