Admit it. Nobody does horror movies like what the Asians can. Although Hollywood has churned out successful horror thrillers like Poltergeist and Sixth Sense, the really scary ones are few and far in between. Even Hollywood remakes of the Ring and Ju-On are at most, laughable.

Banjong Pisanthanakun and Parkpoom Wongpooms' last film Shutter was a box-office smash everywhere, and still stands as one of my favourite horror pieces. Alone is about conjoined twins Pim and Ploy, and one dies at the end of a separate operation. However, the memories and presence of the dead sister still continues to haunt the living one.

Acted by Thai-German pop singer Marsha Wattanapanich (who just came to Singapore) in her first film role in 15 years, she is a drop dead gorgeous and had an Angelica Lee vibe.

Alone survives by its typical stare tactics: loud, shocking noises, sound effects and distorted faces while the lead is in the midst of sleeping, walking in the dark, showering, or just alone in the big mansion. If you are a horror fanatic, then this is probably nothing new to you, except the walking scene at the beach.

I won’t say anymore because this movie is meant to surprise. If you want to run the ‘fun’ of watching this movie, go read some spoilers. Though not as well plotted as Shutter, it is actually a horror movie with a storyline!

Alone - Scary, but still can watch alone lah!
