Dark Flight is a spine-chilling horror film released in 2012 that takes viewers on a terrifying and intense journey aboard a plane, as the passengers and crew face unthinkable horrors in the sky. The movie, directed by Issara Nadee, stars Marsha Wattanapanich as New, a flight attendant haunted by the traumatic memory of a crash, and Peter Knight as Captain Thana, the leader of the flight crew. Paramej Noiam plays a key role as Prat, a passenger with a hidden agenda.

The film kicks off with a flashback to New's earlier days as a flight attendant when she survives a plane crash that claims the lives of everyone else on board. Since then, she has been grappling with PTSD and can't help but be reminded of the incident with every single flight she's on. But despite her fear and anxiety, she boards her next flight, hoping to conquer her demons and put the past behind her.

As the flight takes off, things quickly turn stressful and bizarre. While the crew works to ensure that the trip is running smoothly, a series of unexplainable events begin to occur. There's the sudden and eerie appearance of a phantom little girl, strange noises coming from equipment in the cockpit, and a pilot who seems to be keeping a hush-hush conversation with someone on the other end of the line.

As the plane rises higher in the sky, the passengers and crew start to notice strange changes around them. The cabin begins to rattle violently, and the temperature drops incredibly low, causing everyone to shiver and huddle for warmth. The situation is made more terrifying when people start to disappear without leaving any trace, leaving the rest to wonder what's going on.

The tension builds throughout the flight, as the crew and passengers on the airplane face one horror after another. With the external forces beyond their control, they must figure out how to stay alive and get out of the plane alive. As they frantically try to solve the mystery and escape the clutches of an unknown, malevolent force that appears to have infiltrated the airplane, they must deal with their own internal demons to survive.

The movie is an atmospheric and suspenseful thriller that takes its time to create an ambiance of pure horror. The visual effects and sound effects are particularly impressive; adding suspense and drama to an already eerie situation. The use of practical effects and cinematography is also powerful in communicating a sense of helplessness and claustrophobia, making viewers feel like they are locked in the airplane cabin themselves.

In terms of acting, the cast of Dark Flight is convincing and realistic. Marsha Wattanapanich shines in her role as New, the traumatized flight attendant, bringing a sense of vulnerability and resilience to the screen. Peter Knight's portrayal of Captain Thana is also strong, as he shows the character's increasing desperation and frustration throughout the film.

The movie has a few minor weaknesses, such as the pacing, which can feel uneven at times, and the character development, which may be lacking for some viewers. However, these do not take away from the overall suspenseful and terrifying experience that the movie offers.

In conclusion, Dark Flight is a must-watch for fans of horror movies. The film's claustrophobic setting, creepy ambiance, and nerve-wracking storyline make it a standout in the genre. It does justice to the horror elements and plays with viewers' fears, making us feel like we are watching a real-life horror movie. Overall, Dark Flight is an excellent addition to any horror movie collection.
