New promo material for upcoming Korea horror Deranged has hit the net - in the form of a viral trailer, made up of candid home video and CCTV footage - and it certainly packs a punch.
Further to our previous post we’ve also discovered the infection is actually caused by a parasite like worm, that burrows into the victim’s brain causing them to become extremely violent, with a complete and irrational craving for water. Urgh Narsty!
Deranged opens in Korea next month. Can’t wait to get our hands on this!
Synopsis: 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 search for medicine. Through Jae-pil he learns of a warehouse containing a potential cure in thousands and thousands of doses and heads there with no idea of what he’s heading into.
