Netflix has released the trailer for Ghost Lab, the streamer’s upcoming supernatural thriller feature from Thailand.
The film follows Gla (Paris Intarakomalyasut) and Wee (Thanapob Leeratanakajorn), two doctor buddies whose worlds begin to spiral after an encounter with what they believe to be a ghost. The occurrence sparks a desire to find proof of ghosts and of an afterlife – a mission that becomes a reckless and dangerous obsession, soon threatening more than just their friendship.
“Ghost Lab‘s storyline is quite unconventional, because it attempts a deeper exploration of our belief in the supernatural, and whether this can be proven by science,” says director Paween Purijitpanya, whose credits include 2017 horror film Body and segments in horror anthology pictures Phobia (2008) and Phobia 2 (2009). “It’s an honour to be partnering with a global platform that allows for creative expression and I hope this movie will encourage the audience to contemplate their ways of life and find the answers to their questions.”
Ghost Lab will be streaming on Netflix from May 26th.
Official synopsis for Ghost Lab:
A research experiment about the afterlife goes awry, when Gla and Wee, two medical doctor buddies see a ‘ghost’ with their own eyes for the first time, an encounter that spawns an insatiable binge to find a scientific explanation for ghostly spirits, and to find proof of an afterlife. Their fixation and reckless pursuit of knowledge will take them down a rabbit hole that will cost them their friendship, and their loved ones.
