A Group of Travelers visiting the exotic forests of Thailand is suddenly attacked by a multi weapon wielding maniac. Some manage to escape; others perish under his merciless blows.
The maniac is the Spirited Killer, a forest dweller who kills anyone stepping into his jungle. Leading the pack to help stop this madman is Tony Jaa (Ong Bak), making his film debut! The Killer is played by none other than his mentor, Panna Rittikrai, who was a major action star in Thailand. Together with Jaa and his other stuntmen protégés, Rittikrai gives Jackie Chan and Jet Li a run for their money with blinding action and superb stunts!
This is the start of a group that would later give the world the action epics Ong Bak and Tom Yum Goong!
For the first time on DVD in the US, Mill Creek is proud to bring you the 2nd and 3rd installments in this highly sought after and much anticipated trilogy of films!
All of the action and excitement of the first film combined with exciting new stars and martial arts action. This compilation of films is truly a collector s dream come true as the new films are introduced as one complete anthology!

SPIRITED KILLER 2 and 3 are screwed up differently. They are presented only in Thai and do have perfectly adequate English subtitles - but they forgot to letterbox the "scope" ratio films. The end result is that both films are stretched out to 16x9, making everything appear unnaturally tall and skinny. SPIRITED KILLER 1, it should be noted, is properly letterboxed in the 16x9 frame.
Bonus points are awarded for referring to the Thai language as "Taiwanese" not once, not twice, but THREE times on the DVD cover. It shows how much work went into this release that not only are ALL the films on the DVD screwed up, but Mill Creek can't even correctly identify the language spoken in the films' country of origin. Don't buy this release... unless you plan on downloading subs for the first film, then re-encoding and re-authoring the whole package yourself.
they seem a bit harsh to me.
If you want a high action, full of rich culture type movie, flush with current Tony Jaa type quality and action, you'll be disappointed, imo, and you're going to pay more for it than the cost of all 3 of these movies.
But if you lower your expectations and realize why the cost is low for 3 movies
then you can come away satisfied.
In the set I received, one had subtitles, and the other two were in English.
They aren't great movies, but they're not bad either if you have a sense of humor
and realize upfront they aren't box office smash hits.
It's entertainment and looks like 70's movie genre. So if you don't place high expectations on them upfront, you can relax, sit back, and actually enjoy them
and some of it will even be comical as you realize the mistakes.
Now all of that being said, there were some pretty good stunts pulled off.
I'm not disappointed with my purchase because I went in eyes wide open.
-Tony Jaa is only in the movie for 5 minutes, and he is just a random guy. The art on the box is taken from Ong Bak. There are no explosions.
-Nonexistent plot. Literally, people running around the woods and fighting repeatedly.
-Horrendous dub. The second two movies are subbed, which is better. The first movie had no sub option.
-Ceases to be funny mid-way through and just gets annoying and repetitive.
-The back of the box says the language is Taiwanese. Taiwanese is not a language, it is a nationality. The language is Thai, and Taiwanese people speak Chinese.
-The choreography is decent, but it is dragged down by every other aspect of the movie.
Not worth your time or money. False advertising.
Buy Ong Bak or The Protector (Tom Yum Goong). They will not disappoint.
The previous movies of his were very much better.
