Convoluted and confusing ghost story
22 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Most Thai films I tend to watch these days seem to be sub-par ghost stories that play heavily on that country's superstitions and fear of the dead returning to life; THE VICTIM is no different. It's an unashamed copy of the kinds of films that Japanese was doing so well half a decade previously, featuring a young actress who finds herself haunted by a vengeful female ghost which keeps popping up at just the wrong time.

Unlike in the superlative SHUTTER, THE VICTIM is content to emulate rather than innovate and the resultant movie just isn't very interesting. There are twists and turns galore in the ultra-confusing storyline which involves an actress who becomes involved in reconstructing crime scenes, and much is made of the origins of the female ghost, but none of it is particularly compelling; you watch just to try and keep track of what's going on rather than being genuinely gripped by what you see.

The acting is 'meh' and the direction sub-par, the horror limited to a series of unsuccessful scare and jump sequences that quickly become repetitive; they involve the heroine catching a glimpse of a scarred supernatural figure and this set-up is repeated over and over again until the very end. There's no real menace, just predictability on show, and THE VICTIM proves itself yet another forgettable Thai horror outing.
