Logline:

The English-language film tells a spine-chilling story about a man and a woman who are confronted by a series of paranormal and terrifying incidents after going through the bizarre death-before-dying ritual.

Synopsis:

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.

 

The Coffin was shot in Bangkok and five other provinces across Thailand. Filming locations include a 100-year-old Thai temple, an ancient meditation cave, actual cemeteries and inside active crematorium chambers.
