Did you know that Southeast Asia is home to⁤ some of the largest venomous centipedes in the world? These creatures with ⁣a‍ hundred legs can reach lengths exceeding six ⁤inches,⁢ setting the stage‌ for a chilling narrative.

In the⁢ horror film CREEPY CRAWLY (also known as THE ONE HUNDRED), directors Pakphum Wongjinda & Chalit​ Krileadmongkon, along with Charoen Kathitisuwan, draw inspiration from the menacing deity ​Tabonglung, a monstrous centipede that takes over human bodies.

The ‍story kicks off with a young​ vlogger, Kat, venturing into the forest in a quaint⁤ Thai‌ town during a COVID lockdown in March 2020. ⁤A group of individuals arrives at the Srichanpen ‌Hotel ‌for a mandatory two-week quarantine, unknowingly stepping into ‌a nightmare that unfolds ​within the first ​day.

We are introduced to key characters like Tevika ‌”Fame” Marley,‌ a journalist investigating the hotel with her brother Fiew, and Leo ⁣and Lena, siblings harboring resentful feelings towards their father. The hotel’s proprietor, Prawit, exudes a shady ⁢vibe while the newest staff ‍member, ​Kat, unwittingly brings an ominous presence within the hotel’s walls.

With centipedes‌ serving as harbingers of doom in the story, the film strategically places them throughout, evoking a sense⁢ of unease matched by the eerie hotel design. The depiction of Tabonglung mirrors the macabre creations from iconic⁣ horror movies like THE‍ THING.

Amidst the backdrop of a⁢ pandemic, ‌the characters’ use of protective masks is touched‍ upon, though eventually discarded to reveal​ their emotions as events escalate. The narrative skillfully weaves suspense through the mystery of‍ possession, delivering genuine⁤ scares and emotional depth through family dynamics and heart-wrenching moments.

The cast delivers solid performances, with Mike‌ Angelo navigating⁣ his⁤ character’s complexities with agility, portraying a neurochemical imbalance that⁤ leads to sudden outbursts.

While some questions remain unanswered, CREEPY CRAWLY​ offers a satisfying blend of monster horror set⁤ in Thailand, with a language mix of Thai and⁢ sign language, accompanied by English subtitles.
