Another highly anticipated film from Five Star Production and Muay Thai Chaiya director Kongkiat Komesiri is the bloody crime thriller Slice.
Co-scripted by Wisit Sasanatieng, it's the story of a convicted hitman named Tai ("Pe" Arak Amornsupasiri) who is sprung from prison and tasked by the police with tracking down a serial killer.
There is a definite Silence of the Lambs feel to this, with a red-silk-draped killer dispatching his (or her?) victims, who are then strung up on display or packed into a suitcase. The gore is laid on hot and heavy, although nothing less is to be expected from one of the co-directors of the Art of the Devil series.
Veteran actor Chatchai Plengpanich (Necromancer, Hitman File) also stars, donning a head of shocking white hair for a role that could very well be the best thing he's ever done. The supporting actor's supporting actor Sonthaya Chitmanee also stars.

Slice opens in Thai cinemas on October 22. It will be interesting to see what rating it will get. Will it be the first 20+ movie released, or just 18+?
