The whole truth a haunting mystery the latest Thai ghost movie from Netflix, directed by Wisit Sasanaeng starring protagonists and Punpun Sutatta, the story of a mysterious hole in the wall of the grandmother’s house where two brothers meet. and became the starting point for revealing the dark secrets of this family. Come see the original Thai movie, the latest movie released in the world line “The Whole Truth” (Haunted Mystery), a hidden mystery thriller. The director and screenwriter of “Wisit Sasanaatieng” who still picks up the style and signature of horror movie making. Its own leverage can be used. Under the concept of a film that looks interesting, not light. But the overall picture is still far from Masterpiece.
The whole truth review: The story
The story begins with Pim and Pat, two brothers who have to move into the new house of their grandparents, who came to pick them up after their mother had a car accident and ended up in a coma in the hospital. When they arrived at their grandparents’ house, they were uncomfortable with their strange behavior, and when they came across a mysterious hole in the wall that shined in, they saw a strange room on the other side. This makes the story of this house even more mysterious.
The plot, if you look superficially Maybe it’s like copying the western movie The visitors by director M Night Shmalayan, that’s the same, just the plot. Although he had the same mysterious appearance But the inside of the hallucination puzzle was very different. From now on, the content of the reviews may contain vague spoilers. Also because it is hard to avoid writing about the great efforts of many genres of stories such as teens, ghosts, sci-fi, crime, psychology, which here is considered a spoiler that this story is a combination of many genres. It is not ghost or pure horror. These kinds of movies in the past Okay, mixing different genres together can be a good idea to diversify the plot.
Could be flipped back and forth what made this story come that way By setting the story of a teenager’s life as the opening of the story to seem like a mystery. Of the fact that Pim’s classmates have some secrets hidden. and try to use this point to intimidate her brother Pat into working with. This was followed by finding a hole in the house that was thrown into an all-out ghost story. Before we shuffle our legs, let’s answer with sci-fi theory. This is followed by a turn on the crime lane line.
Before going back to psychology and then switching back to ghosts where the story flips back and forth across many genres, as can be seen, it was meant to make the story look more complicated and challenging to follow. which was effective in that regard. But the problem is, every cover doesn’t make it look smooth or dull, like you want to fill something up. with the crime of revenge on the driver who hit Pim’s mother. These two stories have almost nothing to do with the main storyline. It’s just the content to fool the audience into thinking there’s something about the hole in the story. Or, like trying to turn ghosts into a sci-fi cross-dimensional wormhole theory? It is what is called stuffed stump. very artless without any further explanation before the ending becomes a psychology. It’s an attempt to make the story seem extremely complicated. But the result is too much effort that it doesn’t look very smooth.
But at least there are advantages. Although the story is set in different genres, it does not seem confusing or difficult to understand. It’s an attempt to make the story look extremely complicated.

The whole truth Assessment and analysis
The highlight of the film is the smooth, bright visual work, playing the camera angles quite extreme. Help us stay on screen until the end to win that. What’s behind that hole? At the same time, what seems to be the film’s weak point is the heart of the story, the ‘script’. The movie has many subplots. Choose to enter until between chapters the main storyline is periodically blocked. and when it came to the moment the curtain opened to the story’s main clue, it wasn’t so shocking. The film tries to pick up tools and equipment to tell stories that are new and interesting, but unfortunately the raw materials used are still the same as in other films we’ve seen before.
Another obvious wound is the character’s mood jump. Some scenes are continuous scenes. But the mood of the character is not constant. until the audience got into the mood too because it had to start thinking the problem was the actors’ performance Or was it intentionally designed to communicate that way?
But the narrative sequence and atmosphere of the film can still be done at an intermediate level. that can be looked at even further than this. The film has laid out many interesting issues. But in the end it is all confused with a single axis, that only this axis is almost unavoidable. The good concept of the film is conveyed in a rather typical cliché. I also wanted to see excitement and joy, but I still couldn’t do it with my heart. The Whole Truth therefore comes out as just a thriller with a repeating storyline that tries to deflect here and there. But it still hasn’t reached the point where it will amaze the audience with the unfolding of every song. because the tone of the story is not that exciting. Against the background of a family that the audience could have guessed from the beginning, the family probably had some quirks and secrets. That’s why it’s not that exciting to solve the different clues.
But the strong point of the film is of course that it has to be the team of actors “Punpun Suttatta” and Being “Mc Nuttapach” considered the main characters. To be honest, they didn’t even finish the entire movie. Must come to the professionalism of the? seniors “Koi Tarika” and “Moo Sompob” to help support So they all help each other to make this film a success. Although the direction of their performance was not spectacular at all. But it does well by their standards.
The last words
Let’s say The whole truth is a hallucinogenic mystery. It is a film that tries to break out of the genre from a perspective rarely seen in Thai films. But this attempt was not yet a complete success. It’s mediocre, not bad, but not as good as it should be. Movies to be enjoyed and enjoyed according to the story in an effort to excite. But those who like mystery detective movies will probably like this enough. The plot tries to complicate things by using multiple genres together. But it turned out to be an attempt to make the story seem slick and boring from start to finish. The spooky ghost scene is repeated. no novelty The actors who are famous for this are so voluptuous that they seem unnatural and solid. Recite the dialogue clearly. until the film was sucked away again. This is perhaps the most disappointing work of director Wisit Sasanaatieng.
