Movie Review: Alone (2007)


Movie: Alone

Year of Release: 2007

Language: Thai

Starring: Marsha Wattanapanich and Vittaya Wasukraipaisan

Director: Banjong Pisanthanakun and Parkpoom Wongpoom

Conjoined twins Pim and Ploy (Marsha Wattanapanich), in their teens, fall in love with Wee at a hospital. Wee, in turn, loves Pim. After realizing this, Ploy starts being indifferent to Pim. Angered by this, Pim demands that both be separated. During the operation, Ploy dies. Many years later Ploy’s ghost comes back to haunt Pim. Is it for Wee (Vittaya Wasukraipaisan) or is there an ulterior motive behind Ploy’s resurgence?

It seems like a typical Asian horror film at first but then at the very end horror-of-horrors is the TWIST. A shocker that is revealed in a series of flashbacks. After watching the movie you realize that the clues were sitting right in front of you. If you didn’t see the clues then sorry, no spoilers from me.

Marsha Wattanapanich has given a commendable performance as Pim and Ploy. Wee has, as the name goes, a wee part in it and he carries it forward finely. This film comes from the makers of ‘Shutter’ (2004), another brilliant horror film and they’ve done a good job. Watch it for the eerie ghost, her silhouetted presence and the twist in the end.
