Storyline

The American Jeff Mathews returns to Bangkok with his beloved wife Kyle Matthews and son Som Mathews to visit Kyle's parents. Jeff is a businessman that met Kyle in a business trip and married her. Jeff stops the car in a red light and a pickup crashes his car. Five weeks later, Jeff awakes from the coma and learns that Kyle and Som died in the accident. The nurse Choi Luang treats Jeff carefully but instead of recovering, he has dreadful visions and nightmares with ghosts and demons.. Choi takes Jeff to the aunt of her cousin Mae Noi and she explains that he is experiencing the World of Shadows, where people suffer their last moments over and over in the darkness. Soon Jeff learns that his connection with the World of Shadows is very strong and Maw Noi tells that they need help. They go to the house of Warren Mills and Jeff learns that his soul is trapped in the World of Shadows, and he need to go there to bring his soul back and be one again.

More an adventure tale than horror!
16 February 2013 | by chrichtonsworldSee all my reviews

The title is a little misleading since it would give the impression we have to do with a horror movie.And that is not the case. The original title Shadows makes much more sense.Shadows is more a science fiction with supernatural elements.Knowing this beforehand will save you some disappointment.Since overall Shadows is not scary.It does deal with ghosts and does have some creepy elements.But these are far from frightening.The acting by Cary Elwes and William Hurt is sufficient but it is obvious that Hurt is not giving his best.It's nice to see a USA/Thailand co production like this.I hope we will see more of this if only they would think of better plots that make much more use of the locale and the mysticism.This films is hard to recommend.It's a decent film.But that is all there is.There is nothing that really stands out that would make it worth your time.One to watch on a rainy Sunday.
