Phobia 2 is heading for Toronto.
The slick package of horror shorts is among the titles announced yesterday for Toronto After After Dark.
Phobia 2 (Haa Phrang, 5 แพร่ง, literally "five crossroads") is the work of five directors at GTH studio: Paween Purijitpanya (Body #19), executive producer Visute Poolvoralaks making his directorial debut, Songyos Sugmakanan (Dorm) and one each from the Shutter/Alone duo of Parkpoom Wongpoom and Banjong Pisanthanakun.
Here's more from TADFF:
From the same group of filmmakers that scared fans out of their seats with Toronto After Dark audience hits Alone (2007) and Phobia (2008) comes this highly anticipated sequel. Phobia 2 brings back three of the directors from Phobia, and adds two new ones, presenting five new terrifying and gruesome tales from Thailand. A delinquent youth seeks refuge in a rural monastery, only to anger the local Gods. A young man admitted to hospital finds himself in the room of a near-dead cult leader who has other plans for his soul. A teenage couple attempting to hitchhike to the city finds themselves on the run from drug-running zombies. A shady used car saleswoman finds herself alone at night and under attack. And three young filmmakers attempt to keep their cool when one of the cast members comes back from the dead to finish the movie. A sure classic from the current golden age of Thai horror.
Phobia 2 recently screened at the just-wrapped Fantasia fest in Montreal and the Asian Film Festival of Dallas.
Toronto After Dark runs from August 13 to 20.
