A production crew from a Bangkok advertising agency has been driving through the night to reach their destination before their deadline ends. Little did they know that the word 'deadline' was going to leave an everlasting impression on their souls. Late at night after many hours of driving, Lae a precocious man with a large sexual appetite is involved in a head on collision with a large ten-wheel-truck. All seven of the victims believed they have escaped the terror until they step out of the mini van and find themselves in the middle of a dark and dissolute world full of demons, pain and torture.

The fate of all seven rests with Art and Ja, members of the production team who find themselves in hell before their time is due.


If you ask us, “Hell” is quite a rude title to have for a movie. The word is never associated with anything nice, and unfortunately, that is true for this Thai movie too.

The 2005 horror and gore fest directed by Sathit Praditsarn and Teekayu Thamnitayakul tells the story of a group of colleagues who meet with an accident while traveling and gets sent to the netherworld to get punished for their mortal sins. That place is no happy place, as anyone would tell you. So begins a 92-minute extravaganza of gross makeup and gruesome moments.

The movie does attempt to develop some themes of how we should live our lives properly so we won’t suffer during our afterlives, but these well-meaning messages are lost in the filmmakers’ obsession to exploit those countless brutal and bloody torture scenes in the movie.

While this picture is strictly for fans of dreadfully distasteful monsters, ghouls and corpses, we sense some campiness we haven’t seen in horror movies for some time. Call us sadistic, but it was rather fun to see how warped some people’s minds can be.

Of course, it will only be a matter of time when you get sick and tired of the same old tactics used repeatedly in this movie.

Sure, we’d be laughing at the predictable moments, the silly-looking hell-lords and the obligatory cast of characters, but remember – do not incur too much bad karma, or you may just end up in the same sorry states as them.

After all, it is better to be safe than sorry.
