This is less a horror film than an investigation of the antagonistic relationships of the girls involved. I found this rather confusing due to the girls, who all wear the same uniform looking, to my eye, very alike and my difficulty in remembering the unfamiliar Korean names. (I've seen enough Japanese films to have no problem with Japanese names.) If my problems are not yours you will probably think this film is something of a slow burner with the odd bit of quick, violent, horror very much in the style of the previous ghost school films. If you like your ghost stories more psychological than blood drenched this will be your sort of film, and if not a masterpiece,not a bad one at that.

Being a Korean horror fan, I grabbed this off the shelf with little thought and it's only subsequently I've learned that this is actually 'Whispering Corridors 5'. Don't worry about that though, as a bit like the Vengeance Trilogy they are all stand alone films that simply follow a similar theme.

'A Blood Pledge' tells of a suicide pact between a group of high school friends in which only one of them goes through with it. I'm not spoiling anything here as this context is established after just a couple of minutes.

What follows is the investigation of the dead girl's sister, who tries to find answers against a brick wall of silence from the rest of the group. As the film pans out we learn more of the back story of each of the other 'pledgers' and what brought them to there current mental states.

As you'd expect from a Korean horror flick the scares are well delivered - if anything there are a few too many and as such the tension levels never really reach the heights of some of the better known offerings (A Tale of Two Sisters, The Grudge etc). That said, all of the elements are there to make 'A Blood Pledge' a very decent, if a little lightweight horror tale. (Acting, plot, characterisation etc are all fine).

If I'm being honest it is at times a little difficult to work out who's who and how they all linked together; especially given the breakneck pace that Korean teenagers seem to talk at! Once I'd got my head around everything, I really quite enjoyed this film. 'A Blood Pledge' isn't a classic, but at the same time it's find to find fault really, so I'd happily recommend that Asian horror fans take a look.

Just as a side note, where are all the teachers in Korean schools?!

Enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Friendship and Betrayal 8 Jan. 2017
By Leslie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The final installment in the Whispering Corridors anthology is a good old-fashioned mystery wrapped in a ghost story. What happened, who did it, and why are so engrossing that the literal darkness of parts of this film - during which it is nearly impossible to see what is happening - was double-frustrating for me.

Beyond that, though, is a tale about how school girl betrayal is no joke and how everyone has a story to tell, and it might not be the one you think it is. You can find this film streaming online if you look for it, but it is good enough that, like the rest of the series, I wanted to have a copy. Recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fitting close (if it's actually the close) 31 Oct. 2011
By Siege - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I've now seen every Whispering Corridors (a.k.a. High School Horror) film now and am torn between happiness that it's finally over and sadness that the last film in the series is probably the best overall one. Like the previous four films, everything circles around a group of private school girls who did something vindictive that led to a death and caused the dead person to come back and seek vengeance as a pissed off ghost. It's the same formula in each series, mixed with different characters and places. I would be lying if I said the formula wasn't wearing thin after five (!) movies about teenage angst, petty squabbling, and freaky ghost chicks, but I still enjoyed it nonetheless. Mind you, it doesn't have acting up to par with Wishing Stairs (part 3), effects worthy of Voice (part 4), or the campy fun of Whispering Corridors (part 1), but it's still a fun little film with cheap scares and the acting is passable for the most part. From the beginning, I felt for Soy (Eun-Seo Son) and the predicament she got herself into as the unknowing scapegoat in the scheme by stuck-up princess Yoo-Jin (Yeon-Su Oh) to basically destroy Soy's best friend Eon-ju (Kyeong-ah Jang) for some petty reason that never quite makes sense (except by maybe saying that Yoo-Jin is an evil witch who deserves to die). This movie, aside from the surprising ending, is pretty black and white in terms of characters. You will feel that those who die deserved it once you learn exactly what they did and those who live seem to be the purest of the innocent. All in all, a fun time not quite worth the purchase price and a fitting end to a now five film series that has run for over a decade and shows its age. Rent it if you can.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Blood Pledge is a frightening experience and a great addition to the Whispering Corridors series... (3.5/5) 17 July 2013
By Jonathan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Eon-Joo jumps off a building in an all-girls high school. So-Hee, Yoo-jin, and Joo-yeon are questioned about the incident as they were supposed to meet Eon-Joo that night, but were running late. The truth is: they all had a blood pledge to commit suicide together. Rumors of foul play begin to develop, and the three surviving girls begin to experience a disturbing haunting. A Blood Pledge is a frightening experience and a great addition to the Whispering Corridors series.

The story is very simple and easy-to-follow - the easiest in the series. The story begins with a vivid suicide - a student jumping from a school building. Rumors of foul play and broken relationships begin to spread. While Yoo-jin and Joo-yeon try to hide the truth, So-Hee suffers from the loss of a close friend - ironically she's accused of murder and bullying. The mystery, the horror, and the drama all lead up to a chilling yet bittersweet ending (as with most, if not all, of the Whispering Corridors series.) The horror elements in this film are very blatant - it's not subtle or atmospheric horror. A Blood Pledge uses some violence, plenty of jump-scares, and a blood-drenched ghost to deliver the scares. I like the fact that the ghost is used so strongly this time around, definitely a welcomed change in the formula. However, I do miss the dense, terrifying atmosphere of the past entries. It simply doesn't feel like a genuine haunting without the atmosphere of the previous entries.

The acting was great from the entire cast; everything feels like an authentic school. This is the bloodiest entry in the series (bloody clothing, bloody eyes, etc.) The special effects are well-done - from the ghostly makeup to the brutal suicides. Cinematography was solid, exceptional during a few scenes; it was a lot better in Voice. The music was great. The film also had a fast, consistent pace and a short runtime making this an efficient time-killer.

Overall, A Blood Pledge is the purest (as in, easiest to identify and traditional) horror film in the Whispering Corridors (next to Wishing Stairs). It uses some light drama elements and some effective jump-scares and tension to create a frightening experience. It's a great way to kill a night, especially if you're a fan of Asian horror. I recommend a purchase for fans of the genre or the series, a rental otherwise.

A Blood Pledge has strong violence and blood.
