Let's go to the movie - Pee Mak @ GV Bishan

Pee Mak (Thai)







In the Rattanakosin Kingdom, Mak leaves his pregnant wife Nak to join the war and meets four soldiers who become his best friends

During this time, his wife Nak struggles to give birth to their baby

When the war ends, Mak invites his friends to visit Phra Khanong and meet his beautiful wife Nak. Meanwhile, rumors fly around town that Nak is a ghost. His four friends and villagers trying to tell Mak that his wife is already dead


It is no wonder that "Pee Mak" has become the highest grossing film in Thailand. U may go into the theatre to watch a scary Thai horror film like "Long Weekend", but you will stay instead for the comedy and the story itself, as it is concentrates more on those two elements, rather than the horror

But don't let that factor disappoint you, as the movie is pretty funny and surprisingly charming. It does have some scary bits in the film that would make you jump out of your seat or sweat from anxiety, but for the faint-hearted this would definitely be a great "horror" film to entice you to watch more scary films, like how comedy "Shaun Of The Dead" enticed many people to watch zombies more. "Pee Mak" is only one of the films based on a famous Thai-folklore of a ghost

It is also said that the story is based on actual events that took place during the early 19th century. And with so many movies that were made based on this event, "Pee Mak" stood out from the rest because of their comedic approach.

With a comedic approach to stories, most of them are bound to stink and cause disappointment if they are not done right. However, this film had a particularly charming approach to a subtle yet powerful way of telling the story

This film is definitely a must-see for everyone, whether you are a horror fan or would simply love to watch something that would bust your gut yet tell you a good story or a legend. It might not be Oscar-worthy, but you will definitely consider a second watch after your first
