Critic Reviews for Dearest Sister: Nong Hak
The film also relies on a degree of cultural specificity that sets it apart from other examples of regionally produced horror and identifies Do, who grew up in Southern California before relocating to Laos, as a notable emerging talent.
If the film seems to ride on the archetypal perception of female fury and suspicion, the two actresses, Vilouna and Amphaiphun, make it real and convincing -- something we didn't expect from what's at heart a horror film.
A superb slow-burn supernatural thriller that's as much a portrait of contemporary Lao class differences, as it is an effectively spooky domestic chiller.
Directed by Lao filmmaker Mattie Do, Dearest Sister achieves a difficult feat: It's an insightful look at the impact of colonialism and unbalanced gender roles in Laos, and it's also a gripping and accessible horror story.
