Inspired by a true Thai ritual of lying in coffins to get rid of bad luck and prolong life, The Coffin is a supernatural thriller about a young man and a young woman who decide to go through the ritual in Thailand.

Chris, a claustrophobic architect does it in the hope of saving his fiancée who's dying of terminal cancer. Sue, a nutritionist visiting Thailand from Hong Kong does it to save her own life after being diagnosed with a lethal brain tumor - one week before her wedding.

After the ritual, Chris and Sue experience what appear to be miracles in their respective lives. But soon, they find themselves confronted by a series of bizarre and terrifying incidents. With the help of a professor specializing in paranormal cases associated with the ritual, they set out to exorcise the ghosts that haunt them, and attempt to reverse the wheel of karma. 

Thrilling, mysterious and ultimately moving, The Coffin is a spine-chilling horror about the beauty of life and death, and coming to face to face with living and dying.

* This is what I really think and feel about this movie... since I just got back from the cinema and the feeling is still fresh so I believe what I write is what I really feel and think...

1st I think it was boring, but it's not that bad... just not as what I'm aspecting it would be. The opening is really great... The ritual really meant something in Thailand so I'm not gonna comment on that... well even if I say it was boring but still the cast and the concept was great. It's a horror movie so of coz there is some parts that bring the chilled and some people do scream in the cinema which add the thrill feeling even when it's not really supposed to be feel like that.

 This is not listed in my so cool and top rated horror movie, and that's mean I'm not gonna suggest this movie if you're looking for a keep moving chill and thriller kind of story. But if you're a person who watch not just using your eyes but bring along your feelings and brain... then watch for it coz there is something they want us to learn... 

 The beauty of life and death... to teach us that fate is something that we have to accept when it's happened and move on and try to turn the bitter to sweet while facing the fact... not running and avoiding it coz life meant nothing without death.
