The arrival of Isabel is welcomed by almost the whole family, but adjusting an eight-year-old girl with a past of her own to a new life might be something more complicated than they expected. Strange things start to happen from the moment Isabel and "her imaginary friend Stevie" come to live with them. The situation becomes more complicated when Stevie's behavior becomes aggressive. Only Claire and Isabel know that Stevie is more than just a figment of Isabel's imagination. Claire will do everything to find out who Stevie is and what he wants. Perhaps if she succeeds, she will be able to recoup their lives and have the family she had desired for so long.


Scary stories to tell in the dark, in thailand

Per the synopsis its 4 scary short stories taking place in thailand. Overall I found myself disappointed. The first 3 stories didnt feel especially original and only the 4th seemed mildly unique. It mostly goes for a very typical haunted house asthetic of "omg its behind you!". None it was especially horrifying or intense. The second story which I thought kinda fun was let down by an overuse of cgi which has not aged all.

This is decent way to pass the time, but dont expect to be scared of your wits, this is pretty hokie.

Surprisingly enjoyable and good quality

I enjoyed this film very much despite having limited expectations. Each of the four segments plays out smoothly with few cheap scares and reasonably coherent plot development. That said, none of the chapters are particularly scary and it's all stuff we've seen before. What set it apart for me was the wry ingenuity of Man in the Middle and one small detail in The Last Flight - at one stage when the stewardess is serving the Princess, sunlight reflection from the aeroplane window moves slowly across the bulkhead behind as if the plane is banking. A nice touch. I can overlook that the galley interior is of a much larger plane than the 737 portrayed externally :-).

Nicely filmed anthology

This nicely filmed anthology is better than most. Filmed by some of Thailand's top directors, this movie is almost completely subtitled, which might be a turn off for some watchers. However they are fun stories if not the most original or unique. "Deadly Charm", "The Man In The Middle", and "Flight 244" are however rather predictable if you can follow the story or at least not as surprising as I'd hoped (especially the 'Man in the Middle" - which smacks of a true Hollywood ending). The first, "Loneliness", is the best, and the most spooky out all of them although each have their own 'jump' moment. "Deadly Charm" has an interesting link back to the first story "Loneliness" although this is not clearly spelled out. Is this worth a watch? Yes, so long as it doesn't cost you much. Do they make any sense? No more than a lot of other movies out there. Interestingly enough, two of them, "Deadly Charm" and "Flight 244" actually leave you (or at least it left me) feeling sort of sympathetic with a few of the characters which can be a unique situation for an anthology. But yes, you should watch this; they are well filmed, semi-cohesive tales full of little scares and lots of fun.
