Critic Reviews for Dearest Sister: Nong Hak

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (1)

  • 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.

  • Nok's journey is a human one, and the climax of such a trek leaves you a feeling of satisfaction and intensity from not only from the story, but also of what Do will do next.

  • Dearest Sister is a sad, beautiful film, while simultaneously a masterful yet shattering ghost story.

    August 25, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    May 19, 2017 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    May 18, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.
