Whispering Corridors 5: A Blood Pledge
The fifth film in the Whispering Corridors series of horror films set at all girls’ high schools, the 2009 horror suspense A Blood Pledge revolves around four schoolgirls who make a suicide pact together. The first feature from director Lee Jong Yong, who previously worked under Park Chan Wook on JSA and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, A Blood Pledge unravels a bloodcurdling tale of friendship gone wrong, slowly revealing the dynamics of jealousy, betrayal, and paranoia that build to gruesome, ghostly consequences. The Whispering Corridors films have launched the careers of many well-known actresses including Kim Min Sun, Kim Ok Bin, Kim Kyu Ri, Seo Ji Hye, and Choi Kang Hee. This time the spotlight goes to five up-and-coming young actresses – Son Eun Seo, Jang Kyeong Ah, Song Min Jeong, Oh Yeon Seo, and Yoo Shin Ae – who just may be Korean Cinema’s next big stars.
Whispers and rumors spread quickly through an all girls high school when student Eon Joo (Jang Kyeong Ah) jump to her death from the school’s rooftop. Eon Joo’s younger sister Jeong Eon (Yoo Shin Ae) investigates the cause behind her sister’s suspicious death. She learns that on that fateful night, Eun Joo and three other girls – So Hee (Son Eun Seo), Eun Yeong (Song Min Jeong), Yoo Jin (Oh Yeon Seo) – made a pact to die together. But Eon Joo is the only one who has died… for now.
