The story of Mae Nak is a retelling of a Thai tale which is tweaked and sited in modern Bangkok.  The use of technology to produce a believable horror film that is at par with The Ring and other Asian horror films. It is  more about the message that tells of love as lasting forever, even beyond death. I was touched about the idea of the eternal of love and I feel that the Thai people also feel the same way. I am glad that they shared with us a piece of their culture through this movie.

Creepy and chilling! This film makes you scream and will jolt you out of your seats! Ghost of Mae Nak  is an updated version and a retelling of an old Thai legend and will remind viewers of horror flicks like "The Grudge" and "Ring". Commendable scary shots with Director Mark Duffield utilizing his cinematography skills to the hilt and giving the film an international appeal with a modern take on gore and the scary element. Acting-wise though, the performance of the two leads Mak and Nak seems to lack in depth and in convincing people of their relationship as a couple, support cast like Noi seems to stood out more.  Generally though, this is an engaging film to watch and recommended if you want to have a good scare.
