Long-Awaited Thai Horror Flick The Covenant Gets a Fresh Nightmarish Official Trailer

When an individual thinks of horror from the far East, you would be forgiven for instantly considering of Japanese horror or after all the explosion of prime notch Korean films. Any horror nut value their salt will instantly listing the notorious The Ring franchise or the oft-lauded Three Extremes trilogy of disturbing tales from by Hong Kong director Fruit Chan, South Korean director Park Chan-wook, and Japanese director Takashi Miike; every of whom directed an installment in mentioned trilogy.

A trailer from 2015 Thai horror movie The Covenant (to not be confused with the 2006 Hollywood film of the identical identify – nevertheless if Sebastian Stan is your factor, I suppose you possibly can have a look) has lately emerged, boasting some sincerely spooky scenes, together with the sort of nightmarish ghouls that might even give Guillermo del Toro pause for thought.

The film, which was shot beneath the unique title of Run Phee, follows the story of a younger lady possessed (there is a low hanging spook-fruit) of the flexibility to scent ghosts. Positively a novel method to spectre-detection, although I for one hope {that a} Western launch doesn’t embrace the tagline “I scent useless individuals.”

Simply lacks the ring (once more, no pun supposed) of different, extra memorable taglines. Our heroine on this case discovers that her boarding college is harboring some darkish secrets and techniques. After all, mentioned secrets and techniques completely must be of the pants-soiling, horrifying selection; I imply, let’s face it – who would wish to watch a movie a few common, fully sane covenant?

Our olfactory bothered character won’t be alone in her investigation into the darkish previous of the boarding college. She is joined by a quite nattily attired dead-sidekick to help her in attending to the underside of the horrors inhabiting the Covenant. Good ghosts, apparently, all the time put on fits/college uniforms.

Whereas the hook of smelling the useless is actually novel, the trailer undoubtedly evokes emotions of nostalgia for these early 2000’s horror movies. I for one was most undoubtedly put in thoughts of 13 Ghosts and even shades of the 1999 remake of The Home on Haunted Hill.

You need to look no additional than a number of the horrors on present within the trailer for The Covenant: A melting face with a deliciously visceral gooey eyeball. A creature with a face made ENTIRELY of eyeballs .A spirit (little question malevolent) so chewed up and mashed, you could see proper via the again of it is head. A suicide by gunshot, maybe?

There’s not but an official launch date (both for the US or Europe) for horror followers to pin to their calendars, nevertheless that is actually one to maintain an eye fixed (melting, full-faced or in any other case) on. Thailand has been quietly placing collectively a strong steady of horror movies, within the shadow of the extra acknowledged Japanese and Korean studios. Extra Far-Jap horror isn’t a foul factor in any respect.
