Storyline

Jae-hyuk is an ordinary man in his 40s. He works as a medical supplies salesman and is hassled by doctors all day. 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. Jae-pil joins the massive investigation and meets the mayor of a small town who claims he witnessed several men in work uniforms dumping infected dogs into the streams and realizes that there is a conspiracy behind the outbreak. Meanwhile, Jae-hyuk's wife and children are showing the same symptoms as the victims, leading to a frantic ... Written by TDM

Trivia

Parasitic horsehair worms, or Nematomorpha, such as those which infect the victims in the movie do exist, although they only infect arthropods. Two species, Spinochordodes tellinii and Paragordius tricuspidatus, which infect Orthopteran insects, make their hosts drown themselves as depicted in the movie. See more »

Endured, Not Enjoyed
13 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

This picture was frustrating to watch. The chasing-around/in-pursuit-of element stretched itself thin as any episode of Looney Tunes. No gore, no frights, nothing eerie or atmospheric. Just the live action equivalent of a cartoon rife with ridiculous anxiety. I gave this a 4 instead of a 1 because of the high production value and solid acting all around.

The core story, while outlandish, is interesting, but the execution of this film just left me exhausted. It lacked grace.

Avoid until you've run out of contagion films to watch.

South Korea has been cranking out some real gems lately. This, however, isn't one of them.
