Hashima Island is famous for inspiring the villain’s lair in 007 movie Skyfall (2012). It’s surprising that it toke this long for someone to film a horror movie in this creepy deserted island. The Thai movie Project Hashima (Blu-ray release 2014-10-9) tells the story of a team being hired to go there to make a video documentary.
Unfortunately the movie is only average. I believe its frequency of scare is well below Thai horror movie average. In spite of the title, there is only a limited amount of screen time for this island. Worse yet, the island is not put to good use in the screenplay. Only a few scares occur in the island. The only real scare is a natural disaster instead of a haunting. The background of the ghost is generic and location-independent, instead of being inspired from the history of this island. I hope that some day someone else can make a better use of this ideal location to make a better horror movie.
