Storyline

In Thailand, there are people that believe that if they lay down in a coffin they will cheat death and bring good luck. The bride Sue Wong leaves her fiancé Jack in Hong Kong expecting to heal her lung cancer and she is successful; however Jack dies. The skeptic Chris also participates in the ceremony to help his beloved Mariko. However he panics in the claustrophobic situation and dies for 6 minutes and 42 seconds. They have weird visions of ghosts and strange things happen with them. Sue and Chris visit Professor Thanachai that advised them that they should repeat the burial to resolve their issues and stop the curse. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Artsy Film, May Be Lost on Some Audiences
21 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

Following the Thai custom to cheat death and rid oneself of bad luck, a man who lays in a coffin for an evening subsequently experiences a series of terrifying incidents.

A Thai film, filmed in Singapore... I do not know much about Thai films or films from Singapore, but I can say that this is surprisingly stylish. I mean, am I wrong, or is Thailand a country where you can live comfortably on a dollar a day?

So far, the film has received generally negative reviews, with people pointing out the obvious blue tint. Yes, the tint is overdone. It seems to be a growing trend in recent years, and I have not found out why. But beyond that, it is not a bad film... maybe nothing special, but not bad.

I would not personally recommend this one to people, but perhaps if someone was really into Thai or Asian films... this definitely has a vibe that Chinese and Japanese films have. Not sure why they have the obsession with ghosts that they do, but here is another example of that motif.
