Storyline

Three young, beautiful girls arrive in Thailand to teach English for the summer, some with noble intentions and some just wanting an adventure, but none were prepared for the massacre that awaited them. The nightmare begins when their new friends go missing, vivid bloody dreams haunt their sleep and a stolen statue leads them down a dark path into Thai folklore and magic that has been long forgotten. Their situation continues to become worse once they realize it's not WHAT that is haunting them but WHO: an eight-year girl, brutally murdered and sacrificed by her family decades ago who wants nothing more than to watch them bleed. This is not a story about redemption. This is not a story about good versus evil. This is not a story about the will to survive. This is a story about Vanida - a child viciously tortured by her own family, who will stop at nothing for revenge - one appendage at a time. Written by Rachvin Narula

Well-done!!!
9 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really, really, really, really loved this movie!!! It feels like it's just been ages since I've seen a good horror flick out on the market and the director of this MASTERPIECE just blew it out of the park!!!! Yes…I said Masterpiece! From the bright locations and the lovely, well-casted actresses, to the incredibly believable plot, everything was just... PERFECT! I really have a thing for Asian styled stories and having the main evil driving forces in this fig to be children just added to the creepiness, you know? I found myself shivering, but at the same time, I could feel my jaw drop during the more gory scenes. I just couldn't look away! And then ending on the little note that it did, not to give any spoilers, but… It was just awesome! It feels just like a sick twisted plot but I like it! And better! It was really filmed in Thailand, too, so it's like you get your own little mini trip to the pretty country when you watch it!
