Mak and Nak, a young newlywed couple in Bangkok, acquire an antique brooch and an old abandoned house that soon bring them into contact with the ghost of Mae Nak, a figure of horror from one of Thailand's most enduring ghost legends....and the fun begins
Ghost of Mae Nak does have some really cool death scenes that are reminiscent of the Final Destination movies, but much like the Final Destination movies....Ghost of Mae Nak just isn't very good, but that's not why we watch these films, is it? No.....It's the Movie Deaths yo.
Just check out this scene and tell me it doesn't ooze Final Destination. In this clip Mae Nak's ghost "protects" the couple from an unscrupulous real estate agent.......
Ouch! Pretty good for a low budget Thai film huh? Too bad the movie itself isn't very good. Want to watch an awesome, entertaining Thai film? 13 Beloved aka 13: Game of Death.......hell yeah.
The film is about a about a guy who is led through 13 progressively challenging, degrading, and dangerous tasks by a mysterious caller....The tasks? Well, for example, #3 is to make three children cry, #5? Eat a plate of feces served in a Chinese restaurant......yummy! Remake rights for the film were purchased by The Weinstein Company. Of course they were...
