With Halloween in the air, moviegoers in Singapore rushed out to see the new Thai horror film ‘The Coffin’, making it the No. 1 film at the box office on its Opening Day last Thursday – out-grossing all other films including Saw V.
Inspired by a true controversial ritual of lying in coffins to get rid of bad luck and prolong lives, the English-language film has also broken the record for Best Opening Day for all other Thai horror films previously held by ‘Shutter’. Written and directed by Thai helmer Ekachai Uekrongtham (Beautiful Boxer), the Karen Mok (Shaolin Soccer) and Ananda Everingham (Shutter) starrer has earlier topped the Box Office chart in Thailand when it opened in August.
The Coffin tells of of an architect and a dietician who decides to go through the ritual to cheat death only to be faced with a series of strange and terrifying incidents afterwards.
