During school break, there was a rule that students must leave their school dormitories to return home. However, a group of student gathered their gang for another trial of ghost challenge. Their place of choice was “Daeng Building” which held a story of student’s tragic suicide. After the suicide, the building was abandoned and became restricted to all students. With a dirty foul mouth, the students wildly challenged the dead from the story. Add Synopsis In Portuguese
Cast & Credits
They're noisy, brawny, oh-no-they-didn't B-class teen actors that get by on their looks and/or comedic outrageousness, but still, I can't help but surrender to their moronic charms...
But not even the very soft spot I have for this bunch of loveable idiots, could save this painful mess...
Not that the prequels deserve any awards for best movies - but they were kind of funny every now and then and made them watchable.
This one... well... let's just say that half of the movie is spent running hence and forth in the dark, sceaming and yelling. (Though, James Vejvongsa has the most epic girly shriek ever... one of the few amusing things about this flick...)
The other movies in the series, of course, also contain a huge part of screaming and running - but this got really ridiculous. You were wondering when there would actually be some kind of plot or acting - not just yelling at the top of their lungs until they ran out of breath. (Fortunately, after about 1/3 of the movie, they at least did something WHILE screaming.)
Unfortunately - that just didn't improve the overall experience very much.
The story is virtually nonexistent - in contrary to the earlier movies. Their plots were almost as thin as water, but at least there was a beginning, a middle, an end and a specific task/ordeal to go through and solve. In this one, there just isn't. I have no idea why the scriptwriters couldn't come up with ANYTHING.
I gladly volunteer to scribble something up if they're gonna make a 4th one... (which the ending clearly hints.)
It's a shame that they didn't give the guys something to work with, since they have the knack for comedic slapstick humour and could've made this a more amusing watch.
Another thing about the story that I disliked, was the uncomfortable Tsunami-setting.
I just don't think enough time has passed since the Boxing Day disaster of 2004, for a horror comedy movie to be made about the particular scenario. (Nor the 2011 Japanese tragedy.)
The attempt of redeeming it and trying to turn it into a sad thing instead, just didn't smooth it out enough for me. I think that relatives and friends of victims from 2004, should stay away from this one because they might find the use of the dead very offensive.
It was quite distasteful in my opinion. I felt bothered by it and it affected the movie negatively.
To wrap it up - there was SOME kind of story so bottom score isn't applicable - and I didn't hate it enough to consider it utter trash, so my verdict is 2. A disaster, but not of mega quake magnitude.
SFX suck, makeup sucks, directing sucks, script sucks.
For the acting - well, I think most of us can agree on the fact that these aren't guys that will be nominated for any Best Actor awards... (But who knows, there might be some gems among them, that just hasn't had the opportunity to try out any serious roles. That would be interesting to find out.)
But they ARE gifted with comedic talent and expressivity, as well as shamelessness and guts.
Not to mention a LOT of charisma and awesome chemistry in their co acting.
With a bit more time, more experience and better directing, many of them might just develop into high quality comedy stars. They work hard and try their best with what they have to work with.
So my low rating for the acting isn't all about their qualities but has a lot to do with the crappy script and directing. The production wasted their potential.
A little plus though, is that many of them are quite pleasant for the eye... ;) Nick Kunatip is quite the eye candy and probably will turn out totally lethal in a couple of years... (Shit, I'm far too old for him, but still, he gives me a nosebleed...)
Another little plus in the movies, for me, as an incurable BL-fangirl, is the wink to the BL fandom.
It's satirical and obviously makes fun of the huge boy x boy fandom in Asia, but it's not done in a mocking way, which I really appreciate. The bromance relationship between Brian and Net is quite funny and in this movie they really went all out with different constellations of (ridiculous) mouth to mouth methods... lol...
Satire on cultural phenomena is always fun and I love it.
Music and score...? Huh? Was there any...? I hardly thought about it. That about says it all.
There had to be - so I can't rate it 1 and it can't have been appalling since I didn't react, so I can't rate it 1 for that either, so I'll settle for 3.
As for rewatch value... although it's a crappy movie, there is a possibility that I might watch it again some time if I have nothing better to do (but there usually are tons of more high quality stuff to devour) but in that case, it'll be solely enduring it, for my favourite goon squad.
If you want something even remotely good - don't watch.
If you want something really funny - don't watch.
If you, like me, love these idiots and can take 95 minutes of junk cinema just to savour the few quality moments of Nick, James and their sidekicks - go for it.
I have to admit, the first two movies were not the best, but that depends on what you came here for. (I came here looking for BL and I got a bit in the second movie, but anyway). In this movie, a lot more happens, and I feel like there is more depth. The acting is beyond realistic, the plot is way easier to follow, and it actually fits into the horror category this time. The story is a bit confusing at the beginning, but if you follow through, it becomes way clearer. The thing I loved the most about this movie was the constant excitement. It did seem like they were running around and screaming for a bit, but if you pay attention to the different scenes, each led up to one phenomenal ending. This cast is one of the best I've seen in a while. They fit the role so perfectly that I had to question if it was really acting. I have to say that their acting skills have gotten way better since the first movie, and they will continue to get better and better as time goes on. My heart had literally packed up and left my chest by the end of the movie, and I have to admit that I was almost in tears.
If you are looking for horror, this may be down your lane. Maybe. Not a lot of horror aspects, but if you are a chicken/sucker, then this is for you.
If you are looking for straight up comedy, I definitely recommend this.
If you are looking for your feelz to get attacked, this is DEFINITELY the movie for you.
