Solid filler from Sippapak. It takes a while for the film to get up to steam, but it's once it gets going, it becomes a sweet and gentle romance. Films about films tend to be a little cynical and heavy-handed, luckily Sippapak steers clear from all that and keeps it light and comfortable. Not exceptional and a bit long maybe, but not a bad film at all.

A trio of horror shorts linked together by their use of cam footage. The first short is pretty interesting, featuring no audible dialogue and monochrome images. The second (and longest) short is rather plain though and the last one is simply ridiculous. Not a terrible anthology, but Sippapak and Moeithaisong have made better films together.
