Arang (2006/Tartan/DTS/Korea/Horror)


Picture: C+†††† Sound: B-†††† Extras: C+†††† Film: C+



An attempt to combine the police procedural and supernatural killer thriller meet with mixed but sometimes interesting results in Ahn Sang Hoonís thriller Arang (2006) where the victims died of acid released inside their bodies, but something more sinister is going on and the investigators have to work against the clock before it happens again.


Their biggest lead is a murder that took place at a salt house a decade ago and yes, a dead girl in white clothes with long hair keeps showing up!!!Geez, what is that?Anyhow, outside of what we have seen before in The X-Files and the like, I was surprised how good this still was.If you canít get enough of this kind of film, you might as well see this one.You could do much worse and we have.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.85 X 1 image is somewhat soft unfortunately, as the cinematography by Moon Yong-Sik has inspired moments.The audio is here in Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1, though the DTS is a little better, this sadly was not thought out as the multi-channel experience it could have been.Extras include both a behind the scenes and making of featurette, the original theatrical trailer, deleted scenes, decent audio commentary track by cast/director and on-camera cast interviews.
