All Critics (1)

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.

Audience Reviews for Arang

I had never heard about the legend of Arang before watching this film so didn't know the plot ahead of time. The film was an interesting mix of legend and detective story all blended together with Asian horror flair.

A rather ho-hum and derivative Korean horror thriller that unsuccessfully attempts to blend police procedural together with Asian ghost-story stereotypes. The result is tedious at best....

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 ...
