Netflix has acquired worldwide SVOD rights, excluding China, to Thai romantic horror hit Krasue: Inhuman Kiss from Thailand’s M Pictures.
Based on popular South East Asian folklore, a krasue is a half-human female ghost who lives a normal life like an ordinary woman during the daytime. But when night comes, her head will be detached from her body and float around looking for flesh and blood to consume.
Directed by Sittisiri Mongkolsiri and written by The Love of Siam’s director Chookiat Sakweerakul, the film became the third biggest Thai film this year so far when it was released in March. It recently had its European premiere at Udine Far East Film Festival.
It has been sold to 11 Asian territories, which have either released the film theatrically or are about to. They are: Hong Kong, Taiwan, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
