Teenagers Pin, Mos and Muay don’t believe in ghosts. One night after a party, they decided to explore an abandoned house that is rumored to be haunted. Mos suggest that they visit a spirit house that is supposedly scarier due to its notorious history of phantom sightings. After the visit, the group is afflicted by a run of bad luck; horrible accidents seem to follow them around, gradually straining their relationship to breaking point. It’s as if a dastardly evil power is dogging the trio, committed to break their spirit.


It is very baffling how the genre of Asian horror has spawned this movie characters that do the silliest things, despite knowing that they will face a deadly fate by doing so. With characters that are not the most intelligent around, we continue to search of good horror flicks that will scare some daylights out of us. Unfortunately, this Thai movie does not have the X factor to fall into that category.

Three girls decide to visit an obviously haunted house and live to suffer the consequences.

Wow, that is the shortest summary of a movie plot this reviewer has written in a while.

The characters are already not very clever enough to know that they have been spooked by spirits; we wonder why director Montri Kong-Im recruited cast who cannot act very well. Although these three girls look sweet and demure, they look like they belong more in a school video production.

The scares in this Thai flick are sub standard too, with the obligatory long-haired ghost with some bad make up, and some wrist-slashing psychopath with some bad mockup blood.

Some good atmospheres are set up, but eventually become too repetitive for its own good.

There was some potential for some really good scares, with some of the spirits in traditional Thai costumes and moving to the beats of the traditional Thai dance. Sadly, this is marred by uneven pacing of the movie, which will make you uninterested of whatever is going on after a while.

And one last thing to complain before this reviewer sounds like a whiner: please do not use the “oh, it was just a dream” scare scene more than once. If possible, avoid it at all costs because it is such an uncalled for horror movie trick.
