Intrigued by the Thai trailers for the latest from Banjong Pisanthanakun (Shutter
, Phobia 2
)but wish you could understand what the hell the were saying? Wish granted. The international teaser for the film has been released, English subtitles included. This one plays things largely straight, the only indication of the comedy element coming right at the end. You want an extended synopsis to chew on as well? You got it:
During the beginning of the Rattanakosin Dynasty, many Thai men were
drafted to serve in the war. "Pee Mak" or "Mak" (Mario Maurer) was no
exception and had to leave his pregnant wife to join the fight. While at
war, he met, saved, and formed a close bond with four fellow soldiers:
"Ter" (Freud-Nattapong Chartpong), "Puak" (Pongsathorn Jongwilas),
"Shin" (Auttarut Kongrasri), and "Aey" (Kantapat Permpoonpatcharasook)
-- (The 4 main cast from Phobia 2 Episode "In The End")
war was over, Mak invited his four best friends to visit his home at a
town called Phra Khanong. When they arrived to Phra Khanong, Mak
introduced them to his beautiful wife "Nak" (Davika Hoorne) and "Dang"
his newborn baby boy. Ter, Puak, Shin, and Aey decided to stay in Phra
Khanong for a while and moved into the old house across from Mak's
Despite having met Nak and Dang, a village rumor was going around that Nak had died giving birth to her stillborn baby, Dang.
turns out that Auntie Priak, owner of the local liquor shop, was the
source of the town rumor. This was completely absurd to Ter, Puak, Shin,
and Aey. The four friends refused to believe this to be true and were
determined to prove the rumors wrong.
Aunty Priak was found dead a
few days later, her body floating along the river. Up until this point
Ter, Puak, Shin, and Aey had never considered the possibility that Nak
and her baby could be dead and now lingered on as haunting ghosts.
the four friends didn't dare tell Mak about their suspicions because
they were afraid that they would end up just like Aunty Priak. It didn't
take long before their conscience caught up with them and they realized
they owed Mak the truth since he had once saved all of their lives. Now
they must risk their own lives to somehow convey to Mak that the living
and dead shouldn't coexist together.
In the end, it will be up to Pee Mak to choose between love and reality.
