Inspired by a true Thai ritual of lying in coffins to get rid of bad luck and prolong life, The Coffin is a supernatural thriller about a young man and a young woman who decide to go through the ritual in Thailand.
Chris (Ananda Everingham), a claustrophobic architect, does it in the hope of saving his girlfriend from a lethal brain tumor. Sue (Karen Mok), a nutritionist visiting Thailand from Hong Kong, does it to save her own life after being diagnosed with terminal lung cancer - one week before her wedding.
After the ritual, Chris and Sue experience what appear to be miracles in their respective lives. But soon, they find themselves confronted by a series of bizarre and terrifying incidents. With the help of a professor specializing in paranormal cases associated with the ritual, they set out to exorcise the ghosts that haunt them, and attempt to reverse the wheel of karma.
Thrilling, mysterious and ultimately moving, The Coffin is a spine-chilling horror about the beauty of life and death, and coming to face to face with living and dying.
