Movie Info

When the father of a sizeable family has an affair with a woman (Arisa Will) who is - unbeknownst to him - a powerful practitioner of the occult, but later rejects her, his entire family is soon wiped out in a disgusting bloodbath that baffles everyone. Thus begins Art of the Devil 1 (aka Khon len khong), a Thai horror film from neophyte director Tanit Jitnukul (Kun pan, Andaman Girl). When an investigative reporter looks into the case and becomes convinced that the aforementioned mistress wields the hand of Satan, he unknowingly opens the door to a violent supernatural battle that literally rips his loved ones apart, as the witch sends eels bursting from human stomachs and rips babes from the womb.

Dull and failed to scare me even in the littlest way. Art of the Devil failed in making a good antagonist and even too thrill-less to even take it seriously. My eyes was half-open not on scares but because of boredom.

The dubbing was terrible. TERRIBLE. It didn't even fit with the words at all. So did the subtitles. The worst I've ever seen on a film. BUT, It did have a few good bloody moments\kills. I think they should do an american remake...It would be much better.

Cultural differences aside, I know every continent has its own voodoo black magic stuff, but.. I dont think non-Thai people would really like this movie AT ALL. Im in shock that this was actually submitted as an International Film, it shouldve just stayed local! Agh gawd how awful was this?! If I could give this movie 1/10th of a star I would..


For the bold video explorers out there, think again before trying this out.. what a waste of film, time and money! Its supposed to be a horror movie... ffs theres more "drama acting" in this than horror... Ive never cursed so much due to irritation just by watching a movie! Crappy acting, crappy script, crappy directing, crappy casting, O hell! Its almost crappy everything! Chaimongkol should just be in an X-rated film... Wills should just stay in local Thai TV soap drama.. The only talented actor in this film was the reporter! And what about that stupid kid ghost? WTF LIKE?!! They place a ("sunkissed child" - rough english translation) to portray a kid ghost?! Gawd.. And something thats even more irritating is their portrayal of the nouveau riche! Oh puhlease! Why did they even go on in producing this? WHAT AN ABSOLUTE PAP!! DO NOT WATCH!! >X(!!

Instead of watching a crap modern American horror movie, indulge in this evenly paced supernatural thriller. The dubs on the version I saw surely did not do the actors justice (they dub screams and sobs as well as dialogue). The gore scenes are evenly placed from each other, but linked together by compelling setup scenes. When the gore does kick in, we are introduced to some incredible visuals and also truly inventive ways to be killed. My only genuine criticism of this movie is that it is not good as other modern Asian horror, but that still makes it five heads above any recent Lions Gate releases.
Every horror fan MUST see the "snails" scene in this flick, it is too badass to skip. "So Fucked Up" highlight: the snails sequence
