One night, a blackout occurred when May and Jublek are at their tutoring school in Siam Square. It’s not just the building – it’s a blackout in the entire Siam Square, Bangkok’s most famous nerve center of young people. When the lights came back on, they're reminded of the tale of a girl that mysteriously disappeared in Siam Square many years ago. It is rumoured that her spirit has haunted the place, and every time there's a blackout, she will appear to take someone with her. May, Jublek and their group of friends begin to experience unusual incidents, and the myth of the Siam Square spirit becomes more powerful in their minds. Above that, they have to worry about their entrance exam and romantic conflicts that come between them. (Source: shaun-owyeong.blogspot) Edit Translation

RECOMMENDED IF you are up for a scary movie with decent amount of jumpscares, not really gore/violent, has a story plus backstory. Acting is good, effects are decent, the movie is not pure horror, it has interspersed elements of comedy and teeny budding romances.

STORY:::
---------------------------------------------------------------
FIRST 10 MINUTES:
The movie starts with a group of students at a cram school, at night, asking a girl about her friend who has been missing for a while. And once she explains there is a sudden blackout.
The urban legend of girl haunting Siam Square is narrated (I was hooked by this point), after which the movie continues to explain what has happened leading up to this point.
---------------------------------------------------------------
PACE:
Was decent. There was a stuff happening, so you'd be engaged but not too soon as to be confusing. Just optimum for a lazy watch (for a horror movie of course).
---------------------------------------------------------------
PLOT:
> Overall, nothing controversial. There are few plot-holes but nothing I want to hang on to.

> Almost had a mini rollercoaster of emotions but I am glad I sat through it.

> SCARE FACTOR: was just okay, for a horror movie though there were few plot points where tbh I had to mute/ pause and catch my breath to continue. More than the jumpscares, the makeup and the CGI (well it got to me, I can be a scaredy-cat), I liked the story telling - (narration / the plot itself) - which could scare. No gore/ extreme violence or bloodshed. As mentioned movie often makes the mood lighter with comic and emotional elements.

> ROMANCE FACTOR (Since the synopsis mentions "romantic conflicts"): I do appreciate romance even in horrors haha, and there are few romantic interests going around, at least one of which that I found cute.

> DEPTH: Movie offers more than just scares.

---------------------------------------------------------------
TYPE OF ENDING:
Closure : I'd say 98% if I were to nitpick
Happy/sad : better than I'd hoped for - it is more than just happy or sad, I'd call it satisfying.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


ACTING: Was good. Almost all the main characters were high schoolers who were trying to get to the bottom of what ws happening. And they played their parts well. There are definitely deeper emotions, I personally found nothing lacking. Each actors have done their part pretty well, they fit their characters


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


MY OPINION: Overall, I enjoyed watching it, definitely do not regret or think it was waste of time. I would recommend as horror that can be watched on a lazy day. I am not big on rewatching (ever) but wouldn't mind re-watching this with company either.
