She then receives an SMS from a stranger, who persists in sending her messages even though she at first ignores them. Lonely, she gives in to temptation and strikes up an SMS chat session with the person, who turns out to be a guy and also the one that she will be regret it after finding out who he is. The story begins to getting up its tense as the identity of the mysterious one is slowly revealed through a series of increasingly intimidating messages. “Loneliness” is somewhat success to pulling off a grand experiment that serves as a great beginning to the foursome of fear.

Some of the boys then bundle the kid and his bicycle into the back of their pickup and beat on him while they are going down the road. The violence escalates with horrible consequences. Only one of the kids, one of the two girls (Apinya Sakuljaroensuk), voices any concern. Then what turns out is, that the little kid who wants to take revenge on them is into black magic, and he has a cursed manuscript -- a diploma of death that if people read them, they will meet whatever grisly end is spelled out for them.

The Middle Man (by Banjong Pisanthanakun)
This is a tale of four best friends going camping in the remote jungle and they are bedded down for the night in their tent sharing ghost stories along the way.

He also decries the horror films that all have female ghost with long black hair. "Can't they do something new?" he asks. They also argue over who gets to sleep in the middle of the tent. They have scared one another into believing that a ghost will haunt whoever sleeps on the end. To shut them up, the guy sleeping furthest away, Aye, says “If I die, I’ll come back and haunt who ever sleeps in the middle first.". The next day, while whitewater rafting, the boat overturns and Aye is the one who doesn't make it.

The royal house of Khurkistan requests that her body be sent back immediately for royal cremation. The airline schedules flight attendant Pim (Chermarn Boonyasak) for the flight, on which the only other passenger will be the corpse of the princess. This chapter presents the mixture of phobia.
