Website, teaser for 9 Wat (Secret Sunday)

The official website has been updated with a teaser for the thriller Secret Sunday (9 Wat, 9 วัด), which stars a newly blond "Noon" Siriphun Wattanajinda and James Mackie.

Directed by Saranyoo Jiralak and produced by the Oriental Eyes company, it's set for release on February 18 -- the first release under a distribution deal with Columbia Tristar Buena Vista.

You can take a peek at the teaser on the film's website or Shock 'Til You Drop has it, as well as synopsis:

At his mother's request, Nat, a young architect, unwillingly takes a journey to visit nine different temples in order to clean up his bad karma. He is accompanied by Poon, his beauty columnist girlfriend and Sujitto, a young monk who takes care of the Tripitaka house and is responsible for the chant to chase away the bad karma.

All three characters have different purposes for taking this trip, but later on they discover that they are put together in this trip for an unforeseeable reason. A karma committed by one person could relate to karma of others. Horrifying acts done in their previous lives reveal themselves as the journey go by. The more they try to clean up Nat's bad karmas by making a merit, the closer they get to "THEM."

Nine is a numerologically auspicious number, and it's common for Thai Buddhists to visit nine temples during the January 1 New Year or April's Thai New Year for good luck.

Update: The teaser is at YouTube and is embedded below.
