Pee Mak (http://caamfest.com/2014/films/pee-mak/)

"SHUTTER co-director Banjong Pisanthanakun’s No. 1 Thai box office hit, PEE MAK, is a hilarious send-up of horror movie conventions that owes as much to SCARY MOVIE 3 as it does to Thailand’s favorite lovelorn ghost, Mae Nak. Every Thai child knows the tale: wounded country boy Mak returns home to his village after the war — this time around with his four best buddies in tow — to reunite with his love and their son, only something is not quite right.

While Mak gets mushy with his devoted bride (Thai/Belgian model Davika Hoorne), the four friends set up in a neighboring house that has conveniently been abandoned by frightened villagers — everyone seems to believe Mak’s wife is a ghost, and not without good reason. Between all the stringy long black hair, outrageous physical gags and genuine scares, you might gloss over the film’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it barrage of on-point cultural references and its luxe cinematography. Try to keep your eyes open: Pee Mak is a rare treat — certified art and certified pop." - Jackson Scarlett
