Directed by Tran Huu Tan (Survive (Ta Nang – Phan Dung); Home Sweet Home). Produced by Nguyen Pham Hoang Quan.
The movie stars Thanh Truc Huynh, Lê Bê La, Can Mac, Ngoc Hiep Nguyen, Kha Nhu Kha Nhu, Tran Phong, Xuan Phuc, Trinh Tai, Huu Tien and Van Trang.
The film’s VFX was handled by Bad Clay Studio, a Ho Chi Minh-based company headed by French-Vietnamese Thierry Nguyen, whose credits include X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Mad Max: Fury Road and Pokémon Detective Pikachu.
There are three chapters: an actress seeking everlasting beauty; a magician who makes a deal with evil; and a psychic seeking the remains of a deceased girl.
“The plot of Ghost Story Near Home has the advantage of exploiting urban legends, which are familiar ghost stories of the people, so they create a closeness but obsession. But that’s also why the plot is a bit simple […] Fortunately, the film only has three stories and is quite short, so watching it is not boring.” Anchoi [translated from Vietnamese]
In Vietnam, the movie was released on February 11, 2022, and was a massive hit. Vietnamese Horror Story is now available on the Screambox streaming platform in the US.
