A sequel, My Ex 2 :Haunted Lover, followed in 2010.
Ken is a young superstar and the dream date of every girl. While he can attract any woman he wants, every detail of his life ends up in gossip columns and tabloid magazines. His two previous girlfriends, high-society girl Meen and innocent college student Bow, have already been exposed in the media.
After dumping Meen, he is now dating actress Ploy and their every move is headline news. When news leaks that Ken will marry Ploy, the media goes into a frenzy and their dream life turns into a nightmare. It seems that someone is stalking them, day and night.
But is it an ex-girlfriend, an obsessed fan or a vengeful paparazzi? Nimit, Ken’s agent, encourages his client to take a break at a beach house at a report. The problem only escalates when people around Ken start to disappear one by one…
“It has some genuinely disturbing moments, with a haunting car-wash scene and a horrible bathing incident involving some blood and a lot of aggressive hair. Unfortunately the writing is not fantastic and the plot is a little meandering, with some confusing dream-sequences that might’ve been real and a ridiculous ending that isn’t as shocking as it thinks.” Gorepress
“A number of gory death sequences and goosebump-raising spook scenes manage to alleviate some of the dullness, but the story is never gripping nor scary enough to make it worth a recommendation. The cheap cinematography, too, is uninspired and the music intrusive.” Joel Harley, Starburst
