Jesus is a drug dealer in GTH's Countdown

GTH is perhaps best known for its feel-good romantic comedies and dramas, but the studio also has a reputation for its slick horror thrillers.

Nonetheless, GTH's release in Thai cinemas this week, Countdown
(เคาท์ดาวน์, Kaadao), is a departure of sorts, venturing into Rated 18+ territory with a dark tale involving Thai stoners.
Indie filmmaker Nattawat Poonpiriya makes his major-studio feature debut directing this remake of his 2010 short film about three young Thai hipsters who share an apartment in New York City. They want to have a rocking New Year's Eve party and call a drug dealer named Jesus to help out. However, the druggie Jesus has other ideas about how to have fun, and he makes the trio's night a living hell.

GTH regulars Pachara Chirathivat, Patarasaya Krueasuwansiri and Jarinporn Junkiet star.

There's an English-subtitled trailer. Check it out below.

  1. I'm kinda eager to see how a trio of Thai hipster druggies end up faring in a NYC horror-scape.

Please, no questions about where to download movies or subtitle files.

Please read the FAQ about Thai films on DVD before asking about where to find a Thai movie on DVD with English subtitles.
