rural Thai village, a young man named Monaud marries beautiful Bua Klee.
But she is infected with a curse (instigated by a ring) from her deceased
grandmother. This strange affliction causes her to become a Krasue [severed-head,
gut-eating ghost] by night, flying through the countryside looking for
fresh blood and newborn babies. After an unsuccessful attempt to exorcise
Bua Klee, the two flee to another village. But they have not escaped the
curse. Their life becomes even more complicated when another young woman
falls in love with Monaud and captures his heart with black magic.
ultra-obscure film from Thai producer Banlue Utsahajitr is considered
the first to feature a traditional SouthEastern Asia'Krasue' ghost
[i.e., also called Penanggalon, a flying severed head with
intestines and organs attached]. The movie benefits from a rustic atmosphere
and earnest performances but the FX are sorely dated [by today's standards].
There are three different Krasues in this film, plus a zombie and an [unnecessary]
giant. The leading actors, Sombat Methanee and diva Pitsamai Wilaisak,
were considered the "dream couple" at the time. Other Krasue
movies followed; the best known are MYSTICS
IN BALI and WITCH
WITH THE FLYING HEAD.
