Directed by “Goff” Paween Purijitpanya (Body, 4BIA, Phobia 2), GHOST LAB is a thriller film about supernatural experiments that cross the boundaries between life and death. It stars “Tor” Thanapob Leeratanakachorn, “Ice” Paris Intarakomalyasut and “Nychaa” Nuttanicha Dungwattanawanich.
Director Paween Purijitpanya, said, "GHOST LAB’s storyline is quite unconventional, because it attempts a deeper exploration of our belief in the supernatural, and whether this can be proven by science. It's an honor to be partnering with a global platform that allows for creative expression and I hope this movie will encourage the audience to contemplate their ways of life and find the answers to their questions.”
Malobika Banerji, Director of Content, Southeast Asia at Netflix said, "GHOST LAB is a bold, original film from the brilliant mind of Director Paween Purijitpanya and an incredible Thai cast and crew. We're excited to partner with GDH to bring this film to our members in Thailand and around the world."
Jina Osothsilp, Chief Executive Officer of GDH, said, “This year, GDH will continue to produce a diverse and fresh slate of top-quality Thai films like GHOST LAB. These are films which will cement GDH's reputation as being in the forefront of the Thai filmmaking industry. We are happy that our titles will have the chance to capture audiences around the world on Netflix.’’
GHOST LAB is GDH's first title to be exclusively available on Netflix. It is also the first locally produced Thai title in Dolby Vision.
