Thanit Jitnukul and Black Night

Black Night is the latest pan-Asian horror compilation, following in the creepy footsteps of Three ... Extremes and its forerunner, Three, which was initiated Nonzee Nimibutr.

Now it's Thanit Jitnukul's turn. He's directing a story called The Lost Memory, joining Hong Kong's Patrick Leung (Next Door) and Japan's Takahiko Akiyama (Dark Hole).

It's a co-production by Five Star, Movie-Eye and Filmko.
Twitch has more on the films, so I don't have to tell you about them.

I will offer this, though; what Thanit has to say:

I've always asked myself a simple question: What 'is it that my movie is going to say to the audience?' It sounds simple, but I've never found it easy to give myself a satisfactory answer. In The Lost Memory, my intention is to investigate the dark side of a person's mind. I don't believe there's such a thing as an impeccably good person or an irredeemably bad one. We have our virtues and vices, our gods and demons. What's interesting is that when you have to make a crucial decision, are you prepared to deal with the consequences of that one dedsion for the rest of your life? That's the genesis of The Lost Memory. And the only force that would prompt a person to make such crudal decision is that of love. Love is a positive feeling, but when love overwhelms you to the point of suffocation, then it shows its negative side. That's what the characters in the movie have to face when they can't control the force of love."
