Nuffnang Premiere Screening – Mae Nak

Like many of us, we are often exposed to horror films but have you seen the film about the kids who fall foul of a female ghost with long, straight dark hair? Of course we are sure you Nuffnangers have, many times since Hideo Nakata’s Ring first introduced this sub-genre of Asian horror to us…but wait, this one is slightly different. Essentially a love story, you should take a stab at this upcoming Nuffnang Premiere Screening of Mae Nak this July!

Mae Nak is a well-known love ghost story based on true love between Nak and Mak that happened 100 years ago in Thailand. It is a story about a soldier, Mak, who has left his pregnant wife at home, spending years in battle.

Mae Nak (Mae, the archaic form commonly used before a women’s name in old days) lived on the bank of the Prakanong River. At the end of the war he returned home where his house was deserted and ruined. But he saw it as it had been, and his wife Mae Nak and son as they were before he went away. However, once her husband discovered that she was a ghost, he fled to the temple. Mae Nak was furious and began terrorizing people in the village. The whole community was terrified. Villagers decided to dig up Nak’s body and cremated her as according to Buddhist religion so her spirit would rest in peace. But Nak’s ghost refused to go with the love she still had for her husband. Finally they had to bring in a monk to ask Nak’s spirit to go to glory.

Highly recommended for those who enjoy these kinds of films or who have an interest in the film, while those who aren’t should heed caution. The fact that the ghost is actually really creepy as well is a nice plus, as the scenes of it score really high. It’s a disturbing, creepy appearance and really gets some added creepiness from these scenes.
