“GHOST COINS” THAI MOVIE REVIEW (2015) เกมส์ปลุกผี (鬼铜)
BE WARNED that this is a NASTY MOVIE, with its SENSELESS SPREAD of BUTCHERY AND GORE.
If blood is a subject matter that will keep you on edge, then don’t ever miss out on this film.
Basically the plot deals with karmic forces with demonic revenge returning a thousandfold, after teenage pranksters trap their bosom buddy in a graveyard, not after stealing a gold coin from the mouth of a corpse.
This group of teenagers are consumed by greed and pay no heed to deathly warnings.
A Thai belief instructs relatives to put coins in the mouths of the dead for the afterlife process.
But these stubborn teenagers even rob corpses’s money which are stuck in their lifeless mouths. The corpses are decaying and swarmed by maggots. Disgusting.
You bet revenge arrives swift and sweet, clamoring after the irresponsible culprits who are unaware they are toying with fire.
Ton and Jack are two students who have a terrible devil-may-care reputation for producing “just for fun” mindless video clips in which they challenge superstitious beliefs.
As their viral clips gain more views, they get bolder and increase the intensity of their pranks.
They deviously scheme to kidnap the unsuspecting Tor, Ton’s younger brother for jest, and bring him into a cemetery to avenge a wrong he’s done to Bee, a woman whom Jack is also in love with.
Ton and Jack carry out their plan.
They take Tor into the cemetery and handcuffed him to a corpse.
When the two practical jokers find a dried-up skeleton, they notice a shiny gold coin in its mouth.
Ton gets greedy and steals the gold coin – suddenly, the corpse stirs.
Ton is frightened and as he starts running, he sprains his ankle and collapses to the ground.
Tor is shocked and about to run away too, but at that moment Ton handcuffs his brother’s hand with his own.
Together, they flee for dear life as the vengeful ghost chase closes upon them.
It is sheer pandemonium for here.
Ton and Tor are forced to escape in the dark, as Jack and everyone run in different directions.
But what all of them will witness later is a real nightmare they’ll never forget – but only if they can leave the cemetery alive.
