So very, very predictable...
30 December 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Right, well an Americanized foray into the rich Thai culture and supernatural. Would probably be a good idea, right? Well, sure on paper, yes. Or if it was done in a satisfactory manner, yes.

"Ghost House" from 2017, turned out to be an adequate story in terms of storyline and plot. It was capable of mixing the Thai superstition of ghost mythology with Western cinema.

They had a fair good ensemble of casted actors and actresses to perform in the movie, despite it being a relatively small ensemble. Being a small cast list, means that there is a bit more pressure to perform, and I will say that the cast actually did do that here.

The effects in the movie were good too. Although not really among the best and most believable of effects that I have seen in movies focusing on Thai ghost lore. But at least the were functional and served their purpose as intended. That did bring some enjoyment to the movie.

So why only a meager 4 out of 10 stars rating from me, you might wonder? Well, because the movie was so horribly predictable that even someone not watching the movie knew what was coming a mile away.

There are far better movies available if you like movies about ghosts, both in the American and Thai movie cinema.
