Sars Wars hits festival circuit

The sci-fi horror comedy Sars Wars (Khun Krabi Peerabad) flopped when it was released domestically, but it's found a life at film festivals.

I remember seeing some positive reviews from the foreign press after it was screened at the Bangkok International Film Festival.

Since then, says the Bangkok Post, which had this news in a brief last week in their Real Time section, it has gone on to the Hong Kong Film Festival, where members of the audience got up on their feet and let out a loud cheer as they followed the story of a clumsy superhero battling a horde of zombies.

Starring Thep Po-Ngam and Supakorn Kitsuwon, the debut feature by Taweewat Wanta has also been invited to the Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival, the Puchan Fantastic Film Festival and (possibly) the New York Asian Film Festival, the Post said.
