In limited theaters July 27 from CJ Entertainment is Deranged, a South Korean genre film that’s a massive success overseas. About a mutant waterborne parasite that takes over Korea, the film passed its 3 million ticket sales mark only 11 days into its release—topping The Amazing Spiderman once more—and continues to maintain the No. 1 spot at the South Korean box office.
The below clip was shared and isn’t impressive, at all. I’m dying to see the movie so I can see why it’s so popular in Korea. We’ve also added the English-subbed trailer inside with theatrical dates.
Directed by Park Jung-woo, “There must be something in the water. Just before dawn, skeletal bodies surface on the Han River in Seoul, Korea. More bodies are discovered all over the nation. The cause of death is determined to be a mutated parasite worm that brainwashes its hosts, ultimately making them jump into bodies of water and to their death within days of infection. As the number of victims rapidly increase, the government sets up an Emergency Response Task Force and puts all infected citizens into quarantine. Meanwhile, pharmaceutical company salesman Jae-hyeok realizes that his family is infected, and becomes desperate to find the cure. In his frantic search to save his family, he uncovers a frightening conspiracy behind the epidemic.”
