With many sensational details, continuous “turns” that surprised the audience, not only received high appreciation for the acting and script, the film also received the attention of the creepy spiritual world. .
Spirituality is always a topic that filmmakers “desire” to conquer because they always bring excitement and curiosity, but it is a big challenge because building those elements has never been a challenge. easy story. Happy Blood seems to have met the audience’s need to “be” afraid when skillfully building a creepy spiritual world as a material to explain the tragedy of the whole movie.
From “Grace on” – superstition in the world of human belief…
The appearance of “Grace on” throughout the film is seen as a spiritual force that “psychically manipulates” the entire family by strange customs and views. This is also the cause of tragic stories, callous actions among family members with the ultimate aim of serving blindly.
This factor was passed from her mother-in-law (Reputed Artist Le Thien) to Ms. Phuong herself (People’s Artist Kim Xuan) and her children, who believed that they would be punished if they did not agree, even if they could not bear children. Boys are also a crime. This world of beliefs has manipulated the characters, gradually turning them into intrigues, cunning and ready to take callous actions to please “Thank you above”.
The rituals of offering offerings in the film are considered not to follow any beliefs, but they constantly make the viewer “shiver” many times. Blissful Blood has skillfully used mysterious spiritual materials to create more creepy elements. From the stage of preparing the scene of the altar “Under grace”, the charms in the altar room or the soul sealing area are prepared very carefully. Without using familiar spiritual elements, almost all details are created and combined completely new.
If you watch closely, it’s not difficult to see that the film’s atmosphere is covered with a red color, signaling a series of terrifying events falling on the Vuong Dinh family. The devilish red color symbolizes the tragedy or the very nature of each person – It seems to be bright but full of melancholy. They are also the embodiment of the blind faith that Mrs. Phuong has for “Grace”, the only light that imprisons prejudices and selfishness in her love.
To the “changing life” ceremony with the creepy “five element death”…
The key to the tragedies of Vinh An (Dr. Tien) and Thai Phong (Huu Tai) came from the “change of life” ceremony, which is also one of the scenes that made viewers “goosebumps”. Specifically, both brothers have the same life, even though they don’t have the same mother, while Thai Phong is predicted to have a good life, Vinh An has a murderous bow, full of blood in front. This is also the reason why Mrs. Phuong changed her life to protect her son.
Destiny changed life – life changed life – destiny changed destiny: All repeated like a cycle with no way out. The bondage in the chain of fate seems to have tightened both Vinh An and Thai Phong in the midst of unjust hatreds. Although they have spiritual elements, they are clearly derived from very practical things in personality, in the end it is people who are really scary.
However, it was Mrs. Phuong who violated the taboo, causing “Grace above” to punish them both with “the death of the five elements” – Kim, Moc, Thuy, Hoa, and Tho. In the folk view, the five elements represent the transformation of all things in heaven and earth, which is harmony and unity in a whole, however, if you violate the principle, you will also have to pay the same price as other things. “debt” for everything to return to balance. The death of the members one after another can also be understood as the “cause and effect” of life after the mistakes they have made.
In addition, Vinh An’s car number is also installed with spiritual details. Specifically, the number 6666 is a symbol of love and family, but it also contains dark things related to the afterlife. Or the detail of the eyeless, sewn-in doll is the embodiment of Vong Nam’s “puppet” (Tuyet Quyen) – One of the daughters who was abandoned by her own family because of the backward thought of favoring men, despise women. Besides, the detail of Mrs. Phuong covering the ashes of her husband’s mistress also created a novel effect for the film. From a spiritual perspective, this is an extremely scary witchcraft that makes the soul unable to escape. The film boldly exploits this aspect, but they are not the cause for spiritual phenomena, after all the jar of ashes is covered, only as a “background” for the grudges of the children who are accidentally caught up. this vortex.
Not only to create a horror space, all of the above factors also partly help viewers visualize the next stories, as well as explore the mysterious “creative” spiritual world. Happy Blood is tinged with horror most of the scenes, but everything happens in a very reasonable way, in the end the knots in the script are explained by the hatred and selfishness of people.
Happy Blood tells the story of the Vuong Dinh family with a strange faith that operates the family’s faith and prosperity. At an important event, a series of tragedies occurred when this family was suddenly punished by the evil god “Grace above” by “five elements, five elements”…
