These trails will be held once again at Fort Siloso.

(Meanwhile, read up on our writer's trip to last year's Sentosa Spooktacular!)

The reason for choosing Thai horror movie as the main theme this year is because when anybody mentions about horror films, no doubt the Thai horror films are one of the scariest movies made. Thai horror movies have always been one of the top-of-mind recall for such references. From curses to revengeful ghosts and demonic possessions, Thai horror movies have never failed to deliver the chills.

Senior director of International Business department for GMM Tai Hub Co., Ltd, Yongyoot Thongkongtoon mentioned that they chose specifically these five films for the Halloween event as they resonate well with Singaporeans during their screening in the past few years.

“When we reeced the place, I felt that Fort Siloso reminded me of a scene in Shutter, with the photos on the wall and doors surrounding it”, Parkpoom Wongpoom, film director of the global hit, Shutter added.

Expect to ‘bump into’ “Nak”, ghost wife in Pee Mak, vengeful sprit “Dararai” from Body, “Netre” from Shutter, angry child “Wichien” from Dorm and fans’ favourite, “Chaba” from Coming Soon. Besides these themed-ghosts, Spooktacular’s famed resident ghost ambassadors such as the Pontianak, the Chinese Ghost Bride, the Dead Soldier and the Chinese Vampire (Jiang Shi)!

It was a dream come true for Wongpoom for a film to be part of a theme park and adding to the excitement, Paween Purijitpanya, director of the slick horror Body also said that he was very excited and happy when he first heard the news.

They not only want visitors of the Sentosa Spooktacular to feel “scarily fun”, Wongpoom said “cannot sleep”, to which they all burst out laughing.
