“The Whole Truth” Review: A Thai Movie Full of Vaguely Scary

It’s an ordinary morning at the delightful suburban home of CEO May (Nicole Terio) and her high school kids Pim (Sutata Udomilsp) and Put (Natapat Nimnirawat). May prepares for a big promotion, and Pim returns as captain of her cheerleading team and Putt, the dreamer who draws in her sketchbook.

Nothing in this house photo? Father. Put, who wears a leg brace, is bullied at school; The handsome and popular Pim is her fierce defender. But when a collision happens, the drunk driver takes May to the intensive care unit in a coma, Grandma and Grandpa Pim and Putt never meet. They pick her up. Fong (Sombop Benjatikul) is short and authoritative, while his wife Wang (Tarkia Tidatit) is aloof and suffers from dementia. You go to Grandma’s house, confused and wary.

The trash atmosphere in the grandparents’ house is quite strange:

But then Post a hole notice in the living room wall. He looked through it, only to see a strange reflection of the room he was in, with the significant difference that it was a scary child with rotting skin and ink coloured hair hanging from his face and black blood gushing from his mouth, you could see that the hole was there is.

“You childrenswear liars! Fong is angry. The grandfather also kicked a few chairs at the police station, where he used to be a captain – he wants answers about whose car hit his daughter’s car and suspects the descendants of the great developer there.

Put, and Pim saw more and more as they looked into the hole; In fact. Which it does seems to be showing them a version of their family’s past. Who is that scary girl? Why is she holding the baby? And wait, is that the figure of a relaxed man lying on the sofa? And why wouldn’t grandpa and grandma admit that they even saw the hole? If his mother wakes up from the coma, there will be vengeance for this extended family. But even then, it is not clear whether it can reveal the whole Truth.

Pim must grapple with her bullied younger brother. The baddies she shoots on the cheerleading squad. Her unconscious mother and grandparents she never knew who was almost scarier. Than anything that had happened to her, strange holes in the walls. Fittingly, Sutatta Udomsilp lets Pim’s temper smoulder somewhere between cold stability and fear of ghost stories.

Although there are some scenes at Pim and Put’s school;

The crash scene and several other scenes in his mother’s hospital room. The Whole Truth mainly explores home and home and interior scenes that we should call safe. When May Putt’s classmate allows her to come after school.

She unknowingly leaves her son’s tyrant and daughter’s tormentor to operate freely in her home. When the children meet their grandparents, Wang explodes into inappropriate emotions. “You lived there as a child, don’t you remember?” he asked Pim as if the stereotype that Grandma’s house was a safe place would free her from the possibility that Wang and Fong might be strangers to their grandson.

And after settling under their roof with an old house creaking and cracking and holes in the walls popping up with their revelations of twisted family history, Pim and Putt discover that the house itself is Pandora’s box of sinister secrets.

All Truth’s director, Visit Sasanatieng, does this with his camera crawling up and down dark stairs, constantly aware of the suspended ceiling, only to add to the claustrophobic vibe for Pim and Put. There’s more to the James One franchise and scary films in this exciting space exploration. The whole Truth is somewhat sidelined by the horror film Creepy Kid, but it shines in its portrayal of personal life lies.
