The Psychological Horror Movie That Fans Of Ghost Lab Need To See

If you're a movie lover, one of life's great joys is finding a new flick that surprises you. But discovering a great movie can also be bittersweet because once you've seen it, the surprise is gone. If you're like us, your next move may be to look for another film that can fill the void. And we're here to help.

The latest film that movie lovers are falling for is "Ghost Lab," a supernatural horror thriller from Thai director Paween Purijitpanya. It stars Paris Intarakomalyasut and Thanapob Leeratanakachorn as Gia and Wee, two friends and doctors who are determined to prove that ghosts exist at the hospital where they both work. Netflix released the trailer for "Ghost Lab" on April 29, 2021, and based on the clip, the film has all the ingredients necessary for a gripping ghost yarn: a setting that many people already find scary, floating objects, and lots and lots of jump scares.

"Ghost Lab" should be another entry in Netflix's strong horror catalog. And if you're looking for more great horror, especially Thai horror, what better place to start than Purijitpanya's other films? Here's one entry from his filmography that "Ghost Lab" fans will want to check out.

Warning: spoilers for "Body" ahead.

The film we were referring to is Purijitpanya's 2007 thriller "Body," which was originally called "Sob 19" in Thai, or "Corpse No. 19." The story follows a young man named Chon who begins having dreams about a woman being murdered and suspects they might not be dreams after all. As he investigates, the line between imagination and reality becomes blurred, and Chon learns some disturbing truths about himself. "Body" is also an example of Purijitpanya's affinity for the supernatural, as it turns out the woman isn't just a figment of his imagination.

"Body" doesn't have a critics' rating on Rotten Tomatoes – not uncommon for international films released in the mid-late 2000s — but does boast a solid 60% based on over 250 audience reviews. Purijitpanya clearly knows his way around a reality-bending ghost story, so if you enjoyed "Ghost Lab," you can't go wrong with "Body."

"Ghost Lab" premieres on Netflix on May 26, 2021.
