กระสือสาว is a Thai movie about a traditional folklore ghost called Kraseu (กระสือ). It is a filth- eating floating ghost with a head, a trailing heart and intestines. 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. Thai Film Archives got it from a donation from a company showing outdoor movies in villages (หนังขายยา). The movie is a bit similar to Nang Nak scenario. It is a Lost movie in Thailand but it was found in Sweden with an original picture, Thai sound and with Sweden subtitles. In 1970s decade a few Thai movie rights were sold in Scandinavia. This movie shows interesting traditional behaviors and patterns such as traditional baby delivery, staying above a hot pot after delivery (การอยู่ไฟ), 100 days ceremony after a relative death, vision of people without head indicating forthcoming death, hidden treasures kept by deity and signalled by an ignis fatuus, Kraseu ghost belief, love filters.

Celebration of the wedding day between Chan (Sahat Piempongsan), District Chief Officer (นายอำเภอ), and Konthong (Petchara Chaowarat) is ongoing but on nuptial night, the husband is drunk. Konthong is then kidnapped and transported on an elephant into the mountains. She is no idea why she has been kidnapped as her abductor refuses to disclose the truth (แล้วก็รู้เอง). The abductor is called Inton (Nard Poowanai). Aratae (Metta Roongrat) is taking care of Konthong (ผู้หญิงไทยดื้อ). Hillside villagers (คนดง, คนป่า) are very cheerful to Konthong. Inton is called father (พ่อ) as he takes care of the village. Chan is on the way to get back his wife using jeep to go through the mountains and being accompanied with a bunch of ruffians. The kidnapping is in fact Inton's revenge over Chan. Inton, Chan and Taptim were children who shared friendship during childhood. On Inton and Taptim's wedding day, Chan takes advantage that Inton is drunk to rape Taptim as he was jealous Taptim didn't marry him. Willing to kill Chan with a gun, Inton argues with Taptim and a lost bullet kills Taptim. Inton has to flee in the mountains. Inton finally doesn't rape Konthong (เห็นกับตาของจะเสียได้อย่างไร) as he has pity on her and proposes to send her back. How can Konthong go back? Who will believe she is still pure? She acknowledges she doesn't love Chan. So a romance starts between Inton and Konthong. One of the villagers, Tasuey, is chased by Inton from the village following a rape on a girl refusing to love him and her fiance’s murder. The stranded villager meets Chan and his ruffians. He decides to lead them to the village to take his revenge on Inton. The movie features alternate sequences of fun, romance and sequences of the ruffians approaching the mountain village.

Villagers refuse to disclose where Inton and Konthong are hiding. Chan uses persuasion to convince Aratae to tell the truth. If Chan gets back Konthong, his wife, then Aratae can get Inton, her secret love, back. Chan gets Aratae's virginity (ความสาว) as Inton gets his wife also. The ruffians chase Inton and Konthong inside the deep forest (ป่าลึก). As Konthong catches malaria and they run out of food, Inton has no other choice but surrender to Chan. Chan thinks of shooting Inton like a dog but finally changes his mind reminding their former friendship. He even forgives him (ให้อภัย) but Konthong shall stay with him. While Inton is going to the village with the mountain villagers, Konthong lies she is already pregnant so asks Chan to release her so her child can stay with her real father.

A Thai Chinese community is celebrating Chinese New Year (ตรุษจีน) though dances (รำ) and songs. Even Songthong is singing a few songs before being killed as suddenly the village is attacked. Hin is the leader of the pirates (โจร) who attack the village. Many villagers are captured or killed. Four children, two boys (Phet, Chiang Ho) and two girls (Kae, Lilin), promise to revenge their parents and punish Hin. The kids get separated. Fifteen years have passed. Seua and Kae love each other but their love is endangered as it is discovered Seua is Koeb's son. Koeb has cut Kae's mother arm during the village attack fifteen years ago. Their love becomes impossible. Back home Kae finds her mother dead. Chiang Ho and Lilin are back from China and ready for revenge. They meet Kae and look for Phet, the last friend. Phet has been raised by Hin and is called Praew. Hin, following the fall of Ayutthaya, has become lord of the province. The three friends attack directly Hin's fort but are defeated as Phet supports Hin, the pirate leader, and is now a traitor (ทรยศ). The two girls are captured as Seua also betrays Kae. Seua is the one who killed Kae's mother. Phet had to lie and simulates as he is an Ayuthaya soldier (งานของแผ่นดิน). He loves the king and the kingdom. Hin is making an alliance with Burma to sell canons (โจรขายชาติ). Phet's double game is disclosed. He is captured by Hin and his fingers are broken to prevent any fighting. Hopefully Chiang Ho can help and they flee from the fort. Lin takes care (รักษาพยาบาล) of Phet. They ask support from their old teacher but he refuses to believe that Hin is a traitor. Finally faced to the truth he decides to help. Surpassing the pain, Phet fights for the kingdom (ช่วยแผ่นดิน). Elephants are used to defeat Hin’s soldiers. Despite being outnumbered, the fierce Siamese soldiers succeed to defeat the traitors and Burmese soldiers in order to save the King. Many sword fights and kung fu / Thai boxing fights typical from 1970s Hong Kong movies are featured. The King’s face cannot be seen but Thai royal music is played to indicate his presence. This movie is really typical from years 1970s when patriotic movies were shot due to the communist threats at the Thai borders. The movie features two Hong Kong movies stars. It takes two years to shoot the complete movie. It was an expensive movie to make as real soldiers were used, a fort has to be built along a mountain and then destroyed by explosives.

Main actress: Petchara Chaowarat,Prim Praphaporn

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.

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.

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!
