Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A disaster film with just the right touch of reality to ground the outre genre flourishes."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Deranged is, for the most part, simply unable to become the tense or engrossing thriller promised by its admittedly spectacular setup."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Yes, there are messages about the callousness of big business and the recurring foolishness of man tampering with nature, but they're never didactic, and they never overwhelm the film's escapist thrills."
‑ , Village Voice
"Terrific, engrossing and intelligent epidemic thriller from Korea, which shows up American product like Contagion and Outbreak for their shallowness and commercialism."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"virus thriller Deranged (Yeon-ga-si) tries hard to break free of its Contagion shackles by giving its infection a truly bizarre origin & symptomatology... [but] ends up being both preposterously silly and numbingly repetitive."
‑ Anton Bitel, Sight and Sound
