Storyline

Blood Rain tells the story of a slew of grisly murders plaguing a small, fairly isolated island village. However, it's not just the mounting death toll that's causing residents to worry, but the sadistic, methodical way in which the victims were killed. With the killer still on the loose, the government sends in special investigator Wong Gyu (Cha Seung Won) to crack the case. While conducting his dogged investigation, he soon uncovers a myriad of hidden secrets, tracing the murders back to an incident that occurred some seven years earlier. The previous owner of the village's paper mill was executed as a Christian. Does that mean that the murdered man's spirit has come back to seek bloody retribution? The real truth, Wong Gyu learns, may be far more terrifying... Written by luraz isketambola

Did You Know?

Quotes

Inspector Lee's father: Did you find the answer?
Inspector Lee Won-kyu: Yes, we can't accept even a grain of barley.
Inspector Lee's father: Why is that?
Inspector Lee Won-kyu: The landowner has supplies of emergency grain. A true person of the people must show mercy to the farmers.
Inspector Lee's father: A farmer feeds his cow, even if it can't complete it's work. That way, it can till the fields later. Public sentiment can be dangerous, so extremes should be avoided. Those punished in harsh times will be uncontrollable later.

Surprisingly good
4 June 2006 | by andriy-tanatarSee all my reviews

On an isolated island, a horrific fire and a mysterious murder break the usual way of life. The victim died in the same way as the son of an executed Catholic, so the locals are scared to death that the ghost of the dead start taking its evil toll...

What could have been a start for yet another awful Japanese horror movie or an overtly-long, boring and unrealistic Chinese epic actually happens in the first 10 minutes of a great Korean picture. Despite the fact that the movie is set in 19th century Korea, the movie itself could have easily been shot about France or the USA (with appropriate time adjustment) - and, frankly, would the Americans want to shoot a remake they would need to change surprisingly little as the film is very European in its style. Surprisingly, the authors find a lot of room not only for suspense, but for a very deep study of the fear, the guilt and the responsibility in a very clear, articulate way.

To put it short: if you watch Asian movies for more than fake kung-fu and surreal jumping action, you should definitely see this one. It's much better than most of the things that went out this year in the USA.
