This ghost loves to eat cordon umbilical and placenta from newborn babies (ผีกระสือจะมากินรกเด็ก). Villagers found many dead chicken in their farm. They were eaten by a Kraseu ghost. Villagers followed the floating ghost and hit it critically. A grandmother was in fact possessed by the ghost. Before dying, she gives a ring to her granddaughter, Bua Klee (บัวคลี่), and asks her not to burn her corpse (so opposite of Thai tradition เผาศพ). Bua Klee then becomes possessed by the Kraseu ghost (ถูกวิญญาญกระสือ). Boon Muang (บุญเมือง) is her husband. Chat (ฉัตร), a local thug, still tries to seduce her. Phi Chood (จู๊ด), Boon Muang’s closest friend, and Boon Muang chase Chat away. Bua Klee is now pregnant. The Kraseu spirit is inside the ring and is hungry (ไปหากิน). Bua Klee goes outside to look for filthy food and is identified by a villager. She is named as Krasao Sao (กระสือสาว) as the ghost has a young and pretty face! A fight erupts between Chat and Boon Muang as all villagers claim she is a ghost (ผีกระสือ). Boon Muang refuses (ไม่เชื่อ) such allegations but the villagers push him to verify if his wife is a ghost. So he hits her with a stick to chase the ghost but nothing is happening except tears from Bua Klee. A local shaman (หมอผี) Pradit invokes a dead spirit (ผีโขมดพราย) to take revenge on Boon Muang and Bua klee. Yomatut, the hell guardian, comes to get his life as he is a nasty man (ลงนรก). Boon Muang decides to leave the village. They take refuge in a relative home, i.e. uncle Chaeng. Bua Klee meets another Kraseu old ghost in the village. Bua klee is delivering her baby in traditional Thai way by holding a rope attached to the ceiling. The Kraseu old ghost and its husband try to steal the baby. Boon Muang fends them off and hits back. The husband (ผีกะหังและกระสือแก่) dies and the Kraseu old ghost dies in the early sunshine. Boon Muang visits the subdistrict headman of Dong Dok Kaew area to bring him some gifts from uncle Chaeng. Madeua is the daughter of the subdistrict headman and is fond of Boon Muang. While accompanied by Madeua, Boon Muang is shot in the arm by Chat. Madeua is disappointed to learn Muang is already married. She used love potions trick to make him forget his wife and son (เสน่ห์ยาแฝด). Meanwhile Bua Klee wishes to get a treasure (สมบัติ) by seeing an ignis fatuus. When a flame is coming from the ground, it is a spirit haven according to traditional belief. She can get the treasure by showing her nudity! But finally needs to give the treasure back to the guardian as she still needs to pay for karma (กรรม). Boon Muang and Madeua marry. Following Bua Klee's request, Chaeng goes to the subdistrict headman home. The son Chiep is also coming with a sacred thread to recover his father. On the way Chaeng and Chief see each other without head! This is a bad omen indicating a forthcoming death! Uncle Chaeng has to shoot Madeua to protect Chiep. The subdistrict headman wishes to revenge his daughter. Uncle Chaeng and Chiep are shot dead during the fight. Chood is beaten by Chat. Bua Klee finds the uncle Chaeng and Chiep dead bodies. Both Chood and Boo Muang are captured by Chat and the subdistrict headman. Bua Klee interferes as a Kraseu ghost and causes the subdistrict headman and Chat to shoot each other. Boon Muang refuses to go back with Bua Klee as she is a Kraseu ghost. Following advice from an hermit, finally the body of the grandmother is burnt and Bua Klee becomes a normal being again. Kraseu Sao 35mm movie brought new Fx effects in 1971 such as double impression to show the spirit quitting the dead body. It took 3 to 4 months to be shot in the jungle. Thai Film Archives has still a 16mm copy as, in 1973, 16mm projectors were still popular in provinces.

Following huge success of movie “Mon Rak Luk Tung” (มนต์รักลูกทุ่ง) in 1970, many song movies were released to catch up with this trend. Such movies include songs, a bit of action, romance and humor.

Thai movie แก้วขนเหล็ก with Kanchit Kwanpracha and Petchara Chaowarat released in year 1971 was very popular and even earns more money than other 35mm movies. Anyway in 1972 most theaters in Bangkok shift to 35mm projectors. Due to provincial theaters (โรงหนังต่างจังหวัด), outdoor theaters (หนังเร่), "movies to sell drugs" (หนังขายยา) not using 35mm projectors as they were still expensive, 16mm copies have to be given to them. Sombat Methanee is Waiwai, working as forest guard. Pawana Chanajit is SaenGneun.

Sawin is back from Bangkok with a man and they do visit a cemetery with a spirit doctor (หมอผี). It is a fiasco. Meanwhile Kwanchai and his friends also hire a spirit doctor. As Petchara ghost refuses to be born again, it is imprisoned in an earth clay pot. Many spirit doctors (หมอผีแขก, หมอผีจีน, หมอผีไทย) intervene but fail to control the ghost. Following all the deaths, Kwanchai agrees to go with Petchara ghost to stop the killings. He gets estranged and both go to hell judgment. The hell king refuses to accept Kwanchai as it is not his time to die yet. Before leaving, the Hell King shows him around. It features two songs in the Hell Kingdom. Through a touching song, Petchara tries to convince the Hell guardian but to no avail. Finally Kwanchai is sent back to earth but all his friends believe he is a ghost too!

ลำพู is a Thai movie released in year 1970. 1h23mn is left so only three reels. Normally movies in decade 1960s~1970s often last two hours minimum. The picture is still colorful. The reels left are in 16mm format so the movie is mute as such format requires dubbing. Famous director Cherd Songsri is behind the camera. The below summary is based on understanding as there is no sound available. Choomporn (Choomporn Theppitak) and two young ladies, including Prim, have arguments in the market with local sellers. Few comics make fun of them. Sawin (Sawin Sawangrat), influential local man, is linked to Choomporn. Choomporn sees the comics during a fair and chases one of them. Petchara (Petchara Chaowarat) is dancing and wearing a beautiful traditional costume during this fair. Prim (Prim Praphaporn) is jealous of Petchara as Sombat (Sombat Methanee) is in relationship with Petchara. A few Isan songs are featured as singer is using a Kaen (แคน). The movie quits the countryside to the seaside where Sombat and Petchara have fun singing, playing unreal music instruments and playing in the water. Prim have arguments with Petchara while she is keeping her suitcase following her trip to seaside. Prim and Petchara are sisters? While Petchara is sick following overwork, her friends take care of her. Sombat is back from abroad. Prim wishes to become the official fiancee and to replace Petchara in Sombat’s heart. She organizes Sombat’s kidnapping but it fails. She finally drugs him. Meanwhile Petchara is kidnapped by Choomporn and Sawin. A huge storm is coming. Awaken, Sombat pushes back Prim and rushes to look for Petchara. People like Sawin struggles to bring their wealth with them but finally dies in house explosion following their greedy attitude. This movie is certainly one of the first Thai catastrophe movies. The movie includes real footage of a storm, i.e. Talumphuk storm in Nakhon Sri Thammarat on 27 october 1962. The severe storm called Talumphuk (ตะลุมพุก) devastated Pak Phanang coast and Talumphuk cape. It killed 769 inhabitants. Petchara falls from a passerelle during the storm. Sombat falls also during the storm. After the storm, many corpses can be seen. Sombat is looking for Petchara anxiously. She cannot be found. Petchara's friend blames Sombat. She is finally rescued by the hospital but her face is disfigured to the big delight of Prim. Petchara thinks about suicide but her mother prevents her. Sombat is still looking for Petchara despite her parents saying she has disappeared. Recognizing her clothes on a clothesline, he knows she is hiding in her parents’ home. She refuses Sombat's love as she is now ugly. Sombat promises to take care and to pay for hospital bills regarding facial surgery. Prim hires Choomporn, promising sweet rewards, to pour acid on Petchara’s face while she is recovering at hospital. He does so but does it on the wrong person! At a big party, Sombat is accompanied by Petchara back to her full beauty causing Prim’s wrath. The movie stops here.

ไทยน้อย is a Thai movie directed by Dokdin Kanyaman and released in year 1969. A 4mn30 mute trailer, shot in 16mm format, is still remaining. Another sequence of 3mn30 can be found on internet also. So parts of the original movie seem to be still available. Sombat Methanee and Petchara Chaowarat are the main actors in this movie.

As usual, Dokdin’s movie features songs and beautiful ladies (Chadaporn Wachirapranee and a veteran sexy actress mixed Thai and foreigner - ลูกครึ่ง). A bit of action is present with a few fist fights involving Sombat Methanee. Sombat and Chana Sriubon also cross swords. Movie ไทยน้อย (Thai Noi) was released in 1969 and movie ไทยใหญ่ (Thai Jai) was released in 1970. Sombat and Petchara are wearing prince / princess clothes in both movies. Despite information is lacking on movie ไทยน้อย (Thai Noi), it is guessed that both movies ไทยน้อย (Thai Noi) and ไทยใหญ่ (Thai Jai) are linked together. Thanks to her unique sweet eyes and face, Thai people loved actress Petchara Chaowarat so much. She got nickname as นางเอกนัยน์ตาหยาดน้ำผึ้ง (honey eyes) or เพชรน้ำหนึ่งราชินีจอเงิน. The other 3mn30s sequence is still colorful and quite sharp. Petchara is selling fruits in a train station and sells to customers in the train when it halts temporary in the station. Petchara plays two roles in the movie. Orasa kidnaps the fruit vendor for Petchara to replace her. Certainly she is chased by some ruffians.

During World War 2, a man betrays his country (ขายชาติ) and even kills his wife Narinee as she refuses to keep silent. The father then disappears. His own daughter flees and is rescued by a young man called Boripat, who put her in a well off family. She is renamed Lamphap. A few years have passed. Lamphap (Suthisa Putnuch) is a beautiful grown up lady. Boripat plans to become deputy (ผู้แทน) in Phatalung province. Boripat and Lamphap love each other. Cheutchalao (Kaenjai Meenakanit), a jealous lady who wishes to marry Boripat, shows to Boripat’s mother a picture of Lamphap’s mother. Is it good that Boripat as a future deputy marry a country traitor? Following a night with Boripat, Lamphap flees away as she is ashamed of her background. Boripat looks for her. When he is aware of her parents’ background, he breaks up with her and finally marries Cheutchalao. Lamphap is followed by her father's bad reputation. Boripat has become a member of parliament. Cheutchalao introduces Khun Yousapong (Prachuap Ruekyamdee), who is a salesman, to Boripat. Boripat needs to pay back the funding he receives from him through some sales advantages with government projects. Boripat rejects and resigns as he refuses to betray his own principles. Cheutchalao is very upset as Yousapong is in fact her hidden lover. She even refuses to keep the child she is currently having with Boripat! Cheutchalao has an argument with Boripat’s mother causing her to fall from the stairs and dies. Boripat then indulged in alcohol and, being sick, decides to die in the place he met Lamphap the first time. He dies in her arms. Kenang is the child born of their brief union. Many years have passed. A young lady called Pen (Pawana Chanajit) stops by the village due to a flat tyre and is helped by Kenang (คนป้า). Pen is daughter of the salesman Yousapong. Salesman is still with stepmother (แม่เลี้ยง) Cheutchalao. Yousapong has always been concerned about money only (ไม่รู้ค่าความรัก). Pen dances on a show and displays her great dancing performing skills (รำไทย) to pay back his father as studies compensation. She gets a reward and wishes to offer it to Lamphap but Cheutchalao prevents her to do it as Lamphap is daughter of a country traitor (เป็นกรรม). Chatkalin, Lamphap’s second son (Choomporn Theppitak) doesn't want anybody to mention he is Lamhap's son anymore as he wished to marry Pen. He is in fact Boripat and Cheutchalao's son. Cheutchalao left the child in an orphanage and Lamphap, having pity, raised him. Well off people (ผู้ดี), having status, are seeing down poor people. As a revenge Kenang kidnaps Pen and brings her to a remote place near seaside. Chatkalin burns Lamphap's house as retaliation. Kenang, having finally freed Pen, arrives on time to save his mother. Following a fight with Chatkalin, a passer-by is shot. They all accuse Kenang. Lamphap chases everybody. A policeman offers her an opportunity to clean her name but she has to give information regarding the secret place where her traitor father and his team are hiding. After reaching the place in the mountain, Lamphap’s father wished to test her if she is not a spy. She shall kill her own son, Kenang, as he has been accused by Cheutchalao, Chatkalin and Yousapong of having killed the father’s own son, i.e. the passer-by. Only Pen defends Kenang. Lamphap has to do a sacrifice (เสียสละ), i.e. Kenang’s life against the four other lives (Cheutchalao, Chatkalin, Yousapong, Pen). Finally one of the ruffians revolts for the sake of his country preventing Lamphap to make an impossible choice. Bad characters are punished. Some episodes were cut in this Lepso VCD release, i.e. one episode where Sombat Methanee is singing and another climax episode when the ruffian forces the mother (Suthisa Putnuch) to shoot her own son (Sombat Methanee) but finally changes his mind. Sombat Methanee plays both the father Boripat and the son Kenang. This 1960s movie shows that faithfulness to country is more important that faithfulness to own family. It is typical of many 1960-1970s movies, which featured nationalist elements against the red communist threat. พญาโศก is a less known good movie from famous director Cherd Songsri. It also includes many references to the Thai royalty.

Montree and Chat are captured while trying to catch the killers. Hopefully a mysterious masked heroine frees them on time and gives them the address of a storage place containing heroine. Thiem asks Sing to get back an important letter. He goes there as Insee Daeng and succeeds thanks again to the help of the mysterious masked heroine. Thiem is pleased with Sing and would like him to join (สมาชิก) the mysterious organisation (ชาติชั่ว) called “Dead demon” (ภูตมรณะ). Sing meets Kanda (Preeya Roongrueng), a dangerous beautiful sexy lady working for Thiem. Oh Oh is the big boss but nobody ever saw his face. While visiting ‘Blue Birds’ bar, the two policemen are captured again. Chat shall be drown slowly and Montree’s death shall be disguised as an accidental fall from a building. Hopefully Insee Daeng can help them on time as Sing is now member of the organisation. Finally internal conflicts cause the failure of the organisation. Kanda surrenders to the Police and gives them the address of the hidden lair. The movie ends with various gun fights involving Montree, Chat, Insee Daeng and the ruffians. Oh Oh, who is in fact Chamanchai Suk, is also shot. The mysterious masked heroine is Wassana. The police failed once again to catch Insee Daeng. The movie (Lepso Studio VCD version) has a damaged picture with lack of colors but the Phanmitr DVD version has been remastered so offering a very good quality. It reminds of 1960s decade movies involving mysterious organizations such as James Bond movies with Sean Connery or Fantômas with Jean Marais. There is a very good performance from Mitr Chaibancha as he is playing three roles (Rom, Insee Daeng and Sing). It is a long movie, i.e. around 2h20.

ปูจ๋า or Pu Ja is a 1967 Thai movie directed by Dokdin Kanyaman. 47 minutes only are left. Normally Thai 16mm movies from decade 1960s used to be made of 4 to 5 reels. One reel lasts around 40 minutes. There is no sound available for this movie as 16mm movies are always dubbed. So understanding the whole movie is quite difficult. Petchara Chaowarat (ปู) is a young lady. Her close friends are Dokdin Kanyaman and Orasa Isarangkul. Sawin Sawangrat, Petchara’s father, is a fisherman. Petchara and Dokdin are caught in a military exercise including a beach landing. They meet Mitr Chaibancha, who is an officer. Petchara and Mitr appreciate each other. Mitr rescues a young lady who is about to be drowned. Later on Mitr and his friend Adul mingle (จู๋จี๋) with those two ladies (Chadaporn Wachirapranee and another veteran actress). Petchara, aware of this, is disappointed by Mitr. Petchara’s blind grandmother is played by veteran actress Malee Wetpraseri. It is Petchara’s birthday. Adul changes the content of a gift offered by Mitr. It is a trick to spoil love between Mitr and Petchara as it starts to emerge. He then offers a proper gift to Petchara. Sawin prevents both of them to fight and asks Petchara to go back home. It seems that Chadaporn is unhappy with Sawin and asks him to push Petchara away from Mitr. Following a fishing trip, Sawin falls in the sea during a storm. Petchara and Dokdin need to find a job and then work as coolie in a construction site. Police officer Adul looks for them as it is found that Petchara is a descendant of a rich family. Sawin isn't dead. it seems he will cause issue to Petchara but love with Mitr will of course succeed. In this 1967 period, Petchara Chaowarat had short haircut. As usual with Dokdin Kanyaman’s movies, there is humour, action, romance and good feelings (happy ending).

This movie is about Bang Rajan village. This village is located north of Ayutthaya, the old capital of Siam, predecessor state to modern Thailand. The village played a famous role related to its resistance against the Burmese in the war that saw the destruction of Ayutthaya city in 1767. Tap is a Siamese soldier leader. Siamese people have internal conflicts while they are also fighting with Burma (พม่า). Siamese soldiers kidnap two ladies, who are Tap's sister and Tap's fiancee. They are raped. Tap has the difficult task to choose between rescuing his sister and fiancee or leading the villagers far from Burmese soliders. They take refuge inside Bang rajan village. They help and support each other. Siamese from various villages lure a group of Burmese soldiers with the promise of young women and then turn upon them and kill the whole group. This event leads the whole Burmese army to Bang Rajan. Tap, after taking care of the villagers, goes to rescue his sister and fiancee. His fiancee is soiled (ตัวเสีย) so they cannot come back together. Tap forgives to the Siamese men as they promise to take care of the young ladies so they join his group in Bang Rajan. Burmese army starts to assault Bang Rajan. Burmese has guns but Siamese people have only swords. Women are fighting also. It is the duty for men to become soldier and protect the nation. Burmese come with elephants and big guns. Siamese people needs a big gun to fight back Burmese army. Ayutthaya king refuses to give them a big gun as Bang Rajan is a small village only. Ayutthaya people donate utensils for Bang Rajan to mold a big gun but it is fissured during moulding. Siamese are disadvantaged by their lack of firearms. As Burmese do not succeed to enter inside Bang Rajan with their infantry, they build forts surrounding the village. Siamese soldiers cannot destroy the forts built by the Burmese and suffered casualties from infantry assaults upon those forts. One of the Siamese leaders becomes drunk and furious. Upon a water buffalo, he takes a few men and attacked the Burmese. This event remains a forever legend and has been reused on poster of the 2000s Bang Rajan movie. He was killed and his men routed. Tap and his men succeed to neutralize the big gun before it destroys Bang Rajan walls. But they fail when Burmese use weapons similar to Katyusha multiple rocket launchers. Villagers are outnumbered and killed. Bang Rajan villagers and soldiers sacrifice their life for the nation. Tap and his new girlfriend are the only one to survive. They are rescued by future King Taksin, who liberated Siam from Burmese occupation after Ayutthaya fall in 1767. Such movies were very popular during nationalist era of Thailand, i.e. 1960s with communist threat risk and the 2000s folliwing the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis. This movie highlights the sacrifice of villagers not supported by the official administrators. Sombat Methanee got a gold statuette award (รางวัลตุ๊กตาทอง) received from HM the King for his best actor work. In 1966 the government renovated Bang Rachan camp (ค่ายบางระจัน).
