Sick Nurses, The Unborn Child, Laddaland and 4bia

So I recently had a moment of torrenting madness and downloaded a tonne of Thai horror films...

Sick Nurses (Suay Laak Sai) 

Fear Factor ★★☆☆☆
Gore Factor★★★★☆
WTF Factor★★★★☆
Pointless Factor☆☆☆☆☆
Overall ★★★☆☆
Slightly over the top and a little bit too much blood, but it had a fair twist at the end, the best of a bad bunch I'd say. 

The Unborn Child (Sop Dek) 

Fear Factor ★★☆☆☆
Gore Factor★☆☆☆☆
WTF Factor★☆☆☆☆
Pointless Factor☆☆☆☆☆
Several pieces of bad CGI aside, not a bad film. Not THE BEST, but passable. 

Laddaland (Soi-lat-daa-laen) 

Fear Factor☆☆☆☆☆
Gore Factor★★☆☆☆
WTF Factor★★☆☆☆
Pointless Factor★★★★★
A few mildly entertaining moments in an otherwise 'nothing to write home about' borefest. 

4bia (See Prang) 

Fear Factor★☆☆☆☆
Gore Factor★★★☆☆
WTF Factor★★★★☆
Pointless Factor★★★★★
Not one but four poorly crafted, pointless films with no real meat on the bones. 

Moral of the story?
Don't use up your asiatorrent download limits on Thai films. It looks like things have gone downhill since 'Shutter', and ithe market is certainly not up to Japanese and Korean standards yet.
