The Weird Villa is a 2004 Khmer psychological thriller that was advertised as being based on actual events which took place during the French colonial period of Cambodia's history. With a plot line steeped in psychological horror, the movie echos the styles and themes of numerous classic foreign thrillers such as the South Korean horror film A Tale of Two Sisters, a movie which features the appearance of a similar stepmother character. The film's setting also resembled the American-Spanish The Others (2001) in creating a haunted house atmosphere, although this setting is also one common feature of Khmer stories and movies. Some poltergeists and paranormal occurrences during the climax of the movie appear to be a nod to several scenes from M. Night Shyamalan's The Sixth Sense.
