Trailer, poster for The Box

The Box is an independent horror thriller by Chalart Sriwanna and Intanon Pictures. It stars Nirooth Sirijanya, Charin Sriwanna and Napakul Rattanakorn.

As to be expected from a U.S.-schooled filmmaker who's been doing TV commercials and music videos, the production values are professional and slick. It has some interesting suspense angles and imagery.

Here's the synopsis from the film's website:

Jane, after giving away a wooden box that was left to her by her mother, has recurring nightmares of her long lost mother coming to her asking for the box. Jane tracks it down to a big house located in the suburbs. There she meets an old man who at first seems to be nice, but turns out to be a psychotic murderer, who killed his wife and hid her corpse in the box. In a bizarre twist, the victim turns out to be Jane’s estranged mother. Jane ends up being the old man’s prisoner, he treats her like a living doll and plans to make her his new bride.

I'm not sure when this movie is coming out in Thailand, or if it has a distribution deal, though it has reportedly been submitted to the AFI Fest. And according to the director, he's aiming for international distribution first.
