in thai horror movie Ghost Lab, Thanapob Leeratanakachorn V, an introverted young residency doctor who spends all his time in the hospital. When he is not on duty, he is quietly taking care of his unconscious mother. V’s colleague Gla, played by Paris Intarakomalyasut, is the exact opposite, a mild-mannered prankster and charismatic lover. But every time Vee is at her mother’s bedside, Gla is working on a secret project of her own.
He has converted an abandoned office space into the titular ghost lab, and after a shared paranormal encounter while working the night shift, invites Gla V to be a part of his research. Ambition for the young doctors is overcome by the idea that one day they will secure enough evidence of ghosts to publish the most extraordinarily important science, and Wei agrees to join Gla.
What happens next is an interesting story of how that ambition causes the two men and their experiment to be uncovered. is field research with paranormal activity-style security camera scares, countless “Ah!” Moments on the white board, and some moral and ethical blurring lines, eventually, Gla and Wee come to the conclusion that the only viable test subject in their ghost experiment may be one of them (big TW for suicide in this movie).

It’s entertaining enough to take viewers on a ride, even if it’s full of whiplash and plot holes and a confusing set of supernatural rules. But it’s perhaps most memorable for its unintentionally funny climax, during which the lab’s white board spins rapidly to reveal text written in Thai, visible out of nowhere. Its subtitle = “Ghosts?” translated as . And that pretty much sums up the film. V
