In Bangkok, the groom Mak is scared, having successive nightmares with a ghost woman, Mae Nak, an ancient Thai legend. He meets his beloved fiancée Nak to visit an old house in Phrakhanong with the unscrupulous real state agent Angel and they decide to buy the property. After their wedding, two small time thieves break into the house and steal their gifts and other objects. When Mak sees the criminals on the streets of Bangkok selling his goods, he chases the burglars and they run their van over Mak, who gets into a deep coma. Mae Nak protects the young couple against Angel and the burglars, but in return she holds the soul of Mak. Nak finds the remains of Mae Nak in an ancient cemetery, and with some monks, they exorcise Mae Nak from Mak and release her spirit.Written by

What film were some of the other reviewers watching?
This is a really poor film. Some of the reviewers seem to think it is saved by having a British director but that's it's problem. How many scary British films have there been? Very few. How many crap and predictable British horror films have there been? More than you can hope to count. And this oaf carries on that British tradition. People get killed in stupid and derivative ways (sliced in two by panes of glass? Omen anyone?) and the 'scares' and gore are delivered in a way that is just stupid. If you are sacred by this then you better avoid your shadow because that will make you jump out of your skin. Acting? Well it would've been nice if there had been some. The horror channel would probably reject this. That's really how bad this is.
