I am always not a big fan of horror movies, however I would loved to give myself a scare or two at times. Hee.... When I saw this movie trailer, I decided this will be the movie.
"4BIA is a portmanteau horror flick consisting of 4 horror stories directed by 4 of Thailand’s most talented directors. The first, directed by Yongyoot Thongkongtoon is titled “Happiness” but don’t let the title of the movie mislead you. “Tit For Tat” directed by Paween Purijitpanya (Body) gives a mystically dark and gruesome twist to the meaning of “an Eye for an Eye”. Then there is “In The Middle” directed by Banjong Pisanthanakun (Shutter and Alone) and his teenage tale that totally walks off the Buddhist beaten path and on to a horrifyingly humorous escapade that may leave you laughing more than ‘shuttering’, excuse the pun. Finally “Last Fright” directed by Parkpoom Wongpoom (Shutter, Alone) is a psychological thriller that reminds all of us of the old adage "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” except if you are the ‘other’ woman on the receiving end."
Since this movie is made from 4 short stories, there was no link at all, but the scariest one is definitely the first one and the last one. Totally spooked me out of it. The first one, even without much dialogue, it totally creates the scary atmosphere. The last scene was totally surprised. Hee.... For the last story, it is all about retribution. The mummy totally scary, even though it is all tied up. Hee..
Overall, I give this movie 3.5 stars out of 5.
Great for a good scare!
