Phobia

Karma. Do you believe in them? I think I do. Like Justin's song, I think that 'what goes around comes back around...'. Therefore, don't ever do something that you gonna regret with the rest of your lives. Why the sudden deep thinking, you ask? Well, I just came back watching 'Phobia 2' with my fellow friends and out of the five stories in the movie, three of them revolve around karma.

'Phobia 2' is a Thai horror movie where there are five stand-alone short films in it and boys, what a ride this movie is. Let us go one by one, shall we?


Novice
The first story of the movie tells the tale of a young monk trying to escape his past but even being a Buddhist novice, he can't run away from the crime he committed. For me, out of the five stories, this is the scariest of them all for it is the most realistic. It makes you realize that you can't ever turn your back away from your past deeds and you will have to pay for it. I strongly feel for the novice especially at the final scene where karma finally caught him and he tried to ask forgiveness from his mother who he treated badly, to no avail.

Ward
The second story is more of a tale of wrong place at a wrong time. A teenager was hospitalized due to an accident and was in the same ward with a brain-dead old man. At night, events started to occur that made him think how 'alone' is he truly is. Not a bad addition to the movie but for me, the least important of them all.

Backpackers
Karma returns again and this time, his victims are the food of the undeads. It's a zombie flick and quite a nice one. It talks about human and drug trafficking and how evil is it. After watching this movie, any thoughts about going backpacking simply evaporated from my mind.

Salvages
Never ever buy a second hand car. You have no idea what the stories behind the car. And such stories come to haunt the salewoman and her son. Again, there's a feeling that karma is behind this.

In The End
The best of them all, 'In The End' is a hilarious yet spooky story about a couple of film crews in the making of a horror movie. There's a lot of funny moments in this movie that make you laugh out loud and when the twist was revealed, you can't help but laugh along with it. Really the best of it.

In short, this is a great horror movie that scares and makes you laugh. While watching this movie, I laughed more than I was scared because I was watching it with my coursemates and they're goofballs. They kept shielding their eyes and when there's scary moments, their reactions were hilarious. Must drag them along again whenever a horror movie is on air. To make it better, watch it in midnight and it'll double the thrill. Haha.

My exams weeks were filled with night outings so much that I don't feel like I was in the middle of examinations. Everywhere I go around campus, there are people reading or studying, revising for their papers. Me, on the other hand, watch TV shows in my laptop and went yum cha every night. I'm so gonna miss it when I'm back Ipoh. Haiz...
