A South Korean journalist and a Japanese cameraman in South Korea are invited to an abandoned apartment one day. They are invited by a murderer and they know it. While there they stumble upon a video featuring the murderer. The police believe the wanted criminal has committed eighteen murders, but the criminal claims he has already killed 25. He furthermore claims that if he completes the killing of all 27 on his list not only his dead friend will be resurrected, but also all 27 will come back to life.

A Record of Sweet Murder comes to us from Unearthed Films and is directed by Lee Sei-Jong. Yes, the same director that gave us the infamous Grotesque. Here a reporter and a Japanese cameraman is heading to see her childhood friend who just so happens to be a murderer on the loose. He requests that they film everything from start to finish with no break and what follows is what makes up the movie. Now, I’d like to dive right into what we get here and more details on the plot but it’s kind of hard to do so without spoiling what happens and some key parts of the film. I’ll just say that the movie manages to make the found footage film interesting again, which is a hard thing for any movie to do these days and that is evolving around an idea that the movie’s killer has and trying to figure out if he’s crazy or not is what drives you to watch as the events of the movie unfold. It isn’t the bloodiest movie you’ll find, but it does have blood and it does packs some very shocking moments that make it a very solid film for anyone to check out.

The female reporter here is played by kim kkot-bi who does a fantastic job of selling this one from her side of things. You can really tell what her character is thinking for the most of the movie and a good deal of that is because you yourself might be running along the same way of thinking as she is during the movie. While a lot of time you think of violence and shock when it comes to movies released by Unearthed Films, A Record of Sweet Murder is one that is a very good movie and a very clever one as well. It is one that keeps you guessing as it plays out and once it’s done you feel very satisfied with what you see. It’s also a nice example for the director Lee Sei-Jong and what he can do despite the swing and a miss that was his Sadako vs. Kayako.
