I’m looking forward to the Thai horror movie “Alone”, if only because Marsha Wattanapanich is the star, and I’ve been a fan of her for a while now. The whole concept behind the film — Thai woman returns home from Korea and may or may not be haunted by her dead twin sister — is old hat. I can imagine a lot of long dark hair girl moments. A lot of turn your head and the ghost is standing behind you moments. You know, the same stuff J-horror have been giving us for the last 10 years or so. Regardless, I still want to see this thing, and I might get my chance now that indie distributor 24 frames has grabbed the North American rights to the film.
New indie distributor 24 frames has acquired North American rights to Thai horror flick “Alone” (“Faet”) for its extreme label.
Pic is the second from co-directors Banjong Pisanthanakun and Parkpoom Wongpoom, whose debut feature “Shutter” was a left field hit in 2005 and has been picked up for remake by Vertigo Entertainment and 20th Century Fox.
As part of its deal with producer GMM Tai Hub, 24 frames has also acquired English-language remake rights to “Alone.” Story involves a woman who is haunted by spirit of her dead Siamese twin.
I’m not enthusiastic about that last part, about the remake. Seriously, do we REALLY need another remake of an Asian horror movie? Newsflash, Hollywood: THEY’RE ALL THE SAME.
But anyways, I’m looking forward to “Alone”. It’s not everyday you get to see Marsha on the big screen.
