YesAsia Editorial Description

An outbreak of mysterious deaths, a massive conspiracy, and one man determined to save his family. Award-winning actor Kim Myung Min (Detective K) takes on a pandemic in the disaster thriller Deranged, which depicts the outbreak of an unknown infection that slowly claims the body and mind of its victims, and throws the country into chaos. Directed by Park Jeong Woo (Big Bang), Deranged effectively combines medical disaster horrors with involving human drama and social commentary. Singer Kim Dong Wan of Shinhwa, Moon Jung Hee (Cafe Noir), and Honey Lee (Pasta) co-star in the blockbuster feature.

All across the country, people are mysteriously drowning to death, the victims throwing themselves into water as if possessed and gruesomely wasting away. The epidemic sparks fear and hysteria, and the government declares a state of national emergency as the death toll rises and more and more people are diagnosed with the disease. Harried medical supplies salesman Jae Hyuk (Kim Myung Min) is just a normal, working man desperate to save his family as they begin to show symptoms similar to the victims. From his detective brother (Kim Dong Wan), he learns that a potential antidote does exist, but the medication is being withheld from the public...

Professional Review of "Deranged (2012) (DVD) (Malaysia Version)"

November 19, 2012

This professional review refers to Deranged (DVD) (Korea Version)
Although early trailers seemed to suggest an Asian stab at the increasingly overpopulated zombie genre, Deranged thankfully turned out to be something very different and considerably more intriguing. Directed by Park Jeong Woo (Big Bang), the film is actually a disease outbreak thriller, quite rare in Korean cinema, mixed with conspiracy elements and horror, and proved very popular at the domestic box office, topping the charts for two weeks running. Taking the lead role is one of the country's most talented and acclaimed actors, Kim Myung Min (Closer to Heaven, Detective K), with support from Kim Dong Wan of the pop group Shinhwa, Moon Jung Hee (Cafe Noir), and Honey Lee (Pasta).

Kim Myung Min plays Jae Hyuk, a scientist who has been reduced to working as a pharmaceutical company salesman to support his family after being ruined due to bad stock market advice from his cop brother Jae Pil (Kim Dong Wan). His life and the country are thrown into chaos when drowned bodies start turning up in rivers throughout Korea without explanation, which turns out to be the start of a deadly pandemic whose victims exhibit an insane, violent thirst before dying. With more and more people falling prey to what seems to be an unknown disease, the government steps in and declares a national emergency, forcing the infected into camps to protect the populace while a cure is desperately sought. Jae Hyuk's worst fears are realised when his wife (Moon Jung Hee) and two young children start showing symptoms, his only hope lying with Jae Pil, who has been investigating the origins of the outbreak, uncovering a terrifying conspiracy in the process.

There really aren't enough plague thrillers these days, and Deranged is certainly one of the best either from Asia or indeed anywhere for some time. Park Jeong Woo does a superb job of combining enjoyable genre staples such as scenes of mass panic, forced internment camps and ominous news updates with effective social commentary and a tough cynical edge. The film is also surprisingly strong in terms of its human drama, which in Korean cinema often simply equals melodrama and a long third act filled with tears, Park presenting an interesting and likeable set of characters, boosted by some excellent performances, in particular from the always reliable Kim Myung Min and Moon Jung Hee, convincing and moving as a mother trying to keep her children alive in an increasingly hopeless situation. Though emotional and human, the film balances this well with a shocking conspiracy that though sinister is well within the bounds of belief. All of this grounds the film wonderfully, and this realism is the source of its powerful gut-punch, never letting the viewer doubt for a second that this is something which could actually happen in real life.

As well as serious and substantial, the film is also very entertaining, Park keeping things moving along at a fast pace, expertly shifting between intimate family concerns and nationwide panic. The film crams a huge amount into a relatively short running time of less than two hours and is tense throughout, hurtling along breathlessly, its narrative streamlined and building through good use of revelations and a heightening sense of control being lost. There's a good amount of action along the way, with several impressive large scale riots and civil disturbances, Park showing a fine handling of set pieces, along with the expected chase scenes and occasional flash of violence. Though never too nasty, and perhaps not quite as gruesome as its really quite horrifying subject matter (best left unspoiled in this review, though the nature of the outbreak once revealed is genuinely unpleasant), there are a fairly few squirm inducing moments scattered throughout, enough so to give the film a visceral kick and hammer home its monstrous yet realistic scenario.

Deranged is definitely one of the year's best thrillers, and a fine combination of disease, disaster and conspiracy, an entertaining and exciting film that grips from start to finish. Kim Myung Min is great as ever, and with Park Jeong Woo showing a steady hand and keen sense for what makes the genre tick, it's one which should go down very well with viewers of all persuasions.

A bad case of mutant worms – Part A Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
In the first 20 minutes “Deranged” as quite a slow and sombre paced plot. Jea-hyuk (Myung-min Kim) demoted from his lucrative scientist status to a pharmaceutical salesman, due to bad advice from his cop brother Jae-pil (Shinhwa’s Dong-wan Kim) about stock market advice, puts Jea-hyuk in need of personal financial loans to survive; drinking and struggling as a salesman to keep his wife and two kids afloat. Jae-pil’s wife (Jung-hee Moon) also seems to be overeating lots of food with their two children on nightly feasts - as if the food bills weren’t already high. All seems 'dysfunctional' in that soap opera way of affairs. But when a gruesome and mysterious corpse is discovered in a local river and cop Jae-pil investigates, the police discover the dead woman is so dehydrated and rotten, it was if her two days old body had been dead for around six months. At first the police suspect murder or suicide (then at a loss…aliens), but such surmising soon change as more and more bodies continue to appear in the long stretch of intersecting rivers.

One thing for sure the slow beginning suddenly speeds up to frantic levels (although even more sombre) as a large local Korean area is submerged into a viral epidemic of unusual ‘Resident Evil’ proportions, with scientists discovering the many deaths are due to mutant parasitic horsehair worms, which are living inside victim’s guts via water spores. As the worms grow they then leave the human host, the ‘infected’ throwing themselves into rivers due to dire thirst, followed by a gruesome death. As the epidemic worsens local people become screened and if ‘infected’ isolated in containment buildings, while political figures, scientists and pharma company shareholders argue about a drug patent issue, that needs to be settled to allow mass production of an antidote which is discovered to miraculously cure the deadly pandemic. At the same time all communications (Internet, SNS etc) in infected areas are cut off from the outside world. Protagonist Jea-hyuk whose wife and kids are quarantined due to having the parasite worms wriggling in their innards, leaves Jea-hyuk needing to race against time to save his family, and find a mysteriously ‘disappearing’ antidote that can cure the ‘infected’ (100, 000 boxes go awol as the virus hits town). Meanwhile cop Jae-pil upturns a corruptive conspiracy relating to pharma shareholders with frightening answers to why the worm pandemic started in the first place.

A bad case of mutant worms – Part B Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Ironically playing RE6 vid-game at a time watching this (although zombies are more related to Korean films like “My Neighbour Zombie” and one of the “Doomsday Book” trio) but “Deranged” is a decent all out viral panic movie to make for a different type of mass freak out. Okay, there’s no Leon with a shooter in it and the only RE type forces here are mass panic, helicopters in the sky, panoramic city shots, sinister suits and a dodgy ‘virus’. But it’s a similar Korean disaster type to “Haeundae” and “The Host”, but somewhat satirical. A mutant human gut worm parasite is a disturbing prospect, but subtle aspects make “Deranged” hard to take too seriously. The pace and plot is frantic and logical, its fast going and holds attention, but its also hit by odd clichés, plot sillies (water sprinkler) and over done mood shifts amongst the disturbance, and feels a less impacting horror type somehow. It also ends with a gung-ho spirit to make a swashbuckling hero blush. But it’s the worms, too! (Bringing images for me of the video game Worms to mind). Mutant horsehair worms causing people to overeat and turn into ravaging thirst hysterics? Experimenting on dogs with…worms? Possibly? But similarly to being infected by mutant head lice where people’s heads suddenly start turning into lice…or falling off?

Nevertheless, “Deranged” and its ‘more than a bit of tummy trouble’ is grim, very grim. Parasites exist, its part of nature, although here mutant nature running wild inducing mass hysteria (imposing ambience of unsettling information) by deranging microorganisms. “Deranged” is ‘unnatural’ science tampering with mutations and inadvertently disposing of the experiment when ‘suits’ deem it to be too risky to be profitable. (An experiment with grasshopper and worm eggs to find crucial properties hinted as a possible cure for various human brain diseases). But an even bigger horror arises to why the worm outbreak happens and where Big Money prioritises over natural life. The final is also a bit rolling eyes skyward at the ‘cavalry’ saving the day at the 11th hour. At the finish it seems the local people are more polluted with medication than anything. The ominous theme can even bring thoughts of Japanese movie “Vexille” to mind, but maybe that’s another conspiracy story. To be fair “Deranged” as a unique approach and is a good movie. Acting is good, too. It’s not as grisly as it seems either. Just don’t eat tubular shaped foodstuffs whilst viewing – them worms.
