Ghost Lab [Movie Review]

Ghost Lab [Movie Review] | Oh yeah. Another Thai's ghost movie. I make it a point to watch Thai's horror movies and some Indonesian's horror movies too. All because the ghosts are a tad too similar to ours here, so yeah. I want to know what to do when I encounter one (if I encounter one, provided I was still standing hahaha).

I clicked on the play button with my mind ready to be spooked.

Dr. Wee and Dr. Arj-Ong (or Dr. Gla) are best friends and are both working in a hospital. Dr. Wee has been living in the hospital to take care of his comatose mother (she has been in the state for 7 years). All his salary is being given to the hospital to enable him to be always beside his mother and give her the best possible medical attention.

Dr. Gla is obsessed with proving that ghost is real, ever since he thinks he saw his father's ghost years ago. Dr. Wee on the other hand does not believe in anything that science can't approve of. Despite their beliefs, both are still best friends. 

Until one incident when they both accidentally encountered a spirit of a burnt victim that died in the hospital earlier. With Dr. Wee is now on board with his research, Dr. Gla shares all his notes about ghost and ghost encounters around the world, in their hospital included. 

Dr. Gla comes up with a theory that not all ghost can materialise - what if ghost exist as spirits around us and has been showing their existence all along, without the living ones realising?

And to prove his theory, Dr. Gla tries to woo a dying cancer patient and be his boyfriend during her last hour. All so that when she dies happy as his girlfriend, her spirit will come back and tell him about her 'unfinished business' with Dr. Gla.

Dr. Wee was a bit uncomfortable with this deceiving plan. But as they were discussing the plan, his mother passes away. Still thinking that he owes his mother a lot, he whispers to his dead mother to come back and talk to him for the last time.

That night, his mother's spirit was in the room but he couldn't hear what she was saying.

Now Dr. Wee is obsessed with the research. He attempted to kill himself just so he could go across and later communicate with Dr. Gla from the other side. But as he was about to pull the trigger, he sees his mother asking him not to go through with the research.

He listened. But Dr. Gla is not one to do his research halfway, snatch the pistol from Dr. Wee's hand and shoot himself. 

Now, Dr. Wee is personally invested in the research as he wants to talk to Dr. Gla and his mother. But when nothing happens after a few weeks, he becomes depressed and attempts to kill himself. That's when Dr. Gla's spirit comes and saves him. 

Thinking that the research is a success, Dr. Wee is determined to know more about the spirit world and devises an experiment that will either make it a success or will destroy his life.

Will he ever let go of the past or will he carry on with his obsession?

Plot: 4.3/ 5.0 A ghost story? Yes. A drama? Yes. Was it scary? Not so as it was not all about ghost story. There were some scare-jump scenes and the ghosts are not as many as I would like them to. But yes, it gives us another perspective about ghosts - some are around us and giving us signs of their existence. Not all will be able to materialise in front of us. 

An enjoyable movie and it teaches us to be moderate in everything that we do. And respect the dead. 

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0 The performance was great. Believable and I come to hate Dr. Wee. 

Will I watch it again: Yes, I don't mind watching it again.
