TheHorrorShow - 3/10 by Scott WeinbergA familiar but creepy little shocker that boasts an exotic locale and some unpredictable moments.
User Review - 6/10 by Azoth SJust based on the cover of this movie, I was not expecting much at all. It looks like your typical bottom of the bin horror movie. After watching it though, I'm happy to report that I was left very pleasantly surprised. It's starts out with a gruesome torture porn esque scene, and I was hoping the whole movie wouldn't be that way, and it wasn't thankfully. The most gruesome scenes are within the first 15 minutes, and then a creepy, paranormal mystery begins to unfold. I found myself genuinely engaged in the situation of these girls, and interested in the mystery of what is going on. The directing, and pacing of the film were perfect for this story. In fact, the director impressed me several times during the film with the techniques employed. The biggest sore spot of this movie for me was the acting, the leads are not the greatest actresses, but they're passable, and don't totally ruin the movie. Although there was some noticeable cringeworthy acting in places. FX are done well throughout, and the writing is decent. VERDICT: C+ A low budget horror movie that exceeds expectations. The story's pacing plays out perfectly in the Thailand setting, and I found myself genuinely engrossed in the mystery of everything. The acting is a little rough around the edges, but it makes up for it's short comings with some genuine scares, and decent writing/directing. Still not a great horror movie, but better than the majority.
User Review - 6/10 by Suki S3.0 stars. This movie had a cool story, but I didn't care much for the acting. The brunette, Emily O'Brien was the best of the bunch. All of the girls were nice to look at, which leads me to feel that they were cast because of their looks not their acting chops. Most of the makeup FX was good, the CGI spots were not. I didn't care for the aerial shots, it seemed really jumpy. I also wish they had subtitles in the scene between the two Asian guys. All and all, I thought it was worth watching, just don't go into it expecting a fantastic product.
User Review - 6/10 by Charles CCheesy acting. Low budget. Extra gross. Typical horror movie decisions so I liked it. LOL
User Review - 4/10 by Jesse OThis film definitely has an intriguing enough concept to make you wanna see it through to the end. Ultimately, though, while the film has some good ideas, the whole thing ends up feeling like a substandard horror flick. The film has slasher and supernatural elements, combined to a surprisingly decent effect, but I don't think the film, honestly, has enough interest things to say in order to justify it going close to 90 minutes. Not to mention that, sometimes, not always, the whole thing just feels and looks cheap. I've never had a problem with low-budget films, in the least, to me, unless it looks like it was literally filmed on an iPhone by a pair of people who have a history of seizures then I had no problem. To me it's all about the content that the film offers. In cases where a film's narrative isn't clicking and I'm just not enjoying it, then that's usually when I notice and feel the need to point it out. For example, the whole Kumari legend in Thai culture is something that they could've gotten a lot more mileage out of and yet they didn't. Like they barely touch on it, essentially saying that they're meant to be worshiped and everything that involved the statue of the little girl covered in gold and how she wants vengeance. I think they pretty much simplify it and that's fine, this is a horror movie at its core, but it's not like the film simplifies it in order to tell a terrifying story. Maybe getting more into the details of why this is such a big deal in Thai culture might have been better. That's just me. There's also instances where the film's acting is absolutely horrendous. Like they just did one take, because they were short on time and probably over-budget, and they just refused to do any more takes, ala Ed Wood. The scene where the three leads go to see this witch, I guess, in order to learn more about the statue is just laughably bad. First of all, they have this ridiculously terrible wig on the character. It's obvious that they just put make-up on a young woman in order to make her look older, the wig being part of that, and it was just really laughable. Maybe it was meant to be like that, who the fuck knows. Secondly the dialogue is actually, and you can clearly notice this, performed by someone else instead of the actual actress playing the witch during post-production. Maybe the actress was really terrible and you couldn't understand her lines or anything, but it makes the film look really bush league. There's also this one scene, maybe not technically the fault of the film itself, where there's a lot of dialogue in Thai and yet it not subtitled. Not one fucking subtitle for a scene that, with the amount of Thai dialogue and the fact that it was close to the end, after the reveal of what really happened, seemed to be like it was immensely important and yet there was no subtitles whatsoever. Maybe we were never meant to understand, but if that were the case then the scene wouldn't have been as long as it was. It's like a 3-minute scene, all in Thai. So you can imagine how fucking annoying that was. Completely missing out on something that seems essential. That takes points away for sure. With that out of the way, the film isn't really terrible. It's just not interesting or good enough to justify its length. There's things about it that are terrible, like some of the acting, but there's some good moments and ideas here. It's just that they're not used to maximum effect. So, therefore, the film ends up falling flat on a lot of what it does. It could've been considerably worse though. I still wouldn't recommend it, not in the least.
User Review - 4/10 by Paul DGory in parts, it never gets that interesting beyond these scenes.
User Review - 4/10 by Brian CThree arrogant American tourists get into some crazy adventures when the evil spirit of a murdered girl is released. The ladies then experience strange dreams, and their new friends go missing. All of this leads to an interesting tale of revenge and sadness. Pretty well acted and effects-wise was very well done. The characters of the three ladies though were horrible. They were just typical American tourists and while the story was great, it was hard to feel any empathy for them. The backdrop of Thailand was great, as well as the Thai folklore that this movie is based on.
User Review - 2/10 by Elliott CThere are at least two scenes where peoples tongues are ripped out of their mouths, which is probably two scenes too many. There is a "creature" that somehow manages to be completely disturbing to look at while not being scary in the slightest. I'm not even sure what I watched.
User Review - 2/10 by Johnny WThis is the dumbest movie you'll ever see. I've seen bad movies, but this takes the cake. The characters are all stupid and the acting makes it even worse. It's not scary and the story has different twist that make no sense what so ever.
User Review - 2/10 by Don STorture is not horror! Just a bad movie overall
