Name That Horror Frame Contest – Week of 10/7/12 – Special Thai Horror Edition

OK, trying a little something new here to see what happens. These aren’t just from a Thai horror movie. They aren’t just from a Thai supernatural  horror movie. They are all actually from the same  Thai supernatural horror movie!

I don’t even know if I should give you more hints than that.  This one is hard to find to rent; I had to watch it online (though if I can find a region 1/PAL version, I’ll probably just buy it). If you’ve seen it, though, you’ll know the answer, and I’m all for giving out a horror DVD to anyone who has also seen this excellent, frightening, fun Thai horror movie.

OK, you know you shouldn’t have hitched a ride in this truck to Bangkok (actually, that sounds like a terrible idea in the first place–I’d take my chances sitting on the roof of the vehicle) when the contents turn out to be anything like the below–

Second up, any sort of explanation for the below frame would take up way too much space. That’s blood, by the way. I’ve been sitting here trying to think of a horror movie from Thailand that had used CGI use so well and discreetly that it wasn’t slightly distracting, and I’m coming up with zero. And I’ve not only seen an extensive amount of Thai horror movies, I’ve seen every one I heard was good (or at least had one really good scare in it) and could get my hands on.

and finally, I’m sure this next one will look familiar if you’ve seen more than two horror movies from Thailand with ghosts in them. But if you recognize the above panels and FACE! YOUR! FEARS! (hint hint), you’ll know how it fits in:

That’s it for this week. If you don’t know what movies these are from and just REALLY want to see them, contact me and I’ll tell you. By the way, the  theatrical trailer for the movie all these frames are from hasn’t been posted yet, but I have it in my “Ten MORE Trailers to Keep You Awake” list, so you’ll know the movie in a month or so, regardless.

Any guesses?

Ten Trailers to Keep You Awake #4 – Shutter (2004)

…until I review [Shutter], I should probably just keep this short and…well, this movie  is anything but sweet.

I’ve found that this excellent, well-crafted trailer is equally creepy whether or not you’ve seen the movie. It showcases the most frightening aspects of the movie without revealing so much that you wonder if you should bother with the 90-minute version. The tags sound chilling in the first place, but if you’ve seen the Thai film Shutter (2004), at least one of them-

they just want to be…
around us

will make your skin crawl. Watching this trailer again before this posting made the hairs on my arms and neck stand up, and it’s still light out. Since I got moving today while the sun was out, I thought, this’ll be a good time to post one of the seven trailers left on this list that really could keep me awake, so to utilize the nice, light day, which one should I pick? Shutter!  I thought, with absolutely no hesitation.  I’ll also tell you that if you have time for a movie and want a scary one, pick the original Shutter up with absolutely no hesitation (unless you’re already badly frightened and need to calm down). It’s a good one to go into ‘clean’, which is just what I did, having no motherfucking clue what I was in for.

Speaking of which, it’s difficult for me to write about Shutter without a really, really high swear count. So, until I review it, I should probably just keep this short and …well, this movie is anything but sweet. Keep it short.

Besides, it’s starting to get dark out.
