Korean Thriller FLU on Region 1 DVD March 18th
Writer/Director Kim Sung-soo (BEAT, SCREAM CITY) delivers the vicious viral outbreak thriller FLU (감기, Gamgi, 2013), debuting on DVD March 18th from CJ Entertainment. The all-star cast includes Jang Hyuk (THE CLIENT), Su Ae (SUNNY, A FAMILY), Yoo Hae-jin (MUSA-THE WARRIOR, KING AND THE CLOWN) and newcomer Park Min-ha.
The worst epidemic ever seen is sweeping through the Seoul suburb of Bundang. Within hours after a patient dies in the hospital covered in an oozing red rash and regurgitating blood, the deadly virus sweeps the city and the body count rapidly rises. Medical professionals are in a panic over the mysteriously murderous infection that has no known cure, fatalities rise and soon the government orders the military to quarantine the entire area — no one gets in, no one gets out.
Medics find hope when they hear of a sole survivor who may have developed antibodies against this ruthless viral mutation. As medical professionals rush to find the sole individual with the potential key for a cure, desperation and violence grip the public as the infected and non-infected struggle for life and everything begins to spiral out of control.
FLU has a runtime of approximately 122 minutes and is not rated.
