Art of the Devil (2004)

Thai horror film about a spurned woman who uses witchcraft to wreak vengeance on a cheating cad and his family so that she can get his house. Or something like that. Honestly, I don't have anything interesting to say about this incompetent, scare-free shitpile. The writers put a lot of credence in their melodramatic plot, so you wonder why they didn't bother to have it make sense; meanwhile, director Tanit Jitnukul shows no flair for pacing, tension or, indeed, anything you'd want a horror director to have. The gore scenes are brief and ineffective, save for one semi-decent scene where a guy explodes from being full of eels. This should be called Ass of the Devil, 'cause that's what it is -- a whole heaping helping of ass.

Grade: D
