Ting, an actress for murder illustration is hired to simulate a real-life murder case of Min, a former Miss Thailand who was brutally killed. Afterwards, Ting can feel a strange supernatural connection to Min. Soon, she decides to try and solve the mystery of Min's murder... Written by
In Thailand, the aspirant actress Ting (Pitchanart Sakakorn) is invited by Lieutenant Te (Kiradej Ketakinta) to work for the police simulating murders to help the investigations. Her talent becomes recognized and she is invited to participate many cases and also in a soap-opera. Ting feels a great attraction for the brutal murder of the former Miss Thailand Meen (Apasiri Nitibhon), whose body had not been found, only parts of her tissue, and is invited to perform the case where the former husband of Meen, Dr. Jarun (Pitchanart Sakakorn), is the prime-suspect. Ting feels connected to the spirit of Meen, who helps her to solve the mystery and find the real killer, the lesbian plastic surgeon Fai (Penpak Sirikul) that was obsessed for Meen. However, in the world of cinema, fantasy and reality are entwined in another ghost story.
"Phil Khon Pen" is an original scary ghost story, with an unexpected plot point with another ghost story; unfortunately the messy screenplay is very confused and in the end I did not clearly understand who the killer in the real world was and the motives of the fiend. The creepy atmosphere in the first half is great; however, the plot in the second part with May, Shane, Joke and Kak is very difficult to be followed and understood. Maybe watching this movie a second time the story becomes clearer. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "A Vítima" ("The Victim")
