Nang Nak

Synopsis

Nonzee Nimibutr, whose previous work includes Dang Bireley and the Young Gangsters (1997) directs this supernatural drama that proved to be phenomenally popular in its native Thailand. Set in the 1860s, young villager Mak leaves his wife and child to fight in an unnamed war. When he returns, he finds the village is possessed by ghosts. Soon, local monks hire a hirsute Buddhist ghostbuster to thwart the supernatural scourge. Nang Nak was screened at the 1999 Vancouver Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
