Ghost Lab is a 2021 Thai supernatural horror film about scientists investigating the paranormal with terrifying consequences.
Directed by Paween Purijitpanya (Phobia and Phobia 2; Body), the GDH 559 production (Bad Genius) stars Thanapob Leeratanakajorn (The Swimmers), Paris Intarakomalyasut and Nuttanicha Dungwattanawanich.
“The storyline is quite unconventional because it attempts a deeper exploration of our belief in the supernatural, and whether this can be proven by science,” said director Purijitpanya. “I hope this movie will encourage the audience to contemplate their ways of life and find the answers to their questions.”
“Ghost Lab dabbles in horror and horror-comedy, but it prefers to linger in drama for extended periods. It’s less interested in the paranormal and far more intrigued by the consequences of Wee and Gla’s pursuit. That’s an admirable departure from the norm, but the bursts of high melodrama and disjointed narrative leaps make for a confusing viewing experience.” Bloody Disgusting
“As horror movies about ghosts go, Ghost Lab is very interesting at its core. The problem is simply that it is too long and too slow at times. The best horror moments almost reminded me of The Invisible Man because of the whole ghost (as in an entity you can’t see). However, be warned, there are also many very visually creepy moments.” Heaven of Horror
“Sit tight and watch the first half to get something visceral in the second. True, suspension of disbelief is necessary, but it will definitely be rewarding. Moreover, the leads are great in their roles and there’s a good balance of emotional and supernatural to keep things fresh and entertaining.” Leisure Byte
“Concluding with an emotional and haunting climax, Ghost Lab is a lot different than what I expected when I started watching the film. Despite my initial boredom, Ghost Lab improves with one massive twist, and it becomes hard to predict what will happen next.” Ready Steady Cut
Netflix will stream Ghost Lab globally on May 26, 2021.
