Promises in the Dark

I was watching a DVD of a film I decided was really not worth writing about. Then I checked the extras. Among the previews was this subtitled trailer for Sars Wars, one of my favorite Thai movies. I've seen the film a few times, but never the trailer until now. As far as I'm concerned, this may be the best trailer ever, next to Orson Welles introducing something called Citizen Kane. Taweewat Wantha's film has killer zombies, a giant snake, Thai cinema's axiom - Somlek Sakdikul, and Lena Christensen as Dr. Diana. The trailer also features an honesty unmatched by most Hollywood films.
