Horror Comedy Pee Mak Phra Khanong Shatters Thai Box Office Records
While the horror genre is definitely kicking ass here in the States, it's great to know that it's flourishing globally as well. Case in point: the Thai horror comedy Pee Mak Phra Khanong, aka Pee Mak, from Shutter and Phobia director Banjong Pisanthanakun.
According to 24 Frames Per Second, the flick has apparently just blown a big hole in Thai box office records since its release on March 28, 2013. Thus far the film has raked in over 300 million baht, which equates to around 10.3 million dollars US. So what do you say we take a look at the trailer that comes complete with English subtitles? Mario Maurer and Davika Hoorne star.
In the Rattanakosin Kingdom, Mak (Mario Maurer) leaves his pregnant wife, Nak (Davika Hoorne), to join the war and meets four soldiers who become his best friends. During this time, his wife Nak struggles to give birth to their baby.
When the war ends, Mak invites his friends to visit Phra Khanong and meet his beautiful Nak. Meanwhile, rumors fly around town that Nak is a ghost. His four friends and villagers try to tell Mak that his wife is already dead.
