Laotian Horror CHANTHALY Delivers Chills With First Trailer

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Twitch has been following the development of Laotian ghost story Chanthaly with great interest over the previous months. And why not? Director Mattie Do has here delivered the first ever Laotian horror film and is herself the first ever female director to make a feature in that country. Throw in a compelling premise and you've definitely got our interest.

Raised alone by her overprotective father sequestered in their home in Vientiane, Chanthaly suspects that her dead mother's ghost is trying to deliver a message to her from the afterlife. After a change in her medication, intended to treat her hereditary heart condition, causes the hallucinations to cease, Chanthaly must decide whether or not to risk succumbing to her terminal illness in order to hear her mother's
last words.
The first trailer for Chanthaly arrived earlier today and it's a compelling, atmospheric bit of work. Check it out below.

    It looks nice though...never seen a film from Laos before.
    Í´m hoping the film brings out a new spin on the ghost theme, thanks for the trailer, Mr Brown.

    Actually, this is the fist piece of entertainment I've ever seen from Laos. I'm curious to see if there's a quality release here.
