Storyline

This is the classic tale of misfit high school students taking a prank too far, resulting in the death of a classmate (or at least it seems). After burying him alive and torching him, he lashes out from the grave, only to mysteriously disappear just as quick. They had also filmed their attempt at psuedo-snuff, with the tape originally to have perished with the enflamed corpse. Now, a masked murderer is tracking the group of five's every move, picking them off one-by-one, while showing portions of the film in random public places. Just when they think that they have their nemesis cornered, it actually has them trapped, until that final showdown that you know is eventually coming even before the opening credits Written by Anonymous

South Korea's answer to "I Know What You Did Last Summer"
25 February 2002 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

This starts off really kinky. I guess the director has a fetish for female feet and legs because we see those a couple of times during the first minutes. Well, nothing against a nice pair of legs, ey? We also see sexy Eun-mi, one of the only reasons to watch this movie. This girl is a sweetheart. That might explain why school weirdo Sung-wook is very excited when she invites him to spend a weekend with her and her friend Hui-jung in a cottage. Lucky geek. So far, so nice. Who wouldn't want to see that geek score with Eun-mi? (have I mentioned that she's really sexy?)...

But you won't. There's no scoring because now the film shifts tone. We see three young men entering the house, beating the girls and slicing a huge knife into the poor boy. Wow, that was a shocker. So what's this gonna be now? A slasher movie? Not really because it turns out that this was only a hoax. The boys didn't kill anyone, it was only a set up to film a little horror movie. Got that so far? Well, it gets more complicated because they accidentally DID kill Sung-wook. The kids decide to get rid of the body and burn it. That second, it turns out that Sung-wook was NOT dead. He burns, runs, falls. And is dead. Or is he?

One year later, the kids get a message that basically says "I Know What You Did Last Summer" ... or something like that. From now on, the movie just copies from US-counterparts like "I Know" and "Scream". The only exception is that Eun-mi is really sexy (I just had to mention that) ... well, actually, "The Record" gets worse than the US-Teenie-Slashers because those kids are REALLY dumb. They always separate for no apparent reason and they always search for the killer unarmed! Then, when the killer appears, they have to run away because hey, they're unarmed! That gets really boring and once Eun-mi (who's really sexy by the way) gets it, there's not much reason to watch on. Did I mention that the ending is completely contrived? Well it is.

So would I recommend "The Record"? Partially. As you might have guessed, I'd recommend checking out Eun-mi since she's really sweet. Plus, the first couple of minutes are weird in a interesting way because they don't prepare you for what is coming up. Furthermore, there are two cool death sequences: Sung-wook's (pretty gory) and the demise of the school's nurse (whose legs we get to know quite well during this movie). The other deaths and horror moments are giveaways. They are badly edited and not that scary. Should I come to an end? OK, I'd rate the movie 5/10 because Eun-mi is really ... oh, well, you get the point.

Rating: 5/10
