    Anthology horror gets the Thai treatment in this nifty, four story feature from some of Thailand’s top filmmakers.

  • A Tale Of Two Sisters

    Jun 9, 2015

    If you are willing to substitute blood for brains and real heart for cheap scares, this movie will be one you will remember long after you see it.

  • All-Round Appraiser Q: The Eyes Of Mona Lisa

    Apr 13, 2015

    ‘All-Round Appraiser Q’ is a winning crime film with a brilliant heroine and a very pleasant dynamic between her and the adoring acolyte Yuto.

  • Bastard Swordsman

    Feb 21, 2015

    This is a hugely entertaining film that undoubtedly ranks as one of the best that the swordplay genre has to offer.

  • Beast Cops

    Feb 21, 2015

    ‘Beast Cops’ is a powerfully shot and highly entertaining movie that raises some important issues regarding today’s society, which really need to be addressed.

  • Black Coal, Thin Ice

    May 10, 2015

    ‘Black Coal, Thin Ice’ is one of those films that are encountered once in a while that are much easier to admire than feel warm and fuzzy about.

  • Blind

    Feb 24, 2015

    ‘Blind’ is a more than capable thriller that builds patiently to an edge-of-the-seat climax. And Kim Ha-Neul continues to ascend to the top of Korea’s starlist with another charismatic performance.

  • Brotherhood Of The Wolf

    Feb 26, 2015

    ‘Brotherhood Of The Wolf’ doesn’t quite contain enough action to hold fight fans’ attention but also lacks the innovation to be anything more than a weak murder mystery.

  • Chungking Express

    Mar 1, 2015

    It is rare for such a film to hold one’s attention seemingly without trying, and as such it must not be missed by anyone who loves films of any genre.

  • Clan Of Amazons

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘Clan Of Amazons’ is an elegant swordplay film that shows how entertaining the genre can be when the various components are properly blended.

  • Cold War

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘Cold War’ is consistently entertaining and its massive success at the Hong Kong box-office shows that it clearly struck a chord with local audiences.

  • Confessions

    Mar 1, 2015

    ‘Confessions’ balances between cold hard reality and a subtly dream-like atmosphere that convinces the viewer that there isn’t a world outside of this horror.

  • Dark Water

    Mar 5, 2015

    Like the majority of Hideo Nakata’s work, ‘Dark Water’ proves to be more of a psychological entry into the genre rather than an all out gore-fest.

  • Detective Dee And The Mystery Of The Phantom Flame

    Mar 7, 2015

    Impressive production values, an excellent cast and a few moments of genuine inspiration (courtesy of Sammo Hung’s action choreography) make the minutes fly be.

  • Detective Story

    Mar 7, 2015

    ‘Detective Story’ is another entertaining blast of martial arts fun from The Stunt People featuring some of the best screen fighting around.

  • Duelist

    Mar 9, 2015

    This is a sharply original love story set to incredible moving pictures. It has beautiful actors, heartfelt emotion and a genuine sense of originality.

  • Edge Of Innocence

    Sep 20, 2017

    ‘End of Innocence’ won’t be counted among the great thrillers to come out of Asia in recent years, but it’s a more than competent effort and generates real tension before the credits roll.

  • Fire Of Conscience

    Mar 13, 2015

    While the narrative and tone get a little muddled and the pace dips here and there, ‘Fire of Conscience’ is still a good tough-as-nails cop thriller with some brutal action.

  • Game Of Death II

    Mar 16, 2015

    Possibly not for the Bruce Lee purists, but a fantastic old-school flick, which is, another must have.

  • Ghost In The Shell

    Apr 14, 2017

    Those who give it a chance will be rewarded with a well made, at times thought provoking and overall entertaining version of a Japanese classic.

  • GYO: Tokyo Fish Attack

    Mar 21, 2015

    Strange, gross, manic and bonkers are all good terms to help describe ‘GYO’ but the film is also curiously gripping.

  • Have Sword, Will Travel

    Mar 23, 2015

    Fine performances, good cinematography and a well-paced storyline – despite the difficulty on my part to pick out its failings – will offer most viewers a rewarding 100 minutes of entertainment.

  • Helpless

    Mar 23, 2015

    Though ‘Helpless’ features characters that are genre staples the acting has enough of an edge to divert attention away from clichés. A fine thriller, a solid drama and two hours of quality entertainment.

  • Infernal Affairs

    Mar 31, 2015

    The film has one of the best stories I’ve seen in quite a while and the cast and crew all produce some of their finest work to date.
