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.
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.
