4bia; my phobia for now.
{10:32 PM}

I don't know about you but horror movies spooks me out. Honestly. Everytime I see it, I would get shivers down my spine and visions of them scares me a lot. Today, 4bia did its job yet again. It's fucking scary.

4BIA is a portmanteau horror flick consisting of 4 horror stories directed by 4 of Thailand’s most talented directors.

The first, directed by Yongyoot Thongkongtoon is titled “Happiness” but don’t let the title of the movie mislead you.

“Tit For Tat” directed by Paween Purijitpanya (Body) gives a mystically dark and gruesome twist to the meaning of “an Eye for an Eye”.

Then there is “In The Middle” directed by Banjong Pisanthanakun (Shutter and Alone) and his teenage tale that totally walks off the Buddhist beaten path and on to a horrifyingly humorous escapade that may leave you laughing more than ‘shuttering’, excuse the pun.

Finally “Last Fright” directed by Parkpoom Wongpoom (Shutter, Alone) is a psychological thriller that reminds all of us of the old adage "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” except if you are the ‘other’ woman on the receiving end.

I won't spoil it for you guys but I dare say out of all the four, "Last Fright", scored the most points for me. Next would be "Happiness". The other two wasn't as scary as I would like to admit it. I guess the best thing was it started with a bang and accumulated the scare throughout before finishing it off. It was well done and indeed deserved all the box office hits thus far.

Throughout the whole movie, Joel was covering his eyes. What a wuss! HAHA. He missed out on all the best parts and still dare to ask me, "What happpened huh?". For goodness sake, you are watching the movie with me. I think he wasted alot of his money but I give props to the directors for putting everything together. Very well done indeed.

Now, if you don't believe me, go and catch this trailer.

If you have yet to catch this, I would suggest you do so. But make sure you don't go with another "Joel". LOL.
