When was I supposed to be scared?
8 July 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Usually the horror / ghost movies that come from the Thai cinema tend to be rather interesting and have captivating stories. "The Victim" ("Phii Khon Pen") however, didn't really live up to many others in the same genre from Thailand.

The story is about a young actress who comes into a streak of fame and fortune when she is hired to portray victims in a TV reconstruction show of criminal cases. However, her portrayal of those killed and forced to leave Earth prematurely draws the attention of a malignant spirit that lingers.

Story-wise, then "The Victim" doesn't really impress much with the storyline. I am not fully sure whether it is because of the script or if it is the editing of the movie that made it seem like somewhat of a half-hearted attempt at a ghost story movie.

Effects-wise, then "The Victim" does deliver a good amount of effects and CGI. It is not really overly scary, but it does make good use of effects, both mundane and CGI alike.

As just mentioned above, then "The Victim" isn't really a movie that will scare you or leave you afraid of the dark. Sure, there were some nice enough shock moments to make you jump out of your seat, but in overall, then the movie isn't really scary.

Pitchanart Sakakorn, playing Ting / May, did a good job with her given role, and really carried the movie quite well. However, she was struggling with an uphill battle, as the rest of the movie didn't really give her much to work with.

For a Thai ghost horror movie, then "The Victim" was fairly weak and bland, and there are far better and far scarier ghost movies available from the Thai cinema market. And the DVD release comes as scraped as they get; there is the play movie feature and chapter selection - nothing else! No extras, no nothing. That was just weak.
