Mae Nak is looking for her husband and remove roofs from village homes to check inside. Same as many 1970 Thai horror movies, Fx effects are poor. Such movie includes typical repetitive jokes about unaware villagers talking to ghosts and then fleeing when they discover they are talking to real ghosts, or a joke when many men can hide in a water jar and then flee when a ghost is entering also, or comical psychics (หมอผี) unable to chase away ghosts whatever they are Thai, Indian or Chinese. Finally only a Buddhist monk novice can stop Mae Nak. Once again Nak and Mak promise to love each other in next life (ถ้าชาติหน้ามีจริงให้เราไปเกิดใช้ชีวิตรวมกันอีก). Mae Nak movies are famous as more than 15 remakes have been done and Mae Nak story is part of Thai culture but this remake doesn't bring any added value despite the presence of Sombat Methanee.

Thai title: หนุมานพบ 5 ไอ้มดแดง
English title: Hanuman and the Five Kamen Riders
Director: Sompote Sangduenchai
Main actor: Yodchai Meksuwan,Phirapon Piyawan
Main actress: Tanyarat Lohanan
Producer-director Sompote Sangduenchai has made movies covering the "Thai-style kaiju" and costumed Ultraman movies made in years 1970s and 1980s. He has reused footage from other Kamen Rider movies so making this movie montage a little bit strange from time to time with a succession of sequences without link. There are kitsch fx effects from 1970s decade including super computers with many big lights and weird sounds. Those movies are under Chayo productions. All Chayo movies (ไชโยภาพยนตร์) have Sompote's specific touch. King Dark, monsters' leader, needs to drink blood from women or children. Hopefully the Five Kamen Riders (ไอ้มดแดง or red ants) can always stop them. Those Japanese characters are adaptated to Thai customs. The five Kamen riders always succeed to be there when problems with monsters (สัตว์ประหลาด) occur. King Dark refuses to drink blood dog so he needs to find a way to get rid of the Five Kamen Riders. Three men fall in hell (ตกนรก) as they stole Buddha statue heads. A kid tries to stop them but is shot dead. He is reincarnated into Hanuman. Sinners (ทำบาป) are punished and Buddha heads are restored. Yama (พระยม), the hell god, checks his hell book (บัญชี is a map!) and they are condemned to many torments. Sompote Sangduenchai's adaptation is certainly not a film for children as many naked women and men are tortured in the representation of Buddhist hell. The monsters help one of the sinners to escape hell in order to fight the Five Kamen riders. He succeeds to capture famous Doctor Wisut. Doctor Wisut refuses to help but the monsters kidnap his girlfriend Julie to coerce him. He has no choice but to accept doing a Frankenstein creature to fight the Five Kamen riders. The new creature has the same face as Frankenstein in foreign movies. A succession of fights take place and King Dark's aliens are defeated. King Dark needs to move to Ayuthaya (เมืองใหม่). The Doctor is forced again to do a machine to make monsters to catch young ladies for their blood. Their blood is not good as they eat bad food. So they break their promise by taking Julie's blood (กินเลือดสาวบริสุทธิ์จะมีอายุนาน, มีพลัง). The Five Kamen Riders are finally defeated by King Dark but Hanuman helps them (ทำให้ฟื้น). They make an alliance against the monsters. They enter in their headquarters then free doctor and Julie. King Dark flees and starts a rampage in Bangkok same as Godzilla. Nobody can stop him except Hanuman. Hanuman fights in a Thai relax dancing way (สบายสบาย) and defeats King Dark. The traitor is brought back to hell (ตกนรกอีก) and his head is cut (ทำบาปก็ต้องใช้บาป). The movie is worth as it is a Thai adaption of Japanese characters by famous director Sompote adding a lot of Thainess. A 1976 agreement limited Sompote's copyright to only nine movies made by Sompote Sangduenchai in the 1970s.

Only this inmate knows where Wang Piu, nicknamed as King Cobra, is. Veteran actor Lor Tok is playing the jail keeper. The inmate is killed just after telling to Pan that King Cobra is located in Pu Geng area and after giving a letter of introduction. Pan teams up with Lor Tok. They are both threatened by ruffians also looking for King Cobra. Pan asks his friend Chumporn to look after his home and his brother while he is away looking for King Cobra. Around Pu Geng area, Pan meets the local owner (Adinan Singhiran) of a mine. He is hired as a tough man after showing up his skills to knock out four guys and even helps the mine owner's daughter who was kidnapped. Meanwhile Pan's brother is kidnapped by a team of ruffians led by a fierce young lady called KenYouSee (Wassana Chalakorn). To get his brother back, Pan needs to bring Wang Piu to the young lady. She has a revenge to take as Wang Piu caused her parents to die 10 years ago. Pan locates the King Cobra or Wang Piu thanks to the letter of introduction but the young lady KenYouSee is following just behind them. Pan finally meets a noble man looking for his lost princess daughter. Meanwhile KenYouSee captures King Cobra and tortures him as revenge. MengYu, the casino owner, KenYouSee and other thugs were all looking for King Cobra. MengYu double crosses Pan. The princess is in fact Peng, KenYouSee's sister. Everybody is looking for her jewels box as it includes a list of political insurgents. The list is for sale. Finally the princess is kidnapped by MengYu while storming KenYouSee's camp to try getting King Cobra. Through a daring operation, Pan and his friends release the princess. During the movie shooting, long trail boats run over each other and actress Petchara Chaowarat falls in the river. MengYu's team and the thugs willing to buy the list kill each other believing the other party breaks the deal. It is a full packed action movie. Unfortunately the Thai movie is cut into an international version lasting only 1h33mm instead of two hours so those cuts make the movie directing and scenario sometimes weird. It is a IFD movie and luckily it is not merged with Ninja sequences as the original Thai movie is lost in Thailand. During year 1976, this movie was famous as famous veteran actress Petchara Chaowarat falls in the water following a dangerous action scene between two long trail boats. It appears on all Thai newspapers and those newspapers are even featured on the movie poster! The other event was related to sexy actress (ดาวยั่วเซ็กซี) Wassana Chalakorn who dares playing naked in a shower scene. The IFD movie has been redubbed in Thai language in Thailand recently.

The sequences shown in the trailer are related to the usage of a shaman (หมอผี), Pawana and Sombat having a kid, Sombat being aggressed, Pawana being a spirit, Metta slapping Pawana, Pawana protecting her son while still being a spirit. As the movie is in 16mm format and in mute state as such movies need to be dubbed, it is not easy to understand the story. Pawana is at the same time a fearful and commiserate ghost.
