Movie Info

A shock accident on a lonely country road has terrifying repercussions for a Bangkok photographer and his frightened wife in the Thai horror sensation that chilled audiences at the Gérardmer and Bangkok International film festivals. Distracted during a late-night drive down a long stretch of country road, Tun accidentally runs down a pedestrian who seemed to have materialized out of thin air. Though Tun and his wife, Jane, attempt to relinquish themselves of responsibility by fleeing the scene and hastily returning to Bangkok, it seems as if someone or something is intent on ensuring that they don't forget their moonlit transgression. When Tun begins to see spectral figures in the images he snaps and Jane finds her dreams taking an unusually dark turn, the pair immediately decides to return to the scene of the accident to find out what became of their hit-and-run victim. Strangely, upon investigating the accident it begins to appear as if there has been no report of the accident and no victim to speak of. Upon returning to Bangkok, Tun's friends begin dying at an alarming rate, leaving the pair desperate to unravel the murderous mystery before it consumes them body and soul.

    Yet another solid asian horror movie that would later be remade into American poo poo. See this version and only this version!

    Good, very scary horror film. Probably one of the scariest ones I've ever seen actually. Definitely not for the faint of heart, but worth checking out.

    Wow this score really low on Flixster? Is it cause it's not a cliche Western theme? What gives people!

    Quite possibly one of the best Asian horror movies I have ever seen. It's haunting, beautifully directed, well executed twists in the story, & a solid plot. Not to mention tragic when you watch it. Do NOT watch the remake, stick with this one. The remake is awful in everything meaning of the word.
