Five scary tales from Thailand, from the same talented team behind previous TADFF hits ALONE and PHOBIA!
“Incredibly creepy…the ride is definitely worthwhile…smart, funny, scary and captivating” - Bloody Disgusting
“Flat out fantastic…Very well done, very cool and very effective…If you get a chance to catch the flick at a festival I very much recommend it” - Ain’t It Cool News
“Entertains and thrills throughout, and provides yet more proof that the Thai horror genre is currently producing some of the strongest material from anywhere in the world.” - Beyond Hollywood
Official Selection - Fantasia Film Festival, Montreal
From the same group of filmmakers that scared fans out of their seats with Toronto After Dark audience hits ALONE (2007) and PHOBIA (2008) comes this highly anticipated sequel. PHOBIA 2 brings back three of the directors from PHOBIA, and adds two new ones, presenting five new terrifying and gruesome tales from Thailand. A delinquent youth seeks refuge in a rural monastery, only to anger the local Gods. A young man admitted to hospital finds himself in the room of a near-dead cult leader who has other plans for his soul. A teenage couple attempting to hitchhike to the city finds themselves on the run from drug-running zombies. A shady used car saleswoman finds herself alone at night and under attack. And three young filmmakers attempt to keep their cool when one of the cast members comes back from the dead to finish the movie. A sure classic from the current golden age of Thai horror.
