Cast & Credits
Lets start with the story. Honestly, I have never seen a plot like this before. While reading it, I thought the film would be something different and it really was. Thankfully, the movie was not tragic (because there was mention of the army) and there was loads of comedy. I must admit, part of why I held off on watching this film for a while is because one of the genres of the film is 'horror'. I am scared easily, but thankfully the horror is this movie was mostly stupid/funny horror, a.k.a the type that I actually like! For that reason, the film was very fun to watch!
The acting in this film was great! The four villagers were very funny and always made great jokes. I especially loved the bit about organic food! Mak was very cute and Nak was hilarious, while spooky at the same time. The actors were chosen well too. This was my first time seeing Mario Maurer act and he definitely did a great job (he was good looking too)! Davika Horne is also gorgeous and a great actor as well! I dont know the names of the villagers, but they were a pleasure to watch!
There was not a lot of music used in this film. Although, the music used to set the mood always fit the scene properly. As well, this movie is definitely good enough to rewatch if you want to see something funny and slightly romantic at times.
Overall, if you want to see something silly or just want to familiarize yourself with Thai films, this is a great choice!
Watch Pee Mak!! Seriously though, Spellboud and even Master's Sun had scarier scenes than this movie so it has a theme of horror but more like mock horror. This movie was funny from start to finish.
My teenage brother who doesn't like to watch much foreign movies enjoyed this movie just as much as me; we couldn't stop laughing.
The plot is solid with, surprisingly, a few twists. The cast had great chemistry with one another which made this movie an even bigger success.
The music is incoherent but with a comedy, it works perfectly. The budget, you can tell immediately, wasn't big; however, the comedy is based from the cast and their interactions.
The pace is good, the acting is great, and overall a 10 rating movie for me when they can make me laugh more than what was shown in the trailer.
Would definitely watch this movie again, esp. when introducing friends/ family to asian media entertainment.
