Thailand and their horror, yes, this deadly duo usually always managed to be the main attraction for Asian audiences, no matter if it is then lately some of them ended badly. This May, Pee Mak fever will come gripping the entire Kingdom of Nuffnang! (Okay, purely exaggeration) But yea, this will definitely whet your appetite for that age old Thai genre; the ghost comedy!
During the beginning of the Rattanakosin Dynasty, many Thai men were drafted to serve in the war. Pee Mak was no exception and had to leave his pregnant wife to join the flight. While at war, he met, saved and formed a close bond with four fellow soldiers. Once the war was over, Mak invited his four best friends to visit his hometown called Phra Khanong. when they arrived to the town, Mak introduced them to his beautiful wife Nak and Dang his newborn baby boy. Pee Mak’s four friends decided to stay in Phra Khanong for a while and moved into the old house opposite to Mak’s house. Despite having met Nak and Dang, a village rumour was going around that Nak had died giving birth to her stillborn baby, Dang…
The film was written by 3 men, the director who is responsible for the film Shutter and Phobia, actor ‘Ter’ Chantavit Dhanasevi, and ‘Aem’ Nontra Kumwong. It was revised several times to make it fresh and different from previous versions. Pee Mak is not only funny but with great relish invites audiences to play a guessing who’s actually a ghost.
As a horror comedy, arguably Pee Mak successfully carry out their duties properly. Filled with stupidity, foolishness plot and stale twist, the funny thing is still effective to provide an entertaining dish and a little scary dessert.
Everyone knows the story by heart. Set 100 or so years ago, long before the rustic river village of Phra Khanong became part of Bangkok and was paved over with condos, the young man Mak goes off to war, leaving behind his pregnant wife Nak. While Mak battles for his life in the trenches against whomever it was the Siamese were fighting back then, Nak struggles to give birth but both she and her baby die. However, the love between Mak and Nak is so strong, her spirit survives. When Mak returns home, he doesn’t see that anything is wrong even though the villagers are all in hiding, cowering in fear of the powerful ghost.
