First Trailer for Supernatural Horror Film 'The Medium' from Thailand
"A story about shamanism in Thailand…" An early promo trailer has debuted for a new supernatural horror film from Thailand titled The Medium, the latest from acclaimed Thai filmmaker Banjong Pisanthanakun (Shutter, Alone, Pee Mak, One Day). The film is being sold at the Cannes Market this year and is looking to get some extra buzz with this early trailer drop. The Medium is a rural horror thriller telling the story of a shaman's inheritance in the poor Isan region of Thailand. "The spirit that appears to be possessing a family member might not be the benevolent Goddess they believe it to be." Ohh that sounds very freaky. No cast is announced yet, but the film is being produced by fellow Korean filmmaker Na Hong-jin (of The Chaser, The Yellow Sea, The Wailing). Horror fans definitely need to keep an eye out for this. It looks utterly terrifying.
