An omnibus film of four stories pulled straight from Thailand's most gruesome headlines. In "Flame", a man is haunted by regret and a ghost after he survives a nightclub fire that killed his girlfriend. In "Imprison", a prisoner questions his sanity after his cell-mate hangs himself. In "Revenge", a deaf-mute drug dealer murders a woman thief in his apartment, and makes the mistake of stashing her corpse in his apartment building's water duct. Finally, in the comic "Haunting Motel", an aging stripper-cum-prostitute, a gay guy and his straight friend end up in a hotel owned by a crazy old lady and haunted by a ladykiller.

Die a Violent Death is a Thai horror film following four stories that were based off of four main headlines from the country. With four directors bringing something different to each segment, you’d think at least one of these would be good.
I was sorely mistaken. I don’t want to go on a rant, so I’ll keep it short.
This fil’s CGI and special effects were absolutely tragic. The acting was poor at best by most of the actors. You couldn’t feel any form of emotion from the directors – no form of love, or care, for their segments. The last segment portrays trans people as sexual predators. The ghosts weren’t even believable as ghosts.
2 stars only for the nightclub segment and the prison segment was half decent.
I will not be watching anything from these directors willingly; I will not be looking forward to seeing these actors in anything else – and after watching this, I’m taking a long break from Thai horror because damn did this suck massively.
This film could have been good, funny, more comedic, but they tried too hard to be serious with a horrendous budget. Not a good look for Thai horror or for anyone involved with the film.
