A mysterious man then appears on the rock. He is a great fighter. His name is Phi Seua. There is a belief that he is the one depicted on old drawings inside a local cave. The deity guardian mentions that Phi Seua is coming here to help Hua Jayae. In fact, Phi Seua accepts gold from both parties. Phi Seua meets Mai Tho, young lady, who is part of a Padaung giraffe women village. As she is assaulted by Thao Lai Kan's ruffians, Phi Seua helps her. As he protects the Padaung village, he is now hunted by the two groups. Phi Seua then faces various criminals, i.e. the hell twins (แฝดนรก) played by the real Banleurit twins, seven brothers with a face similar to famous actor Sangthong Sreesai (สังข์ทอง สีใส), a big and fat ruffian commanding a Godzilla monster. Phi Seua then becomes the Padaung villager's trainer. Phi Seua leaves the Padaung giraffe women village, which is then attacked. Mai Tho is kidnaped so Phi Seua has to come back to help and defeat the bad guys. This movie is similar to a Manga story. It mixes comedy and action.

Two young soldiers find a decomposed body in a bag floating on the river. They decide to bury it. A spirit exits from the tomb and transforms itself into a beautiful lady called Nuan (Trirak Rakkarndee). Nuan is given refuge in the soldiers’ home as she claims she is on the way to Bangkok but it is already nighttime. Nuan loves immediately Cheut as he is kind hearted man. It generates jealousy from Khun, the subdistrict headman’s (กำนัน) daughter, as she also loves Cheut since a long time. The subdistrict headman Son likes Nuan a lot and invites her to stay in his home as it is more comfortable than Cheut's home. Other ladies having interest in the subdistrict headman in the village start to be jealous of this Bangkok girl! The subdistrict headman follows up Nuan at nighttime but then she becomes a ghost again. The two ladies Kamlai and Kamlong visit an expert into magic (อาจารย์) to get special oil (น้ำมันพราย) to make a love filter (ยาเสน่ห์) to try seduce easier the subdistrict headman. Meanwhile the village ruffians flee away when Nuan, beautiful lady, taking a bath, becomes a ghost! The other villagers tell Cheut that Nuan is a ghost. He flees from home and shelters at subdistrict headman’s home. They ask for a local shaman’s (หมอผี) help. Nuan decides to get her husband back. But he refuses to join her again. Nuan forces Cheut's friend to play the bait. Cheut goes back to her as he is under a spell. Finally Nuan is defeated by the shaman. Many couples can now have happiness and marry. As often during years 1988s-1993s, Ekapan Banleurit and Trirak Rakkarndee are playing the main couple in those cheap horror Thai movies. Same old tricks are used with ghostly skeletons and simple basic FX effects. Such movie includes more gags than real horror. It was targeted for rural audience and not Bangkokian audience. The scenario is very similar to Mae Nak (แม่นาค) traditional old story where the young man loves and lives with a ghost without knowing it (ผีหลอก!). This movie is released by Lepso Studio. Image and sound quality are quite poor. Once again the title is wrong. It is named “ล้างเผ่าพันธุ์โคตรผีปอบ” (Holocaust of the ogre clan) but there is not a single ogre (ผีปอบ) in the movie. The VCD cover belongs to another movie called “ปีศาจแมงมุมสาว”. The real name of this movie seems to be "ต้นตระกูลปอบ".

The second opus of บ้านผีปอบ continues with the same characters. The hunter is killed. New murders happen and intestines are always missing inside the bodies. Those murders are done by the village head's daughter, Kradeung (กระดึง), who is possessed by a "Phi Pop" (ผีปอบ) spirit. It takes appereance of Pla Pleung to accuse her. A second "Phi Pop" spirit is also hanging around. It has the apperance of a middle age woman, Ya Yip (หยิบ). The two "Phi Pop" are fighting together over the village territory possession. Villagers now know that Kradeung is a "Phi Pop". They organize a "Phi Pop" hunt that turns to a fiasco. A powerful sorcerer (หมอผี) comes to the village. It gets rid of Ya Yip "Phi Pop" first but fails with Kradeung. Finally the doctor Ret and Pla Pleung succeed to remove the "Phi Pop" ghost from Kradeung body but the second "Phi Pop" is still hanging around... Same as the first opus, this movie mixes horror, comic and a few salacious jokes in a rural context. "Phi Pop" is a traditional ghost in villages so many gags are based on rural life, i.e. men drinking together at night time and believing ghost visions are due to alcohol, woman wearing a tight traditional sarong (ผ้าถุง) and bathing in a pond with male villagers dreaming the sarong will slip down, classic gag when actors chased by a ghost enter water jars and exit from other jars... There are always comic pursuits between ghost and actors in accelerated motion. This opus contains bad cuts or maybe some censure. The first opus was shot in 7 days but the further opus were shot within 10 to 20 days.

Same actors from "Baan Phi Pop 1 and 2" are playing in this Phi Pop movie. Rich trader people (คนเศรษฐี) want to buy land from grant-mother Chom but she refuses. She is living with her daughter Kaew (Trirak Rakkarndee). Ruffians are sent to expel them but they are killed by the grant-mother Chom, who is a "Phi Pop" ghost. Many deaths happen in the village due to the presence of a "Phi Pop" ghost. Villagers are fed up and decide to use a sorcerer (หมอผี) to exorcise the village. The grant-mother Chom is defeated by the sorcerer and dies. Before dying, the "Phi Pop" spirit is transferred from the grant-mother to Kaew. Phalat (Ekapan Banleurit), the new village headman (กำนัน), promises to take care of Kaew. The rich trader tries to abuse Kaew but he gets killed by the "Phi Pop" ghost also. The son of the rich family has a poor girlfriend, Plaew, from the village. She is now pregnant so the son forces her to abort and causes Plaew's death. Being pursued by villagers, the "Phi Pop" ghost transfers from Kaew to Plaew. Plaew kills her bad boyfriend. Phalat has difficulty to reason villagers wishing to exercise their law versus the official law. They use a sorcerer again but this time it fails. In a hurry ending, another master neutralizes the "Phi Pop", who transfers again to another lady from the village. This movie uses same recipe as "BAAN PHI POP" (บ้านผีปอบ) movie serie, i.e. a mix of horror, comedy, a tint of salacious jokes. It opposes the village world (Chinese rich trader unable to speak Thai properly, watching movie in temple...) versus the Bangkok world (stereotype and mannerism from ผู้ดีจากกรุงเทพ...). This B type movie uses strong side lights and smoke for night scary scenes. The poor editing jumps easily from the night scene to day scene in a same sequence.

A "Phi Pop" (ผีปอบ) is an evil spirit believed to possess a person to eat his intestine while also forcing him to seek and consume raw animal organs and meat at night-time. A birth happens in a village. Umbilical cord needs to be buried as "Phi Pop" ghost loves such fresh bloody food. The man, who was supposed to perform this task, is found dead. Villagers suspect a "Phi Pop" is responsible of the murder and they believe a "Phi Pop" is living inside the body of an old grandmother. The grandmother, called Thongkam (ทองคำ), is cured and helped by a young woman called Pla Pleung. Some medical students drop by villages and provide free caring for villagers. Khun Ret is the chief doctor. One night, while camping, they are attacked by the grandmother "Phi Pop". They are saved by Pla Pleung. The village head brings a sorcerer (หมอผี) to exorcise the grandmother. He hits her with a stick. Confrontation between the sorcerer and docter Ret happens. The sorcerer retreats. The same night the sorcerer is killed by the "Phi Pop". The village head's daughter has strong interest into doctor Ret and is jealous regarding other women being close to him, i.e. Pla Pleung and Ret's assistant. A hunter arrives in the village to get rid of "Phi Pop". Things get out of control as the villagers don't listen to doctor Ret anymore. Pla Pleung and the grandmother has to flee. The village head's daughter kills Ret's assistant as no ladies shall be between her and doctor Ret. The grandmother sees this and transfers her saliva to the village head's daughter, who now becomes a "Phi Pop". The grandmother dies but a new "Phi Pop" is now in the village and nobody knows it yet... This first opus includes a small budget (400 000 Baht), a mix of light horror, comedy and tint of erotism. The movie was shot in 7 days. Characters are similar to traditional theatre "Like" (ลิเก), i.e. the leading actor (พระเอก), the leading actress (นางเอก), the jealous girl (นางเอก), the funny and hilarious friends (ตัวตลก). There are always comic pursuits between ghost and actors in accelerated motion. This horror movie is dedicated for countryside spectators with a story happening in rural village. Bangkokian people are seen as outsiders and are not trust. They are well known to have seduce girls then dropped them. Pla Pleung had some concerns on doctor Ret. "Baan Phi Pop 1" was even shot in 16mm format so reduce the costs. Dubbing was done later in studio.
