Phobia- New Thail horror on DVD

Phobia is a compendium movie that features short terror tales by some of Thailand's hottest directors...


Four of Thailand’s hottest new directors and masters of the macabre – Paween Purikitpanya (Body), Yongyoot Thongkongtoon (Best Of Times; Metrosexual; Iron Ladies) and the co-directing team responsible for ‘Shutter’, Banjong Pisanthanakun and Parkpoom Wongpoom (Shutter) – come together to serve up a fresh feast of fear in the horror anthology, Phobia, coming to DVD in May 2010.

Featuring four self-contained but tenuously connected tales of terror, Phobia is a visually stylish and compelling fright flick for fans of short, sharp, shock horror compendia such as ‘Tales From The Crypt’. ‘Twilight Zone: The Movie’ and ‘Creepshow’.

Yongyoot Thongkongtoon kicks things off with ‘Happiness’, a dialogue-free instalment featuring a teenage girl, housebound due to injuries received in a taxi accident, whose only connection to the outside world is via her mobile phone. Another boring evening starts to look promising when she begins receiving friendly text messages from a mysterious boy. Things take a turn for the worse when it becomes apparent that the texts are being sent from beyond the grave by a lonely corpse and he’s very keen to meet up… with…

In ‘T*t For Tat’ a group of dope-smoking school bullies face bloody, ‘Final Destination’-style retribution when their latest victim, a fellow student, seeks revenge via black magic and a terrifying curse from which there is no escape. Or is there? Paween Purikitpanya’s hyper-kinetic directing style, unexpectedly creative death scenes and generous helpings of gore deliver a thrilling tale with a suitably gruesome pay-off.

A self-referential horror-comedy that manages to give passing nods to ‘Titanic’, ‘The Sixth Sense’, ‘The Others’ and the director’s own ‘Shutter’, amongst other movies, Banjong Pisanthanakun’s ‘In The Middle’ even has one character posing the question: “Why are ghosts always females with white faces and long, straight dark hair?” That’s definitely not the case in this story of four youths on a camping and white river rafting trip that takes a creepy turn when one of their number goes missing after their dinghy capsizes. Giggles and gasps are produced in equal measure in a segment that will delight film fans, especially those who don’t like to have the endings of movies ruined by inconsiderate friends.

Directed by Parkpoom Wongpoom, ‘Last Flight’ takes the movie’s shock factor to new heights as the sole stewardess on a flight taking home the body of a deceased princess is haunted, mid-air, by the woman whose marriage she wrecked and who she accidentally killed. Taut, claustrophobic and full of unexpected scares, ‘Last Flight’ is a textbook example of effective, short, horror filmmaking.

Phobia (cert. 15) will be released on DVD (£12.99) by Icon Home Entertainment on 10th May 2010. Special Features include 'Making of' featurette.
