Movie: Haunted Room: Who Are You (2010)

Haunted Room: Who Are You (2010) is the latest psychological horror movie from Thailand based on an interesting medical condition known as Hikkikomori (Acute Social Withdrawal Syndrome), diagnosed among Japanese teenagers in the modern days.

Here's the synopsis: Nida, a DVD seller has a son named Ton who has locked himself in his bedroom for the past five years. He refuses to meet anyone and threatens to commit suicide if she forces him to come out. Helpless, Nida can merely communicate with her "invisible" son via notes slipped under the closed door.

This weird anti-social behavior draws a lot of interest and unwanted attention from neighbors, including a young girl with severe allergy and depression who lives across the road.

This is not the usual horror movie that gives you scares with horribly disfigured ghosts. It's also not a torture porn with blood and gore flying everywhere. This movie stands out from most Thai horrors because it highlights shocks and subtle fear. Psychological scare is very prominent and the way the story goes gives you more and more creeps towards the end. Add that with somber music, long unsettling, dramatic scares and you won't be disappointed.

However, I don't like the frequent twists and turns in the movie that finally ends with an anti-climatic and confusing ending. It could have been better if the ending is explained in a clearer way to avoid audience from feeling, "Huh? That's it?"

Overall, if you're okay with movies that have multiple plots and a weird ending, you might give this movie a go. A DVD would be fine though.

  2. Hi Anonymous, if you're in Malaysia and not against piracy, you can get them from independent DVD (pirated) sellers. There's a good shop at Tropicana City Mall - nearby Petsmore.

    Or, to be safe, visit authorized shops such as Speedy Video at major shopping malls, e.g. One Utama, MidValley.

    Hope these info helps.

    Cheers,
    Joyce
