Top star Ririko undergoes multiple cosmetic surgeries to her entire body. As her surgeries show side effect, Ririko makes the lives of those around her miserable as she tries to deal with her career and her personal problems.
NEW BLOOD was obviously made to cash in on the current horror fad running wild through Hong Kong cinema at the moment. It employs all the same conventions of the genre, including garish green tint, somber acting, and one of those spirits that shows up in quick spurts ala Shock Flashes that horror filmmakers seem required to do nowadays. The movie offers up a Big Twist at the end, but it seems somewhat perfunctory and not very well thought out.
Even so, NEW BLOOD has a good actress as its lead, and the movie, although it's quite conventional, nevertheless benefits from the director's visual flairs. No CGI or elaborate special effects here, only a ton of fake blood and a lot of creativity with the camera. The editing and use of sound is also quite well done.
