On DVD in Hong Kong: Spiritual World and Scared


A couple more Thai horror films from a few years back have recently turned up on English-friendly DVD in Hong Kong: 2007's The Spiritual World (วิญญาณ โลก คนตาย) and 2005's Scared (รับน้องสยองขวัญ), both originally released by Sahamongkolfilm International.

The synopsis for Spiritual World from YesAsia:

Sometimes, the truth is scarier than ghosts ...

Directed by Tharatap Thewsomboon, the moody Thai horror Spiritual World slowly gets under the skin with the story of a troubled young woman being haunted by the ghosts of the past. Ever since she was a little girl, Ming (Nuttamonkan Srinikornchot) has been able to see ghosts. Wandering between the living and the dead, she encounters beckoning spirits and mysterious spectres no matter where she goes. For the past 15 years, Ming has constantly moved from one place to another in order to escape a ghost that has been following her. One day, childhood friend Buud (Anuchit Sapanpong) suddenly shows up, and asks for her help to find out the truth behind his father's death. Buud's appearance awakens Ming's buried memories, including vague recollections of the ghost that has been chasing after her.

YesAsia also has Scared:

Battle Royale meets Thai horror in the slasher-thriller Scared. Directed by Pakphum Wonjinda, Scared follows a group of teenagers on a retreat who get lost in a forest when their bus falls down a wooden bridge. Just when things can't seem to get any worse, a brutal serial killer begins to kill the teens off one by one. In line with classic slasher films like Friday the 13th and Halloween, Wonjinda comes up with plenty of inventive ways for the killer to dispatch the innocent teens, making Scared perverse fun for fans of the genre.
