A fake taxi driver (No taxi meter in 1981 on taxis!) captures a young lady student. His boss, a mysterious and unscrupulous doctor (หมอ) Kampon, takes away her eyes. One of the eyes cannot be used as the fake taxi driver punches her. Da, the doctor’s wife, is blind following a car accident so Kampon needs to find new eyes (ดวงตา). Noi (Naowarat Yooktanun) and Pol,a young couple, are married but have financial difficulties. Pol is looking for a job. The bad servants capture a drunken tramp to steal his eyes. His eyes cannot be used as they are sick (ตายฟรีๆสองคน!). So Kampon shall select next time the donor by himself. Kampon meets Pol and is immediately interested by his eyes. Nang Soi (Preeya Roongrueng), Kampon's servant, is possessed by the two dead spirits (ผีเข้า), i.e. the lady student and the tramp, while walking near their graves. A shaman (หมอผี) is needed. The shaman recommends to put drawing representing religious mystical symbols (ยันต์) and sacred threads (สายสิญจน์) in front of the house to repel ghosts. Kampon's servant comes to take Pol to work. It is a trick to take his eyes to give to his blind wife. The body is thrown away in the same cemetery as the previous bodies (ศพ). Noi has bad premonition about her husband. One of servant Off wishes to help some villagers friends to make love filters so he tells them where to find a fresh dead body, i.e. Pol, to make corpse oil (น้ำมันพราย). Thanks to Pol’s eyes, Da can see again. A shaman (อาจารย์) wakes up Pol's spirit by wishing to get corpse oil (ผีตาโบ๋). It turns to a fiasco. Pol wants his eyes back (เอาลูกตาของกูคืนมา) and wishes to kill Kampon. Noi is worried about her husband and visits Kampon to get news. There is opposition between the modern doctor (นักวิทยาศาสตร์) and the ghost. The doctor has to accept ghost reality and asks help from a traditional shaman called Ket! Pol ghost visits his own house and discusses with his youngest daughter. Only young children are not afraid of ghosts. Pol ghost terrorizes local villagers. Pol appears in Noi's dreams and asks her to remove the sacred items in front of Kampon's house. He is now able inside the house, gets revenge and his eyes back. Shaman Ket cannot help and escapes death as Noi asks Pol ghost to stop his killings. Pol ghost is reduced to ashes and worms as the sunny morning arrives. There is a short funny apparition of legendary comic actor Lor Tok as a guy stealing coconuts at nighttime. As usual in 1980s movies, there is mix of slight horror and comedy with simple Fx effects.
