The Victim- Comes to DVD!

Hello Folks!
Just a head's up on yet another great looking Thai movie coming to DVD in the UK on 6th August called The Victim, from the same director as the awesome The House, Thailand is certainly kicking out some great stuff these days and from i have read about this so far it seems to be up amongst the best, watch this space for a review and i have stuck the details below,
Jonny T. 

“A solid, superior movie… ingenious… excellent Thai ghost story… sucker-punches the viewer with a twist that would turn M. Night Shyamalan green with envy.” –

The stunning horror-thriller hybrid that firmly established Thai filmmaker Monthon Arayangkoon (The House) as a director to watch finally comes to DVD in the UK.

Directed by Monthon Arayangkoon (The House) and starring Pitchanart Sakakorn (Buppah Rahtree Phase 2: Rahtree Returns), Apasiri Nitibhon (The Bullet Wives; Sunset At Chaopraya) and Kiradej Ketakinta (Bangkok Loco).

When aspiring young actress, Ting, is approached by the Bangkok police department’s Lieutenant Teerasak Kedkaew and invited to play a variety of mugging, murder and rape victims in a series of “Crimewatch”-style re-enactments, she jumps at the chance. Her immediate success soon leads to further work with Lt. Te’s colleagues at other police stations around the city and, ultimately, to a role in a TV soap opera. But the role Ting really wants is that of Meen, a former Miss Thailand contestant-turned-actress and the victim in a high-profile murder case in which Meen’s husband, Jarun, stands accused. Shortly before the filming of the police re-enactments relating to the case begins, the female officer scheduled to play Meen dies unexpectedly from a severe heart attack, despite being young and apparently healthy. Reluctantly, Lt. Te offers the part to Ting, who immediately begins studying TV footage of the dead model-actress in order to get into character. As she gets deeper into the role, Ting experiences what she can only describe as a supernatural connection to Meen, and one that leads her to believe Jarun is not the murderer. Determined to solve the mystery, Meen begins her own investigation into the crime only to discover the worlds of reality, fantasy, the supernatural and the media colliding in the most unexpected and terrifying ways imaginable.

“An entertaining and suspenseful merger of ghost story and crime thriller.” – Variety.

“This sucker is flat-out scary… many of the images are utterly nightmarish.” – HK and Cult Film News.

“Superior Thai horror… many startling shock moments and effective creep-outs… a far scarier and inventive Thai horror film than most.” – Black Hole Reviews.

“Impressive.” –

“One headfuck of a movie… great visuals.” – Dread

“Intense Thai horror… incredibly well crafted… The Victim has definitely set a high standard for Thai horror movies.” –

“Spine-tingling moments using striking visuals, creepy set pieces and a haunting score, each of which heighten the scares when the spirits spring out to startle the audience.” –
