In the spirit of the new-age slasher, this Korean flick is telling about a bunch of young internet chatter decide to make an off-line meeting in a beautiful beach. Little does they know a banned ex-member of the group, called Sandmanz, start to kill them one by one. The result is `Bloody Beach', a gore-fest.
Bloody Beach a.k.a. Haebyeoneuro Gada is the Korean attempt to make a decent slasher movie. The result is seemed quite well. Although Bloody Beach comes in the post-Scream era but the director seem very influence by the 80's slasher flick. There's many reference from that era and that makes Bloody Beach as a fine combination of 90's and 80' flick. Actually, there's nothing new here and there's routine and cliché, and the plot holes is quite abundance, but since this is a splatter gem, we can't complaint. As a Korean movie, Bloody Beach also has a bit different approaching in the story line rather than the American counterpart. The dramatic tense is build well. However I must warn you, because the pace is slow-moving, especially in the first half. But after the second killing, the pace move tolerable and able to build the fright rhythms it needs. The gores are somewhat strong and still in the cheesy concept but it nicely blend and make me do not much complaint of it. If you like a slasher with different ambience, you should check this. An Asian splatter is definitely rare to find, especially the nice one.
