Jonny T here with news that the awesome looking Asian flick "My Ex" is set for UK DVD release from MVM FILMS on the 8th of October! Looking like an Asian version of Fatal Attraction but as you probably know with Asian Cinema it may well be a little more extreme than that, and with it being given an "18" Certificate it certainly is looking that way! So watch this space for a review coming very soon.
"A tale of bitterness, lies and retribution, making Fatal Attraction look tame in comparison."
A chilling story of deceit, lust and vengeance unfolded within the Thai horror-thriller genre. My Ex is an exhilarating combination of the supernatural and unsettling revenge story against a back drop of a dark yet beautiful setting, making Fatal Attraction look tame in comparison.
Shahkrit Yamnarm (Bangkok Dangerous) and director Piyapan Choopetch, of ‘Necromancer’ fame.
PSYNOPSIS.As a young, popular actor, Ken’s life is broadcasted across gossip magazines and tabloids, with his love life in particular being heavily scrutinised.
Determined not to be tied down to one girl, Ken proves he is not the monogamous type, leaving a trail of heartache behind him. After unofficially leaving his two previous lovers, Meen and Bow, Ken starts dating his co-star Ploy, much to the fury of Meen and heartbreak of Bow. Having his love affairs leaked to gossip columnists, things start to turn sinister and disturbing for Ken and Ploy alike. Someone or something shadows their every move; invading their privacy, haunting their thoughts and plaguing their nightmares.
With the paparazzi also on Ken’s tail, the extent of his lies and deceit become unravelled through a series of scandalous photos, but also reveal something far darker at play.
Ken’s problems escalate further after retreating to his holiday house. This someone or something is clearly bloodthirsty for revenge, determined to destroy Ken’s life, ensnaring others along the way and leaving a trail of murderous destruction behind.
The phrase “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” is exemplified in this disturbing thriller, resonating the fuming resentment of Fatal Attraction’s Alex Forrest and Swimfan’s Madison Bell. My Ex is undoubtedly a revenge drama par excellence and is a truly gruesome and gripping tale of bitterness, lies and retribution.
