    Twist & sounds

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 24/07/2020

    » Now that we're able to go out and about again, watching a film about a house haunted by secrets and a mysterious ghost shouldn't be too bad, right? The Maid is the first Thai-produced Netflix horror film that was released a week ago, starring Teerapat Sajakul and Sawika "Pinky" Chaiyadech. Though the film seems like a straightforward horror story featuring a baby-faced and naive main character, a mysterious rich couple and a terrifying ghost out for blood, it quickly gives you a bunch of twists to keep you on the edge of your seat, as well as a couple of jump scares, all achieved with the help of terrifying visuals and bone-chilling sound design. Guru spoke to Lee Thongkham, the film's director and writer, and Traithep Wongpaiboon, who was the sound post-production supervisor, about the film and what role sound plays in getting audiences scared.

    Back to the source

    » Evil is not banal in Ju-on: Origins, a particularly grisly six-part Netflix series. The J-horror wave that broke at the turn of the millennium may no longer be in vogue, but this supposed origin story of the 2001 Ju-On: The Grudge is probably even more extreme in its depiction of ghostly malice and vengeance. It's scarier too -- if you have a stomach for murder, disembowelment, matricide and self-combustibility -- because here the origin of violence is mostly domestic: the violence committed by father against mother, mother against daughter, husband against wife, friend against friend. It's a series (or you could see it as a three-hour film) about monsters that shows us that monstrosity really is born and raised first and foremost by humans.

    Do your due diligence

    Life, Tatat Bunnag, Published on 17/07/2020

    » While Thais love supernatural stories, oddly it seems that in the past few years, many Thai directors are running out of original ideas for a spooky plot, relying instead on too many jump scares, while repeating the same worn-out storylines.

    The cycle goes on

    » What's the true meaning of the human circle of life, or what is usually expected of gender-based roles in a family? While we're trying to figure it out as we are living it, there are also others, who are watching us from a distance and wanting to learn about us as well.

    Don't rain on my parade

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 03/07/2020

    » It's a sad twist of fate that as quarantine restrictions have lifted, the rainy season is upon us. There may be many who want to get out and about, perhaps even the introverts like me may want just a tiny bit of socialising. But don't let the rain dampen your mood. If you and your friends want to hang out and have some fun, Guru's got a few fun spots even if it's raining cats and dogs.

    An R-rated roller-coaster ride

    Life, Tatat Bunnag, Published on 19/06/2020

    » A dozen strangers suddenly wake up to find themselves in a remote field. They have no idea where they are or how they got there, but the next thing they know they're being hunted down for sport. Judging by its premise or the trailer, the new action/horror film The Hunt could give you an impression of another The Hunger Games or Maze Runner, a survival story mixed with strong political messages. But the film surprisingly delivered a satire, dark humour combined with really well filmed action sequences, plus some of the most likeable performances you'll see in a movie this year.
