Jesus is a drug dealer in GTH's Countdown
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.
