• Art of the Devil 2‘s Kongkiat Komesiri and Issara Nadee have Dark Flight on the way. Teaser art has surfaced. You’ll find it below.

Synopsis: It starts with a plane crash. Everyone on board is killed, except one. Sunee, a beautiful flight attendant, escapes death almost miraculously. After the investigation, it turns out that the plane has had several accidents before, and every time it was repaired and repainted to regain its normal condition. This confirms for Sunee that the strange hallucinations she saw while working on the plane were not the product of her imagination, but actually spirits of the passengers who died on it. Sunee finds a new job at another airline. She wants to start her life anew, but three years later, the nightmare catches up with her. She learns that the flight that she’ll operate on today will use the same aircraft that crashed three years ago. On this flight Sunee will face the terror that she cannot escape – on the plane that has become the prison for so many spirits and dead souls. This time, they’re determined to take her along on their last flight.

“We knew that we hadn’t brought the horror,” he says, “and that people needed to see it to believe it. Thank God for Kickstarter and our supporters, whose contributions allowed us to shoot this new scene, bring the tension and fear that totally balance out the wackiness. We believe this trailer finally shows what Rose is all about, in one compressed kaleidoscope of high-voltage crazy. It also reveals the range of our phenomenal star, Chase McKenna.”
