Sophon Sakdaphisit is the horror writer who spun a sense of dread about looking at photos in Shutter. He made being a formerly conjoined twin sibling a hellish affair in Alone. And he made folks scared of pirating movies and visiting the cinema in Coming Soon.
He's now set his sights on the posh housing developments that are popping up around the edges of Thailand's cities with Laddaland (ลัดดาแลนด์, a.k.a. The Lost Home).
Starring Saharat Sungkhapreecha and Piyathida Worramusik, the thriller has a family who are happy in their home until ghostly things start cropping up.
The tale is based on fact – an housing development in Chiang Mai that was eventually abandoned after a series of unexplained deaths.
You can read more about the writer-director, who's jokingly nicknamed "Jim Carpenter", in a Bangkok Post story by Kong Rithdee.
There's also a trailer, embedded below.
Laddaland is in cinemas this week by GTH, going head-to-head with the likes of Thor, Drive Angry and another big Thai studio release, the martial-arts comedy Jakkalan, starring Jeeja Yanin, directed by Mum Jokmok and released by Sahamongkol.
