Art of Devil was a Thailand horror film. A story of the reunion of six souls commences, a haunting past binds the circle of friends in an evil world filled with black magic and doom.
It’s all about revenge of their teacher named Boom was pregnant from an affair. One of her student captured a video of their sexual moment, and used this to leave him and his family alone. Furious… she goes to a witch doctor and has him use black magic against her ex-lover and his family. They all die in disbelieving scene.
Forget all the run through, violence and mish-mash of Khmer magic and folklore, what it comes down to is the repercussions of your actions; reaping the rewards or paying the price. Choices are strange and often trivial, split-second moments of time and space, but the fallout is often long-lasting and drawn out. Like the shaman suggests, the choice of the teens to lay the curse will affect them to the very day they die. Thus is the penalty for their actions and they must be distrustful of this annoyance wherever they go, symbolically and factually. The same ‘laws’ apply to the teacher and the coach as well – with their lustful choices come appropriate consequences. There is almost a downward spiral or domino effect implied in the screenplay for all involved, like telling a lie that leads to deeper and deeper lies. Each action the characters take leads them to another more important action, and in turn, more terrible consequences.
