The second feature from Kim Dae-seung, the award-winning director of the 2001 romantic drama, "Bungee Jumping Of Their Own," Blood Rain is a gripping and grisly period detective thriller set in 19th century Korea starring Cha Seung-won ("Eye For An Eye"; "Kick The Moon").
It is a time of feudal barons and superstition. An island community is shocked when a ship bound for the imperial courts inexplicably bursts into flames. On board was a cargo of handcrafted paper from the island's factory, a place harboring something sinister.
Detective Won-kyu (Cha Seung-won) is dispatched to investigate only to discover the community in the grip of terror. A series of murders convinces them a malevolent spirit is responsible, taking revenge for crimes that no one wants to talk about, pronouncing predictions of doom when the Blood Rain falls. Won-kyu follows an increasingly corpose-riddled trail that not only threatens his life but also is set to reveal a dark secret that links him to the village's shameful past.
A refreshing and fiendishly intriguing serial killer mystery thriller, Blood Rain takes a traditional detective tale and relocates it to an earlier age, much in the spirit of "In The Name Of The Rose" and "Brotherhood Of The Wolf." The film's lavish production values add a pleasing richness to the proceeding whilst the unexpected and extremely grisly violence is at times as shocking as that in any current Asian thriller. Blood Rain is a delightfully dark and devious who-dunnit told with style and intelligence.
