24 frames has announced that it has the rights - including remake rights - to the Asian Horror Film Alone for their 24 frames extreme label. This is the second horror film from the directing duo Pisanthanakun and Wongpoom who made the movie Shutter, now undergoing a Hollywood remake by Twentieth Century Fox and Vertigo Entertainment.
The horror film ALONE tells the story of Pim who moved from Thailand to Korea to escape the guilt of being the surviving half of a conjoined twin. Flashbacks to Pim's childhood show how the bittersweet relationship with her sister, and their commitment to stay together forever, transforms into a repressive bond that ultimately leads to separation. After she returns to visit her dying mother, the spirit of her dead sister angrily thrusts herself into Pim's life.
"The directors know the best thrillers and horror are built on common, identifiable themes such as sibling rivalry, romantic jealousy and family guilt," 24 frames President Ludo Cremers told SFcrowsnest.com. "The dark, psycho thriller elements recall the best of Hitchcock and DePalma."
