Haunted City (2014) Thai/Chinese Horror with Coco Li
Haunted City (2014) Thai/Chinese Horror with Coco Li

original Thai title PHISING MEUXNG [Haunted City]

director: Sukosin Akkarapat
starring: Coco Li Zhang Haosen Suchada Chongswang Terdporn Manophaiboon

Ye Fan and his girlfriend Liu travel to Thailand for an antique-hunting weekend in the Chatuchak market. They discover a gorgeous antique mirror with a sinister history. It had once belonged to a beautiful entertainer who was found dead in front of it, seemingly the victim of suicide. But that legend is not fully accurate. Rather, there is someone or something evil lurking inside the mirror...

This debut project for young Thai director Sukosin Akkarapat was initially conceived as a major Beijing-Thailand co-production [essentially, financed by China; shot in Thailand] starring pop idol Coco Li from the long running Chinese TV series Da Zhai Men (Dazhai Gate). But after several re-writes, followed by the director's refusal to eliminate crucial supernatural elements from the script, the inventors began to get cold feet. They became concerned that the film would never pass Article 3 of the Chinese government censorship policy* which would cause mainland destitution problems, severely limiting the film's financial bottomline. As a result, the partnership was severed and the project got completed with a smaller budget by a Thai studio. As of this writing, the movie remains unreleased in mainland China.
