ShoutOUT! First Horror Film festival from Golden Village coming this week

Horror takes center stage as Golden Village unleashes its first Horror Film Festival equipped with a diverse line-up of the region's best new horror films interlaced with ghoulish terror to leave new and old fans of horror wanting more.

Get your adrenaline pumping as the festival kicks off on opening night, 27 October with a team of Singapore Paranormal Investigators as they let you in on their spooky encounters while exploring “haunted” buildings in Singapore. Not forgetting the opening film, The Promise (pictured above), a Thai horror with a plot of a broken promise between two friends Ib and Boum who decide to commit suicide together after a financial crisis. The Promise is the highest grossing horror movie in Thailand this year and will hit Singapore cinemas island-wide on 16 November after the Horror Film Festival.

On the film slate are also award-winning films The Autopsy of Jane Doe (English), The Bride (Mandarin), The Evil Within (English) and Dearest Sister (Laos). Dearest Sister is also the first Laotian film to have been selected to compete in the running for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars, 90th Academy Awards.

Horror-film junkies can catch the festival at Golden Village Plaza and Golden Village Yishun for one of the most ghoulish movie experiences in Singapore. Movie tickets for the opening night are priced at $10 (Members) and $13 (Public).

Here is the line of the films:

The Promise 114 mins


In 1997, the financial crash, known in Thailand as the Tom Yum Goong Crisis, was a disastrous event that crept over Asia and left millionaires bankrupt overnight. A bright future which two best friends, Boum and Ib, pictured together fell apart when they found out that their families were going bankrupt. All of their assets were seized to satisfy their debts. The construction of a premium luxury condominium, which their parents jointly invested in, had been suspended. Unable to accept the harsh truth, they decided to end their lives together at the unfinished tower, where they promised to be together forever. In the end, Ib died all alone.

Twenty years later, Boum (Numthip Jongrachatawiboon) becomes a successful real estate entrepreneur. One day, she gets to visit the abandoned tower with her beloved daughter, Bell (Apichaya Thongkham). That night, however, Boum wakes up and finds Bell sleepwalking and talking to herself in the dark. Bell’s sleepwalking condition continues to worsen every night. What concerns Boum the most is that Bell’s action and words in her sleepwalking state frighteningly remind Boum of Ib.

What measures will Boum take to release herself from the promise that binds her?
“Promise me you won’t leave me.”


Dearest Sister 101 mins


A Lao village girl travels to Vientiane to care for her rich cousin who has mysteriously lost her sight, and somehow gained the ability to communicate with the dead. Matters are further driven by the cousin’s ambivalent marriage with an Estonian expat, who has his own dark secrets to hide.


The Bride 88 mins


TV producer Cheng-ho is having a time of his life. His career in the TV station is going well, and he also starts living together with his fiancée. But ever since he picks  up a red envelope in a park, he keeps having a nightmare about an old mansion. After paying a visit to a psychic, he realizes that it is his memory of the previous incarnation.

Since her childhood, senior-high-school girl Yin-yin often sees things that don’t “exist”. Lately, such vision happens more and more frequently, and leaving her quite adrift. She knows that she has the vision to see ghosts, but she chooses to ignore it. Until one day, she gets possessed by a female ghost while training with the swim team.

The mystery of Cheng-ho’s previous incarnation, the distance between Yin-yin and the underworld, all come together in a mysterious way.

Japanese master of horror and Taiwanese rising director team up in making a brand-new horror movie, and challenge the limit of unknown terror.
