Fantastic news! Sci-fi horror thriller Deranged, the film that knocked out ‘The Amazing Spider-man’ from the number one spot at the Korean box office during its opening weekend, is to get a U.S theatrical release and it’s coming sooner than you’d think. There’s already been plenty of back coverage for the movie on 24fps to whet your appetite, but you want to know even more, check out the newly live U.S site. Deranged opens July 27 and we’ll definitely be there!
Synopsis: A Hairworm (also commonly called horsehair worm) is a thin and lean parasitic worm that lives inside insects. The parasite produces proteins that act directly on the development of the central nervous system and are similar to proteins present in other insects. When the worm is ready to reproduce, it is able to influence its host's actions by secreting proteins that induce its host to jump into water, where it will drown. The parasite then leaves its host, continuing to live and reproduce in water. The parasite received nationwide attention in Korea when its unique and terrifying behaviours were shown in a 2009 documentary. Some of the viewers called the hairworm an ‘alien’. Because of its characteristic use of water to reproduce and infect, viewers were haunted by the possibility of human infection.
