One year after streaming giant Netflix announced its first original Thai-language series, the teen supernatural drama has gotten a premiere date.
The Stranded, or Kweng in Thai, a sci-fi thriller that follows dozens of high school students trapped on a remote island following a tsunami, will become available Nov. 15 on the streaming platform.
In its trailer, the plot of the seven-episode series thickens with a number of strange events (with Thai touches) as everyone struggles to survive. It definitely has a Lord of the Flies vibe.
The movie is by horror flick filmmaker Sophon Sakdaphisit, who directed 2011’s Ladda Land, based on a haunted Chiang Mai house, and wrote the screenplay for 2004’s acclaimed Shutter, a film about spirit photography.
