According to Variety, New indie distributor 24 frames has acquired North
American rights to Thai horror flick ALONE ("Faet") for its extreme label. Pic is
the second from co-directors Banjong Pisanthanakun and Parkpoom
Wongpoom, whose debut feature
SHUTTER was a left field hit in 2005 and
has been picked up for remake by Vertigo Entertainment and 20th Century
Fox. As part of its deal with producer GMM Tai Hub, 24 frames has also
acquired English-language remake rights to ALONE. The brilliant and terrifying
horror film "ALONE" tells the story of Pim who moved from Thailand to Korea
to escape the guilt of being the surviving half of a conjoined twin.

Flashbacks to Pim's childhood show how the bittersweet relationship with her
sister, and their commitment to stay together forever, transforms into a
repressive bond that ultimately leads to a separation. After she returns to
visit her dying mother, the spirit of her dead sister angrily thrusts herself into
Pim's life. 24 frames LLC is recently launched LA-based distributor focusing on
thriller and horror titles headed by former Buena Vista Home Entertainment
SVP Ludo Cremers. Sales and acquisitions for the firm are headed by another
Buena Vista Int'l alumnus Jesus De Sica. Company says it plans to launch
additional labels for the Latin and gay and lesbian market segments.
