Dorm (2006)

Director: Songyos Sugmakanan

Starring: Charlie Trairat, Chintara Sukapatana, Sirachuch Chienthaworm

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Every dorm has a tale. But this tale, you will never forget.

Plot: When 12-year-old Ton (Trairat) transfers to an all-boys boarding school, he's taunted by his peers and terrified by their tales about the ghosts that inhabit the school. Ton is utterly miserable -- until he befriends a mysterious fellow pupil.

My rating: 8/10

Will I watch it again? It could happen

Excellent ghost story out of Thailand! It's less on horror than most would like but it's a very well-told story that has charm, humor and tenderness...and a ghost who dies every evening at 6pm. It starts out like a lot of typical Asian horror films but before you know it, you're going somewhere unexpected and poignant. The performances by the children, particularly Trairat, are first rate. Highly recommended.
