They don’t know what they did Last Summer

Three high-schoolers are haunted by the spirit of a star pupil in Last Summer (ฤดูร้อนนั้น ฉันตาย, Rue Doo Ron Nan Chan Tai), the first release by a new production shingle, Talent 1 Movie Studio. It opened in Thai cinemas this week.

Scripted by Kongdej Jaturanrasmee – the nearest thing to a rock-star screenwriter there is in the Thai film biz – the story is told in three acts. Each is handled by a different director – Saranyoo Jiralak, Sittisiri Mongkolsiri and Kittithat Tangsirikit – with the focus on one of the three young actors, Jirayu La-ongmanee, Suthata Udomsilp and Krit Sathapanapitakkij.

Industry veteran Rutaiwan Wongsirasawad (Oops, There's Dad) contributes her steady hand as producer, along with Pimpaka Towira and Kongdej. Further behind-the-scenes technical help came from indie film figures Aditya Assarat (Wonderful Town), Soros Sukhum (P-047) and Pawas Sawatchaiyamet (Headshot) who all served as line producers.

Talent 1 is backed by Major Cineplex Group and run by Laddawan Rattanadilokchai, former head of GMM Grammy's now-shuttered Bliss Publishing.

There's an English-subtitled trailer embedded below.
