BLOODY REUNION

DVD Review by David Blackwell

DETAILS: 93 minutes, three featurettes, delted scenes, photo shoot, original trailer

VIDEO: (Anamorphic Widescreen)

AUDIO: Korean 5.1, 2.0 Dolby Surround, 5.1 DTS

Subtitles: English

STUDIO: Tartan Asia Extreme/ Show East Co. LTD/ Ozone Film/ Fine Works

RELEASE DATE: 3-13 -2007

BLOODY REUNION is like if South Korea took the plot for THE USUAL SUSPECTS and turned it into a horror/ slasher film. The final twists are what set BLOODY REUNION apart from just beinga slasher film.

I wouldn't really go to a reunion with a my favorite teacher. Not my kind of thing. I have visited my old teachers (not ian reunion setting with other students). Anyway the old classmates start revealing old grudges against the ailing woman teacher (who is in a wheelchair) and they die off one by one in very bloody ways. Is it the deformed son of the teacher or the shy kid who showed back up?  The story makes each former elementary school student come off as imperfect and they all blame the teacher for their flaws.  I thought all hope was lost for BLOODY REUNION until about 25 minutes in.  It starts with the classic flashback structure as a cop questions about what went wrong, but the twist ties everything together.

SPECIAL FEATURES: Three deleted scenes with opitional director commentary show what they excised to make the movie better. THE MAKING OF BLOODY REUNION is 28 minutes of behind-the-scenes production footage mixed in with film clips. SPECIAL EFFECTS AND MAKE-UP also covers the regrets the production team had like the director wished they could have got the details of the basement better on film while another memeber says the apartment was too thematic. Also included is an interview with director Lim Dae-Woong and the original theatrical trailer with Tartan previews for othter titels (PERTH, THE RED SHOES, H6, and others)

FINAL ANALYSIS: BLOODY REUNION is a horor film with plenty of gorey deaths and some great twists at the end.
