Thai movie จระเข้ผีสิง was released in year 1993 and lasts 1h07mn. It is available under VCD format released by company Lepso and Yod Maa Nud Ltd. The image is colorful and sharp. It is typical Thai horror movie from decade 1990s featuring scary / comic sequences and targeted for provincial audience. Fx are poor due to small budget. The original 35mm movie picture in 16:9 is cut on each side to fit TV format 4:3. Not sure why the movie is so short (1h07mn), maybe the VCD company wanted to save money and released it on one VCD disc only, maybe some parts were censored (love scenes...). An old man called Lek is killed by a crocodile while trying to fish at nighttime. Young beautiful lady Chaoba (แม่คนสวย) is harassed by three villagers but gets rid of them. Chook (Bin Banleurit) writes a love letter to Chaoba but he is using old style. He is planning to ask her hand to her parents. While she is bathing in the river, she is attacked by the crocodile. Chook meets her father Prachot (Mum Jokmok) but she has disappeared. Chook believes she rejects his request for wedding. Local village headman (พี่ผู้ใหญ่) is requested for help. He decides to consult a local master (อาจารย์). The master identifies that Chaoba is dead and that a danger in the river is threatening the whole village. Meanwhile villagers organize a boat race. The crocodile (ไอ้เข้) disrupts the race. Chook has serious arguments with some villagers claiming he just loses the race and invents the crocodile story as a pretext. The master requests 3 days to prepare special weapon to kill the crocodile. During a dream, Chaoba ghost is back and tells Chook to beware some villagers wishing to kill him. Chaoba’s spirit (วิญญาณ) helps to chase away ruffians trying to kill Chook. The master tries to neutralize the crocodile, which rejects Chaoba from his body. Chook has to put a thread around her neck. The spirit is captured into a earthen pot. This part reminds of movie Mae Nak Pra Khanong (แม่นาคพระโขนง). The master gives holy weapons to Chook and his friend to get rid of the crocodile. The crocodile is defeated but the master also dies being killed by the crocodile spirit.
