SYNOPSIS
Su and Chris are two strangers whose lives have been struck by tragedy Su has been diagnosed with lung cancer just days before her wedding and Chris longtime girlfriend has fallen into a mysterious coma. When they both learn of a bizarre Thai ritual in which a living person lies in a coffin to reverse bad Karma, they both decide to partake in a mass funeral for the living. Soon, their lives have turned around Su s cancer vanishes and Chris girlfriend awakes from her coma but the good fortune is short-lived. A series of terrifying paranormal events suggests that Su and Chris may have upset the Karmic balance of the universe by cleansing themselves of bad luck, and the people closest to them may ultimately pay the price.

International stars Karen Mok and Ananda Everingham star in this brooding tale about the fear of death and the cost of love. Based on a real-life ritual and shot on location in Bangkok, ancient Thai spiritual grounds, and an active crematorium, The Coffin is a nightmarish and ultimately moving supernatural thrill ride.

Format: DVD
I'm a big fan of Thai cinema, but I have to say that The Coffin kept me confused and unsure - all the way through the ending - of what was actually happening. I dozed off at one point and had a hard time figuring out what I had seen and what I had missed when I tried to backtrack. The basic plot is straightforward enough - the attempts of two characters to shed bad karma in their lives has unforeseen and dire consequences for those they care about the most. The way things play out is just confusing, though. I'm still not sure if the two characters who partook of the ritual (a mass funeral for the living involving them voluntarily spending a night inside a coffin) were related in any way - I don't think they were, but I had a hard time keeping a number of the secondary characters straight. One of the most important scenes at the end had me resorting to movie forums to try and figure out who one of the characters actually was.

This isn't a film that is going to appeal to very many horror fans. There are ghosts and supernatural occurrences, but I didn't find anything even remotely scary here (although some other reviewers disagree with me on the fright factor). The movie is also exceedingly stylish (not to mention blue, as most of the scenes are tinted for some reason), and that's not something most Western horror fans are used to at all. There are a lot of great Thai horror films out there, but The Coffin is just an overly stylized mess.

This is a film that is told more through visual style than through dialogue.

The visual part is filmed in different shades of blue, purple, and grey. At times, the haziness and murkiness of the film tend to blot out important pieces to the story because you just can't see it.

The plot takes it time. Although the movie itself is around a hour and twenty minutes, it seemed more like three hours. The two main characters never actually meet, but happen to partake in the same ceremony. Their stories unfold after that follow similar lines.

To be honest, although beautiful to look at, this film falls way to short under the heavy atmosphere. It could have been told better.

The Coffin is about two people that decide to complete the coffin ritual; the ritual is when you sleep in a coffin to get rid of bad karma and cheat death. One does it to save his girlfriend from a coma, and the other does it to cure her cancer. They receive positive results followed by terrifying hauntings. It's overall a descent film.

The Coffin is original and innovative, story-wise. The acting was fine and so was the haunting music. The actual coffin ritual scenes were very claustrophobic and reminded me of Buried but with supernatural aspects. It's got a couple of good scares, but most have been done before. In fact, I thought most of the scares were predictable. I also disliked the blue filter/tint used on the film. The version i saw was about 1hr 20min, and it kept my attention throughout most of the movie. Overall, it has some good aspects and some bad ones; nothing extraordinary and nothing absolutely terrible.

By the way, the film is mostly in English. Also, the film has some blood, some sex (not graphic and no nudity) and some frightening scenes, in case you're wondering. Not a bad film at all, way above my initial expectations. If you have Netflix streaming, it is available as of 6/18/12, so you can save some money.

This movie has an amazing story. The first 60 mins of the movie it is creepy and has great " jumping" parts, but then reads the end it unravels into a beautiful, tragic love story ( that had me crying the last 12 min of the movie.) All in all I thought it was a fantastic movie, that has an incredible story, and very well directed... And I absolutely love it.
