5.0 out of 5 stars One Scary Ghost September 11, 2006
By S. Keel
Format:DVD
The legend of the ghost of Nang Nak is a part of Thai folklore, the story of an 19th Century 'angry ghost' who lived in a bucolic palm-fringed village outside of Bangkok named Pra Khanong..

By 2005, Pra Khanong is part of the dirty old metropolis, the giant grey concrete slab of Bangkok. No longer a place for a rural ghost.

I have never even been there - there's no compelling reason to go. It is ten minutes from where I live, but it is just another part of inner city urban blight nowadays.

This movie works because it treats Bangkok not as a glitzy tourist venue, full of pachyderms, tuk tuks, ladyboys and long-tail boats, but a functioning, ordinary, third-world city in which regular Thai people live with limited budgets and modern fears.

Into this is transported a semi-Gothic, semi J-Horror story, that derives from the old mythology.

Thai movies are often unsophisticated, self-referential and burlesque. This one doesn't fall into that trap, perhaps because it is Directed by a Westerner and doesn't play to stereotype.

I liked it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time January 1, 2007
Format:DVD
This is by far Tartan's worst release. For a distributor that has brought us great titles as The Booth, the vengeance trilogy and else, this is scary at its lowest. The legend of the ghost is explained in other reviews, and it is quite interesting, to say the least. But this pseudo movie is not even that. Directed by a long-time contributor of B-movies (check his filmography), The Ghost of Mae Nak fails to be scary, is not stylish, and not even interesting. But it certainly is predictable, boring, lame, has the worst dialogues you'll hear in a long time, and it is plainly mediocre. Perhaps it is the style of the westerner director, he has shown that he likes/loves Thailand (Butterfly Man), but his skills as a director are not enough to create anything interesting.

Watch Shutter, that one is truly creepy and is told by Thais who really understand Thai and know how to film. Don't waste your time with this dud.

1.0 out of 5 stars RENT IT IF YOU HAVE TO FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF January 27, 2007
Format:DVD
I'M SORRY BUT THIS IS NOT A MOVIE YOU WOULD WANT TO SPEND ANY MONEY ON. REALLY. I WOULD ALSO NOT RECOMMEND EVEN RENTING ( BUT DO THAT IF YOU MUST SEE FOR YOURSELF ) IT AS AFTER THE FIRST APPEARENCE OF THE GHOST IT'S ALL A STRAIGHT DOWNHILL RIDE. IF AMAZON HAD A NO STAR THAT'S WHAT I WOULD HAVE GIVEN THIS. YOU'RE WAITING FOR THAT MOMENT THAT REALLY NEVER COMES. A VERY WEAK EFFORT.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story, more about love than about horror February 22, 2009
Format:DVD
Another reviewer I think already hit on the key point that this movie is more about love than about horror. I watched this movie last summer on DVD and really enjoyed it. For many people this will probably be their first Thai movie they've seen. I've seen a few as I've travelled to Thailand on a few occasions. I've certainly seen scarier Thai horror movies than this one, but I don't think it was the director's intent to make this a "scary" movie. As others have pointed out, this is a folk tale, and the movie feels like a folk tale being told to us. It's not supposed to be Jason v. Freddy with special effects and 12 different camera angles showing someone's head coming off. And I think it is more of a love story than it is a ghost story. If you are expecting blockbuster effects you will be disappointed. If you like seeing a folk tale or a good ghost story you might tell around a camp fire come to life, then you'll likely enjoy this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mr. and Mrs. T Horror March 18, 2010
Format:DVD
Ghost of Mae Nak: 7 out of 10: First we had J horror ( stark white Japanese female ghosts with long black hair that scream) then Korea developed K Horror ( featuring stark white Korean female ghosts with long black hair that scream) and now we have T horror (featuring stark white Thai female ghosts with long black hair that scream). From the looks of all things alphabetical can a home grown Vietnamese ghost story be too far behind.

Now I am not that big fan of ghost stories and the Japanese take on the subject has done very little to impress me. There are only so many faulty florescent lights and violin screams that one man can take. So it surprised me that Mae Nak is as entertaining film in its own right. For one thing this is more a romance than a ghost story.

The story revolves around two very likable kids (named Nak and Mak) who are getting married and settling down when one of them (the guy) is haunted by a ghostly vision (see above). They have true love and the ghost is jealous or vengeful or in pain or something. So they have to help her spirit to rest because (SPOILER ALERT) they bought the house she used to live in and pledged their love on her unmarked grave and received part of her skull as a wedding gift. (No I'm not making this up) The non-ghost scenes however with the couple buying a house and dealing with various relatives and cultural demands are delightful and fresh to these western eyes. And the two leads are both attractive and pleasant and give of the aura of being real people with real lives. (They both have actual jobs and go to punk rock bars with friends).

The movies other asset is the Final Destination style death scenes the ghost uses to exact revenge or protect the couple or whatnot.
