His brother Jae-pil is a detective that is not all that interested in public safety and spends most of his time moaning about the stock market. The discovery of a series of floating, gruesomely skeletal bodies around the country sparks hysteria. The police commissioner is disturbed to see CCTV footage of people jumping into water as if they were possessed, and drowning themselves. Time passes and hundreds of similar cases are reported, leaving officials stumped as to the cause of the deaths. The government declares a national emergency.

Good try from Korea!
13 December 2012 | by fluffsetSee all my reviews

As we can see Korea now try to wider their genre instead of just popular with their gangster-gore-cop movie as always. They had try courtroom, sport, war, social problem and many things so now they come up with ''Deranged'', their first pandemic movie maybe.

Maybe everyone will remember about ''Contagion'', yes they are the same genre but this is Korea, so they are totally different movie because all korean fans know what West don't have in their movie, only in Korea.

Distressful, thrilling, suspenseful, dramatic, thats what we need in the movie and Deranged have it all. Maybe it have a predictable solution but its so exciting and very worth watching. Especially for the ''race against time'' scene! Good try fella!
