THAI HORROR MOVIES

As belief in spirits ("PHI" - ผี) is present in everyday life (Buddha amulets, spirit doctors), it is not surprising that horror movies (หนังผี) are very popular in Thailand. There is an ongoing cultural relevance of the horror films in Thailand. Ghost movies have constantly enjoyed their popularity among the Thai movie going public. Thai horror movies themes are based on Thai old stories ("MAE NAK" ghost - แม่นาค), Thai old beliefs and folklore (ghosts or spirits such as "PHI KRASEU" - ผีกระสือ, "PHI TAI HONG" - ผีตายโหง, "PHI POP" - ผีปอบ, "NANG FA THANI" - นางฟ้าตานี...), ghost possession, love potions, black magic. The theme regarding the dead wife that becomes a ghost and refuses to leave her husband is often recurrent. In early ghost movies female ghosts emerge mostly. Many male ghosts, except "POO SOM FAO SAP" (ปู่โสมเฝ้าทรัพย์), were created from pure imagination, while most female ghosts are linked in folk tales dating many generations back. In Thai tradition, a ghost can be a protector and an antagonist. But women are generally chosen to be vengeful female ghosts to represent bad deeds and misconduct against social norms. The ghosts represent human maliciousness, so the spirits are a symbol of punishment to encourage people not to commit bad deeds.

They stay in a temple but the temple keeper asks them not to open door or windows at night time or go out if somebody calls them. Marut doesn't listen and sees a beautiful lady. In the morning one of the three students is found dead. There is two holes in the arm as if somebody sucked his blood (ผีดิบ). The next night sounds of a lady crying can be heard. Then in the morning the second friend is found dead also. According to the temple keeper, they die because of lying and unfaithful behavior with ladies. The temple keeper is a sorcerer (หมอผี) also. Marut meets Dao (Petchara Chaowarat), who is a ghost. A love story happens between human and ghost. Marut's mother wants to fiance him with a young lady called Buma (Preeya Roongrueng) coming from a rich family. The fiancee Buma is invasive and strongly encourages Marut to kiss her. Marut presents Dao, the ghost, to her mother, who faints when understanding that Dao is a ghost. Lor Tok plays an exorcist master (อาจารย์) again. The grandmother uses him to chase the ghost. Buma supports the idea. Marut wants to bring Dao back to life (เกิดใหม่) but other ghosts try to prevent this. Marut needs to pray every night one hour during 20 days, eat vegetarian (กินเจ), drop blood drops inside the food offered to Dao. Evil ghosts prevent Marut to free Dao but the temple keeper provides support. 20 days have passed. The temple keeper does a ceremony. Dao is now an human (เป็นคน). Issue with Buma arises. Following the kiss, she complains she is soiled (ตัวเสีย) as she wants to accelerate wedding date. The wedding happens but on the night before the wedding Dao becomes Marut's real wife. Buma wants to secure Marut's love by using magic spells so she contacts again the exorcist master. This one provides love filter (น้ำมันพราย). Buma wants to chase Dao. Marut accepts as Buma uses charm filter (ถูกเสน่ห์). Finally as Dao is pregnant with Marut and being already Marut's wife, Buma has to retreat and is finally arrested by police for colluding against Dao. This old movie has an image damaged but still colorful. It also has a new soundtrack as many 1960s movies were shot in 16mm without synchronised sound. It is a pleasure to watch Thai stars Chaiya Suriyun and legendary Petchara Chaowarat. Chaiya Suriyun received a Thai oscar (รางวัลตุ๊กตาทอง) for his best actor performance.

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.

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.

Kaew is a slave at the beginning of 20th century. He has an affair with Kalong, his master's daughter. They love each other and she becomes pregnant. Being aware of the situation, the master beats Kaew every day and Kalong is secretly hidden and kept by the master's servants. One of them, drunk, kills Kalong while she is giving birth. Kalong becomes a ghost and kills those who hinder her. Following the abolition of slavery by Rama V, Kaew quits his master's home and settles in another village where he meets a lady called Sonklin. Love goes beyond death and Kalong searches for Kaew. She finally finds Kaew and stays with him. Kaew ignores that his wife is a ghost. Finally Kalong is recognized as a ghost and wants to kill Sonklin and brings Kaew with her. A buddhist monk has to calm down Kalong so that she accepts her death and wishes to meet Kaew again in their next life. The scenario has many similarities with "MAE NAK" ghost (แม่นาค) story. Same as Mae Nak, there is art of compromise in film ending instead of one party winning. This is part of Thai culture. It is a remake of the movie shot in 1967 with legendary stars Mitr Chaibancha and Petchara Chaowarat.



Thai horror movies (หนังผี) includes a mix of comedy and horror. There are a very few scary sequences but a lot of repetitive sequences where a comic character group (ตัวตลก) trying to escape ghosts, running for their lives and failing to get rid of the spirits. Many Thai horror films in 1980s and 1990s decades have flimsy effects and facetious tone. Buddhist monks or "spirits doctors" ("MO PHI" - หมอผี) often help in order to get rid of powerful ghosts in Thai horror movies. In earlier Thai horror movies only a few monks were able to control and get rid of the evil spirits. Now ghosts have become smarter and Thai horror movies often feature exorcists, necromancers and religious men from other cults. These films show that these doctrines are just frauds but they also reflect the weakness in Buddhism.

A Thai husband called Sankap comes to rest with his wife Oon, a domestic helper and his teenage daughter, Kaew in a remote house. Ting is the mute (ใบ้) guardian of the old house. He is similar to a Quasimodo. Strange and scary noises can be heard at nighttime especially in the attic. Bones (ที่เก็บกระดูก) are found there. Kaew has her periods for the first time (เป็นสาวแล้ว). Through hidden passages in the house walls, the guardian spies the family. Through incantations, the guardian is calling an old spirit in front of a skeleton. The spirit needs a virgin (หญิงพรหมจารี) and pure blood. The spirit extends his life since more than 100 years thanks to virgin blood (บริสุทธิ์). Kaew is finally possessed (ถูกผีเข้า), speaks with a male voice and has extreme strength (แรงมาก). She tries to strangle the domestic helper. While the husband is out to get a doctor, Kaew continues her rampage towards her mother and the domestic helper. The mother and domestic helper are not strong enough face to a hell spirit (ผีนรก). The domestic helper is killed. The Thai husband arrives too late with a doctor. The doctor is even thrown out of the window and dies. Vichan (Porjed Kaenpetch), Sankap’s friend, visit them and is surprised to find the house very quiet and the two corpses. He has difficulties to believe in ghosts until the spirit wakes up. Vichan suspects the guardian so follows him up inside his hut. Oon suggests to call a shaman (หมอผี). The guardian is neither mute neither handicapped. Some zombie try to catch Vinchan. Meanwhile the spirit lies to Oon and convinces her to open the locked door. Fight happens between the spirit and Sankap. Despite cutting its arms and head, Sankap is overcome by the spirit. Sankap and Oon are killed. A purification fire started by Vichan burns the skeleton and wax effigies. Spirits are defeated. Vichan promises to take care of Kaew. Compared to other contemporary 1980s Thai horror movies, this movie doesn't have much comic relief despite Lor Tok and Note Chernyim acting, so it is more similar to western standards despite having simple Fx. It could be the Thai version of "The Exorcist"!

This movie uses Culture Club's Boy George as soundtrack. It lasts only 1h10 so either the montage is really bad or it has been censored. เดชผีดิบ first movie with Sombat Methanee was released in year 1968.

But the ghost breaks sacred threads (สายสิญจน์) and chases them (there is always the classic gag when many actors enter a water jar one by one to escape ghost and then flee one by one as there is already another ghost in the water jar). They request support of a monk. Riem listens to monk advice and give them a last chance of redemption. Pradet recruits another master from Cambodia, who also fails due his lust following a beautiful lady, who is in fact an ugly ghost. Kathin festival (ทอดกฐิน) happens. During the ceremony Pradet tries to kidnap Reun but it fails again. Riem comes for Phai and asks him to marry her young sister, Reun. A third master is used by Pradet to stop Riem but it fails again.

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".

"BAAN PHI POP" (บ้านผีปอบ) movies serie had a huge popularity and has generated even worst movies trying to surf on a similar business wave. This low budget movie mixes horror, comedy and Hong Kong action style fight. Unknown actors are featured. Such B grade movies are often short films around 1h15mn and take place in countryside village. The soundtrack is using popular foreign songs. Tawan is a young man, who is disciple of a Chinese master (อาจารย์ ). The Chinese master is in quarrel with another master called Dang. They were also disciplines before but Dang turned to dark side. Tawan is in love with Chantra, young lady owner of a noodle shop. Four ruffians are digging in the Chinese cemetery to get bones to make magic filter. They aggress Chantra. Two Chinese ghosts help Chantra. In fact Tawan was disguised to spy for people stealing bones in the Chinese cemetery. Master Dang decides to use a strong demon (ปีศาจ) to defeat the Chinese master. He needs virgin blood (สาวบริสุทธิ์) to make his demon invulnerable. He has Chantra in mind. The demon (ผีดิบ) kills Dang and captures Chantra. Tawan follows the demon and succeeds to defeat it to free Chantra. Some parts are censored. They are at least cut in the VCD version. There is a guess that some luring parts have been removed. Some sequences are precursory of Ong Bak (องค์บาก) movie as action scenes are repeated two times through different angles and timing to show the action skills. Panna Rittikrai (พันนา ฤทธิไกร), stunt choreography, has been well-known to play and direct similar movies. Such B-grade action and horror movies were popular from the mid-1980s to 1997. They were popular among taxi drivers, spicy papaya salad (ส้มตำ) vendors, security guards and Isan coolies. Folk people in the far-out provinces enjoyed watching such low-budget outdoor movies. Such B grade movies received only limited releases in small provincial theatres. They have been recently resurrected by Lepso Studio in the form of 39-baht VCDs. Most of those movies are bad, made to gain just enough money to invest in the next movie!

Their leader Pradet would like Riem to be his wife but she preferred to kill herself. Riem was Boon’s daughter. He was the village leader (ผู้ใหญ่) and Leun was his second daughter. The ruffians leader wished to become Boon’s son in law so was looking for any ways to have Leun becoming his wife. A master (อาจารย์) Thong recommends corpse oil (น้ำมันพราย) and needs Riem’s hand as ingredient but the procedure (วิธี) shall be correctly performed to avoid creating an evil spirit (ผีร้าย). Hand is cut (วิชาแรง) and corpse is burnt. Riem’s ghost is back for revenge (แลกชีวิต). Pai was aware of Pradet’s plans but he has no proofs he killed Riem. On the day of the temple fair, Pradep tried to put oil on Leun but Pai prevented him to do so. The flask fell on the floor and was broken releasing Riem’s spirit. Pradet took refuge in a Buddhist temple and recruited a new master. The new master failed also. Riem punished the ruffians. Her father and Pai convinced her to stop her rampage. She finally accepted to leave for heaven.” Being convinced by this story, the young man purchases the oil and puts some on the young lady. Unfortunately she has an accident and her ghost is now following the young man due to the love filter... This movie ฤทธิ์เดชยาสั่งน้ำมันพราย is only 73mn long.
