The film is directed by Paween Purijitpanya, a former assistant to the Pang Brothers. The Subhanahongsa Award-nominated script was written by the 13 Beloved duo of Chukiat Sakweerakul and Ekasit Thairat , and was produced by Grammy Tai Hub, the same production company that did Shutter and Alone. It won the Subhanahongsa for Best Visual Effects -- a richly deserved accolade, because the visuals were one of Body #19's strongest aspects.
The film stars Arak Amornsupasiri of the Thai rock band Slur, as a guy who's having bad dreams about a grisly murder and dismemberment that took place in his house. The horrible visions are steadily becoming more real. They involve a corpsified woman with her guts hanging out and, following the conventions of Asian horror, long, greasy black hair. Various other shocks and horrors await. Aside from the special effects, I enjoyed the performance by the always-intense Thai actress Patharawarin Timkul, who plays a university lecturer with black-magic powers.
