The spirits have invited Dracula (ผีฝรั่ง) for a meeting in Thailand to discuss about issues they are facing (overpopulation in cemetery, people doing less donations to spirits...). The two fathers want CheunKlan and Sae (ลูกไม่รักดี) to get engaged. Dracula (Lor Tok) wants to discover Thailand (spicy food and disco). Dracula meets Oum (Wiyada Umarin), a young lady just dropped by her boyfriend. Sae simulates to be possessed (ผีเข้า) but both fathers hire a spirit doctor (หมอผี) to chase the spirit. Sae finally passed away (สิ้นใจ). To help Klom, the two ghosts prepare a plan, one is going to see the hell guardian (Sithao Petcharoen) to ask for clemency and one is possessing the body to prevent decay (เน่าเปื่อย).

Lor Tok plays a dishonest sorcerer master again asking his acolytes to wear fake ghosts clothes but of course real Mae Nak ghost is coming and all flee. Mak is back home. While preparing food for Mak, a lemon falls on below floor. Mak sees Nak's arm streching out to get the lemon. His child has a demon face. The food is only made of salted fish (ปลาร้า). As he just drank alcohol, he believes his vision is altered. During night time, Nak takes appereance of an ugly ghost again. Mak flees to Tit Man's house. Tit Man confirms that Nak is now a ghost (วิญญาณแรง). Nak is unhappy with Mak's friends as she sees them as a hindrance to her love. A new master helps to neutralize Nak. She refuses to die and birth again (วิญญาณเกิดใหม่) because she loves Mak so much. Love is not possible between ghost and human. In this Mae Nak version, the master succeeds to neutralize Mae Nak and have her spirit emprisonned in an earthen jar closed by a sacred cloth. In other versions, only a Buddhist monk can stop Mae Nak as masters are always useless charlatans. Mae Nak Prakanong (1959) starred sexy actress Preeya Rungruang, while the more recent Nang Nak (1999) featured the actress Intira Jaroenpura, thus shifting the image of female ghosts to a more realistic and humanistic one. It is a typical 1960s movie with dog howling, sorcerer (หมอผี) used, rural background. The picture is decolored and as it is a former 16mm movie, it features a dubbed soundtrack.
