For some, Halloween brings on images of pumpkin spice lattes and unbridled access to candy; for others, it’s an opportunity to scare one’s socks off with tales of supernatural entities and knife-wielding nightmares. If you’re part of the latter group, Golden Village has curated a balanced mix of spine-chilling Asian fright flicks and hair-raising Western thrillers for its Horror Film Festival 2017, taking place between October 27 and 31 at GV Plaza and GV Yishun.
Featuring four exclusive titles curated to creep you to the core, as well as an advanced screening of the upcoming Thai horror tale The Promise, audiences on the opening night will be treated with a visit from Singaporean paranormal investigators, who’ll share their haunting expeditions with their electromagnetic force readers in tow. Let’s hope they don’t detect anything in the seat beside you.
Ib and Boum decide to commit suicide together in Bangkok in 1997. After reneging on the promise, the vengeful ghost of Ib returns 20 years later to haunt Boum and her 15 year old daughter, Bell.
