Pure modern horror story: The ghosts of Capitalism!
And by pure horror a mean Thai horror - the master and king and ruler of them all horrors! This movie and/or story is for all you horror and suspense fans. It's also for all you drama fans and family love fans. And, last but not least: No electric special effects, no animations, only some masks.
The story is pretty simple. A mid-young (over thirty) husband and father of two moves the family from Bangkok to another city in a nice suburban area called Laddaland. The area is, of course, guarded and fenced - a typical artificial "safe" place.
He is the only employed member of their family with somehow steady job that allowed him this move in a first place (mortgage,wife not employed anymore).
One day, brutally mutilated body of a young girl is found in one of the houses in the neighborhood, and soon after that, strange things begin to happen and the story slowly begin to unravel. But, the more we go in to the scary minutes and hours of the movie, the more is the story overflown with personal grief, money problems, job loses, anger, personal depression, lack of acknowledgment and LOVE. We start to see that it's all just one horror story, here and now, and they are the only ones that can say NO to it.
And the less they resist the more they are drawn in to the world of depression, sadness and hate.
All the ghost that are scaring are just the modern alternative to Zombies:"The ghosts of Capitalism!" As I said, this is a movie that uses RAW power to remind us about the current situation in the world is already exactly like in this movie, except without ghosts. If you don't call beggars and homeless Ghosts....
I highly, highly recommend it!
It's more Drama then Horror ;)
