Oops ... There's Dad at American Film Market


There are more Thai films at the American Film Market, which is running November 2 to 9 in Santa Monica.

In addition to the previously noted crop of Thai horror films, Hell, Scared and P, there's Art of the Devil 2 as well as two new projects The Routine and The Unseeable. This is according to ThaiCinema.org.

There is also Wai Ounlawon 4: 30 Years Later, which is now being marketed as Oops ... There's Dad, which makes it sound like a Disney family comedy - not a bad idea when trying to sell a feel-good family comedy to the West.

A sequel to Wai Ounlawon, a popular 1970s film, I for no good reason missed 30 Years Later when it was in cinemas earlier this year. I'm kicking myself now, because I'm sure it was actually one of the better Thai films this year. I'm sure I'll be hearing more about it from other Thai film fans, and when the Thai film awards crop up early next year.
