3.0 out of 5 stars not bad, delivery wasn't good unfortunately March 20, 2006
Format:DVD
I saw this movie yesterday and I have to say that ASIAN horror flicks have a way of coming out with original ways for its characters to pass away.

The plot itself wasn't very original. It revolves around a woman scorned and played with a rich married man. When she got impregnated by him, she was paid off by a lot of money then the rich man shared her with his friends. Quite sick if you ask me, but not as sick when she resorted to witchcraft to have her vengeance. With the aid a warlock, she had his entire family killed as well as the rich man who wronged her. She thought that ahe could inherit his estate when everyone was gone. Unbeknowest to her the man had a first family. The story picks off when she becomes the wife of one of his sons, but when he started to suspect something's wrong, she poisons him and tries to pick off the first family one by one. I will not go into further details but in this movie you will see one of the creepiest looking child ghosts since the Locker and the Ring.

My one complaint about the film is the screenplay. It seemed to start near the end and goes back in time as memories and part of a conversation, because of this delivery, the film ended up losing most of the suspense and creepiness it could have achieved. However, the bewitching scenes are a bit creepy, nails, blades among other things being choked up but after awhile it gets redundant. The 2 lead actresses are gorgeous, especially the villainess I hope to see her in other films. The cast all need acting lessons though.

The dvd comes in 5.1 english dubbed but I decided to watch it in Thai as per its original audio. If you are a fan of asian horror, you may want to take a look. The lead actress/villainess is enchanting to look at.

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it.... April 24, 2007
Format:DVD
The movie brings nothing new and is rather predictable but I have a fondness for revenge flicks. A girl gets used and thrown away by a guy and she seeks revenge by going to a man who uses magic. The girl befriends the family and watches as they die in weird ways offering the remaining family members consolation. So nothing new but I enjoyed a few of the death scenes. If you do choose to watch it please make sure you watch it in the Thai audio because the dubbing is really bad.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pedestrian and predictable at best January 23, 2007
Format:DVD
So ... given my rather glowing review of "Long Khong" (Art of the Devil 2), was "Kong Len Khong" (Art of the Devil) any good? Nah ... the first Art of the Devil turns out to be just a pedestrian Thai horror movie with little horror, a predictable story, some gore (bleeding gullets and razor blades galore) but not much else. Here's the Cliffs Notes summary: A pretty young woman is introduced to a rich middle aged man, and proceeds to have a torrid affair with him. She gets pregnant and blackmails him into paying her off. He gets upset and arranges for her to be gang-raped by three of his rich friends. She gets more upset and pays an evil shaman to bump him and his family (and his lecherous friends and their families as well) off in nasty ways (picture bloody gullets, razor blades, and rusty nails). Then she gets even MORE upset when the estate of the rich man goes to his common-law wife's family (i.e. "unofficial" second wife i.e. concubine/mistress). And so the evil shaman gets more business, casting a love spell on the eldest (illegitimate) son so that his conniving client can sleep her way into the family and then kill them off one by one with the aim of ultimately inheriting the late rich man's estate. But she did not count on the late rich man's plucky young (illegitimate) daughter and her inquisitive reporter friend. And so both her and her evil shaman get their comeuppance in due course, after a lot of eels, cowhides, bloody gullets, razor blades and rusty nails again (which obviously don't mixed well), and gunshots. End of movie. I did say it was a rather pedestrian Thai horror movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie, but the audio selection is messed up. October 23, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I liked this movie. It was good. But the audio selection was messed up. From the audio set up on the DVD menu. It does have the 5.1 and 2.0 or English dubbing, but when I clicked on Thai, the movie plays in the dubbed English. I had to press the audio button on my remote to put it in Thai.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible October 8, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Art of the Devil made no real sense. Okay so the father and his friends sexually abused her so she had them killed. I get that. They deserved it. That should end the revenge right there, but no, she has to kill his wife and kids as well. And she didn't even stop there as she then began to have his ex wife and her kids killed. I think that's going a little overboard with the whole revenge thing. And she wasn't even the person who did the witchcraft. She had some guys do it for her. And they never really explained why these guys were willing to kill so many people for her. I doubt she had much money but still they helped her kill one after the other in grotesque and horrifying ways like they were simply taking out the trash. I don't even know what she stood to gain from it all. The father's estate? Was it really worth that much?

I did not find this movie entertaining at all. They don't show the deaths of the guys who actually deserved it. Instead it starts with them already dead and we get to watch innocent victims die for reasons I never felt were justified. The plot wasn't thought out well. There was nothing scary about it. And the actors were mostly just annoying. Especially the female lead Nan. If I had to listen to another ten minutes of her whiny voice I think I'd stab out my eardrums with a pen. There really is no redeeming qualities to this film. Avoid.
