Three US-girls, Alex (Ciara Hanna), Julia (Emily O'Brien) and Rachel
(Jackie Moore), have come to Thailand for the summer to work as English
teachers ... and of course have the time of their lives. The first night
out, the girls have a few too many drinks, pull three English tourists
(Russell Geoffrey Banks, Byron Gibson, Sohanne Bengana), take them to
their remote house, and when they drink from one guy's hip flask, their
heads start spinning and ... all three of them wake up the next morning
with faint memories that must have been a nightmare, that they have
tortured their British friends to death. Unfortunately though, all their
jewelry is gone - and so is a gold statue of a young girl they found in
their house and could never make any sense of. And now they can't make
proper sense of what had just happened, so they do some research on the
statue ... but find that everybody in town is weirdly reluctant to talk
about statues like this - until a little girl (Irada Hoyos) looking like a
splitting image of the statue leads them to an old witch who tells them
the gold statue of the girl was actually a good luck charm and was made
from a real life girl who has died a violent death and was then covered in
blood. But to lose the statue is nothing good, and all the witch can do
now is to give the girls amulets that ... might not even do all that much.
Now of course, this doesn't exactly calm our heroines, and when the three
of them all have apparitions of the girl in gold, that doesn't help
either. But it's only when the find out about the history about this
particular gold-covered girl that things get really freaky ...
is a really nice piece of horror, as it's based on a great and
imaginatively told story, makes perfect use of its locale rather than just
using it as exotic backdrop, it's populated by a cast of interesting
characters portrayed by a very able cast, and the director thankfully
chooses atmosphere over spectacle ... but the director knows when to go for the
jugular as well, so the film is really gruesome in all the right spots.
worth a watch!!!
