YesAsia Editorial Description

What if the ghost in a horror movie comes into the real world? That's the premise of Thailand's 2008 Halloween hit Coming Soon. Famous horror screenwriter Sophon Sakdaphisit (Shutter, Alone) also steps out of his domain to direct this film, which is produced by Yongyoot Thongkongtoon (4bia, The Iron Ladies). Populating the haunted cinema are Chantawit Thanasewee (Hormones) and Thai pop singer Punch, who makes her silver-screen debut here.

Cinema projectionist Shane (Chantawit Thanasewee) finds his colleague dead after watching a new movie called "Evil Spirit" together. What's more frightening is that the body ends up inside the movie, while the Evil Spirit has come off the screen and it targets Shane for vengeance! As the supernatural plots are fast turning into reality, Shane and his girlfriend Som (Punch) race against time to investigate the production of the movie, which hides some shocking and sinister secrets...

Professional Review of "Coming Soon (2008) (DVD) (Thailand Version)"

July 3, 2009

This professional review refers to Coming Soon (2008) (DVD) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
New Thai horror Coming Soon certainly has an impressive pedigree, with debut director Sophon Sakdaphisit having written two of the country's best recent genre hits in the form of Shutter and Alone and with producer Yongyoot Thongkongtoon having worked on the recent 4bia as well as the popular comedy The Iron Ladies. The film was a domestic box office hit upon its original Halloween 2008 release, boosted no doubt by its young cast, including Chantawit Thanasewee (also in Hormones) and pop singer Punch, here making her first screen appearance. Thankfully, their presence doesn't mean that the film is a lightweight teen friendly affair, with Sakdaphisit doing his best to notch up plenty of honest popcorn dropping moments.

The film is set in a cinema, where cash strapped, ex-junkie projectionist Shane (Thanasewee) reluctantly agrees with his friend Yod to try and make a pirate copy of the new horror "Revenge of Evil Spirit" which has just arrived for a preview screening. Unfortunately, strange things are soon afoot as Yod disappears, only for Shane to spot him on screen, his eyes having been gouged out by the film's wicked witch villainess, Chaba. Only too aware that he may be next and that the film might be somehow cursed, he and his reluctant girlfriend Som (Punch) try to solve mystery before the evil hag gets her filthy claws on him.

Despite the film's Category III rating, it is not a particularly gory or sadistic affair. There are a handful of gruesome scenes, enough so to provide a few jolts, though in general Sakdaphisit goes for intensity rather than overt nastiness. This approach works well, mainly since the film is generally quite imaginative, making good use of the whole movie vs. reality gag for a number of well crafted scares and some creatively surreal sequences which help to disorientate the viewer along with the characters. Although this concept is obviously nothing new, and the film is basically a celluloid inspired Ringu variant, Sakdaphisit does manage to wrangle a few fresh twists amongst the usual clich?, and there are a couple of genuine surprises, even for hardened genre addicts. Chaba makes for a fine evil goblin, even more so during the "Revenge of Evil Spirit" scenes, with the film-within-a-film itself seeming like a pretty solid genre production in its own right. The film does deserve some extra points for being one of the first genre productions to feature film pirates as its victims, who it clearly views as a bunch of miscreants undeserving of much mercy.

Sakdaphisit certainly knows his stuff, and his direction is solid and obviously genre savvy. Wisely, after a few daft false frights during the early stages he sticks to genuine scares, and although many of these are clearly lifted from the films from his own writing repertoire, they work well enough to keep the viewer on the edge of the seat. Cinemas are inherently creepy places when empty, and the film is atmospheric throughout, especially during its quieter moments. Sakdaphisit keeps things rattling along at a good pace, and the film benefits from clocking in at less than an hour and a half, leaving little room for pointless subplots or melodrama. As a result, despite the relative familiarity of the plot and some of the scenes, the film is surprisingly tense, having a nicely downbeat feel, not least since it seems to foretell the death of its male protagonist from early on. Sakdaphisit keeps his nerve, and although things don't work out exactly as expected, the finale is both amusing and satisfyingly grim.

This helps to make Coming Soon one of the better Asian horrors in what has been a fairly lean few years. Although not offering anything particularly new or innovative, it serves up enough thrills and spills to keep genre fans happy, and whilst it is not quite up to the standard of Shutter or Alone Sakdaphisit certainly proves himself to be as talented a director as he is a writer.

Wild Thai fright-fest Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
In "Coming Home", a movie crew has completed a movie based upon a horrible true story of a crazed woman who kidnapped and blinded a group of children in order to make them her own. As its climax, the film shows the enraged parents of these parents capturing the woman, beating her, then hanging her. The crew that shot this film gather in a theatre to watch their movie. Afterwards, the theatre's two projectionists seek to create a bootleg copy of the film to sell to a gang of thugs. One of the projectionists mysteriously disappears while shooting the bootleg. Shane, the other projectionist seeks to determine what has become of his co-worker. What Shane encounters is a wild series of inversions of reality, with the movie seeming to intrude into Shane's real life and Shane's real world seeming to intrude into the movie.

"Coming Soon" is so tightly-written, filled with so many frights, and told with such energy that the viewer is willing to suspend disbelief and go along with this wild ride. And the wild just keeps getting weirder as the movie progresses. Indeed, the film's final twenty minutes are so bizarrely inexplicable that it seems first-time director Sophon Sakdaphisit has constructed a very entertaining spoof of the horror genre. I don't think the conclusion of "Coming Soon" makes much sense at all, but I found this movie to be very enjoyable and recommend it highly to horror fans. And I hope to see pop singer and first-time actress Punch soon in more movies; she's a natural!

...horror in the popcorn! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Anyone whose seen Tai horror “Shutter” will have high interest in “Coming Soon”, considering Sophon Sakadaphisit wrote the screenplays for both and debut directs here. Anticipation is well rewarded, as “Coming Soon” is one tightly scripted and freaky high quality made Tia horror. Cinematography is excellent and the story of a ghosted hanged woman terrorizing a projectionist of a multiplex cinema is decently chilling. Certainly cuts to the chase, straight into the grim horror of a bleak house, with horror tormented children and the grim woman of this story - you don’t wait for the scares. Effects are impressive like the scene where security girl Som (played by Tai singer Punch) first encounters the haggard ghost in a cinema corridor. The story centers around Shane, a cinema projectionist and boyfriend to Som (who ditches Shane after he pawns her watch for drugs money), who after finding the abandoned video camera of his supervisor, (who was illegally copying a private theater showing of horror movie “Revenge of Evil Spirit”), sees on the camera his supervisor recoil in terror at ‘something’ horrid coming out of the cinema screen. Soon Shane begins to be terrorized by a grisly-blooded hanged woman who appears to him in lifts, corridors and everywhere within the multiplex cinema, and seems to be the woman from the “Evil Spirit” film. Later Shane discovers, in a surreal film-in-film reality shift, his supervisor’s corpse within the bleak house of the “Evil Spirit” film (and Shane doesn’t need 3D glasses!), as if the movie had ‘changed’ and become a celluloid graveyard of the grisly ghost’s victims. As Shane’s ex-gf sees the ghost, too, both Shane and Som frantically try to find out what’s behind the cursed woman in (and out of) the movie.

Certainly a surreal Tai horror with a gruesome ‘monster’ leaving the cinema screen and haunting ‘victims’ who appear dead within the cursed film itself, and although visited on before, its a good modern twist. For a Tai film too, the actors are a modern young set for a modern Taiwan, and the production’s a well crafted horror story on par with Korean and even Hollywood horrors. Punch performs very well as Som considering it’s her first time acting. There’s some ‘Ring’ motifs like the videotape copying theme and a little of John Carpenter’s “Halloween 3 - Season of the Witch”. But one things for sure, its an unrelenting fright fest of a movie. Even the trailer is impressive! All extras also have English subtitles.
