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 ...

 

Pernicious 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.

Totally worth a watch!!!
