On DVD in Taiwan: The Fatality

The Thai-Taiwanese supernatural psychological horror thriller The Fatality is out on DVD in Taiwan. Which means it has English subtitles in addition to the soundtrack that's in Mandarin and Thai.

It's available at YesAsia.

Directed by Tiwa Moeithaisong, The Fatality (Tok Tra Phee) was released in Thailand in January, and in Taiwan last November, and it also played at the International Film Festival Rotterdam as part of the Hungry Ghosts program.

Taiwanese singer Kenji Wu stars in a dual role as a mentally troubled Taiwanese street person who suddenly wakes up in Thailand and finds that he's in the body of a Thai civil servant who's just come out of a coma. People are calling him Asanee but he doesn't understand what they are saying because he can't speak Thai. Plus he's seeing dead people. And the real Asanee wants his soul back.

Pitchanart Sakakorn (The Victim) stars as the Thai guy's duplicitous wife. The cast also features Taiwanese actor Matt Wu, Hong Kong actor Sam Lee and Thai comic actor Somlek Sakdikul.

The Fatality immediately preceded Tiwa's bloody Meat Grinder, which was censored in Thailand.
