Description

A beautiful young Thai woman living in Korea with her husband, Pim receives some supposedly happy news on her birthday. A friend reads her fortune and informs Pim that something she has lost will soon be returned to her. Good news, right? Well, some lost things are better off staying lost, really. You see, Pim moved to Korea partially to escape the guilt of being the surviving half of a pair of conjoined twins. Her sister Ploy died after separation, a separation that Pim insisted on, and the guilt of her sister’s resulting death has plagued her ever since. Before long, it’s not just the guilt doing the plaguing—the spirit of her dead sister soon arrives on the scene to wreak angry vengeance.

The sophomore effort from the directing duo behind SHUTTER, ALONE proves once again that Banjong Pisanthanakun and Parkpoom Wongpoom are among the very finest horror directors Asia has to offer. Masters at manipulating tension, the two are so good that they can playfully telegraph what’s coming in certain scenes and still make you jump when they deliver the goods. The premise is sterling, the directors smart enough to know when to play to expectations and when to twist and subvert them, and the technical end of the film so strong that it should come as no surprise that ALONE has been scooping up awards by the armful all around the world.
