New Asian Horror Film ‘The Coffin’ Looks Promising

We caught wind today from Cannes of a new Asian horror film that looks pretty damn cool. Entitled THE COFFIN, the film was written and directed by Ekachai Uekrongtham and stars Karen Mok (So Close), Ananda Everingham (Shutter), Andrew Lin (The Heavenly Kings) and Napakapa Nakpasit (Art of Devil 2).. Inspired by a true Thai ritual of lying in coffins to cheat death and get rid of bad luck, The Coffin is a spine-chilling supernatural thriller about a man and a woman who are confronted by a series of paranormal and terrifying incidents after going through the bizarre ritual. Thrilling, mysterious and ultimately moving, this new film from the award-winning director of Beautiful Boxer is also about the beauty of life and death, living and dying.
