Starring Karen Mok and Ananda Everingham, the English-language thriller is inspired by the true Thai custom of laying in a coffin to change your bad luck.
Bit of different take on the Thai poster compared to the Korean poster, with the Korean poster going for a hair-ghost feel while the Thai poster features a suitably bloody and sombre pose for ubiquitous Bangkok-based leading man Ananda.
Andrew Li, Aki Shibuya and Thai actress Napakpapha Nakprasitte also star.
The trailer has been floating around the net for a bit, first on the official Korean website and it surfaced later on YouTube. It's pretty powerful stuff. There's some pretty imagery, but if you're the least bit claustrophobic, you probably shouldn't watch. And if you don't think you are claustrophobic, this might make you change your mind. The trailer is embedded below.
