An English-subtitled theatrical trailer for Taweewat Wantha's Long Weekend (Thongsook 13) has just been added to YouTube. Wave Pictures (Wave Entertainment PLC) released the movie theatrically in Thailand on January 31st.

According to Major Cineplex Group PLC (the following romanizations are its own), the screenplay for Long Weekend was written by Eakasit Thairaat, Sommai Lertularn, Adirek Watleela, and Wantha, based on a story by Thairaat. According to the international sales agent for the movie, Five Star Production Co. Ltd. (the following romanizations are its own), it stars Chinawut Indracusin, Sheranut Yusananda, Sean Jindachot, Akanat Ariyaritvikul, Natpassara Adulyamethasiri, and Kitlapat Korasudraiwon.

Here's a synopsis for Long Weekend from Five Star Production: "A group of teenagers goes on trip to an isolated island, where there was an old ceremony on Friday the 13th called 'The Night of Devouring Ghosts', which is when all the ghosts will come out for offerings. They use this chance to play a prank on Thongsook, a nerdy strange guy who they want to get rid of. They lock him up inside a cabinet in the old shrine on the island. But the joke isn't funny anymore when they come back to find Thongsook has disappeared from the locked cabinet and all hell starts to break loose."

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the trailers for the movies in the Takashige 'Taka' Ichise-produced Next Horror (Nekusuto horÔ) series, which is comprised of Eisuke Nait˘'s The Crone (K˘soku bÔba), K˘ji Shiraishi's Cult (Karuto), and Norio Tsuruta's Talk to the Dead (T˘ku tu za deddo).

Golden Village Pictures Pte. Ltd. is scheduled to release Long Weekend theatrically in Singapore on April 18th; MM2 Entertainment Sdn. Bhd. is scheduled to release it theatrically in Malaysia on the same day.

Here's a new synopsis for Long Weekend from Five Star Production: "Thongsook is a shy, nerdy, childlike teenager who's always harassed and made fun of by his friends since he was a boy. Luckily Thongsook has a best friend in Nam, a girl who's grown up with him and looks after him whenever she can. When Thongsook and Nam enter college, they hang out with a new group of friends: Boy, Jack, Beam and Pui. As usual, these new friends enjoy making fun of Thongsook, a fate that the young man has to endure with hardly a protest. But one long weekend during school break, these bullies will experience something so terrifying that will forever change their idea about Thongsook. The whole gang take a trip to a deserted island in the middle of a lake but Thongsook is not invited despite Nam's insistence. However, once they arrive at the island, Thongsook shows up mysteriously. The pleasant vacation turns horribly wrong on the second night - it is Friday the 13th, known as The Night of the Devouring Ghosts."

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the trailer for K˘ichi Sakamoto's Travelers (ToraberÔzu: jigen keisatsu).

Long Weekend is scheduled to be screened at this year's Far East Film Festival (FEFF) in Udine, Italy on April 25th (technically, April 26th) at 12:10 a.m. (00:10).

Here's an excerpt from Wise Kwai's "4/5" review of Long Weekend: "Taweewat's trademark outrageousness is toned down only a bit for this teen slasher-thriller, and it has nearly that same unstoppable energy as his SARS Wars or the sci-fi farce The Sperm. Just when you think things can't get any crazier, they do. Only instead of humor, Taweewat taps into that energy for breathless, non-stop scares. During the last half of the movie, there is no let up, save for a humorous moment in which one of the characters is dispatched with a long-tail boat propeller. He's dead already and doesn't want to die again. 'I'm dead enough,' he laments as the blades hack into his head."

BTW, if you haven't already done so, be sure to watch the teaser trailer for Hiroyuki Nakao's Time Scoop Hunter (Gekij˘-ban: taimu sukűpu hantÔ).
