Movie Info

Taking its name from a Korean folktale, this spooky thriller follows detectives So-young (Yun-ah Song) and Hyun-ki (Dong-Wook Lee) as they investigate a series of bizarre murders. Just released from suspension, So-young returns to find she's been handed a rookie partner and a puzzling case centered on a decade-old murder. Directed by Sang-hoon Ahn, this disturbing whodunit puts a unique spin on the serial killer genre.

Critic Reviews for Arang

  • If you created a drinking game in connection with the new Korean film, Arang - every time you see an A-horror cliche, you down a shot - you'd be hammered at the 10 minute mark.

    Really bad translation, couldn't get into it.

    What if a horror/thriller/fan/film student had the chance to make his own film? Imagine the shower scene from Psycho with that spooky weird girl from The Grudge in there with you, got that? ... Arang is that film, with familiar elements from all those genres woven into the story of the investigation of an series of bizarre deaths mysteriously tied to a still older unsolved case. Count the twists, turns and loving tips of the hat to Hitchcock ...

    An inept ghost story that tries far too hard to be <i>Ringu</i> or <i>Ju-on</i>.
