yesterday i was bored so i decide to watch some movies in youtube. i watched the movie called nang nak i thought it was a horror film however after watching it i realized that the movie is about love. the story is about a couple the guy need to serve the military the woman was left alone in the house she was pregnant that time. the guy was injured deeply in the chest and stay in a monastery and the girl gave birth when the guy is healed he went back home the wife was very happy and served his husband faithfully the twist was the girl died while laboring and the guy didn't know that he is living with a ghost wife and a ghost baby. a great movie its not actually a horror film but it shows the great love of the couple for each other.

As the film's main plot involves the supernatural the classification naturally fall under horror category. I watched the show sometime ago and felt that it was equally touching especially the relentless love which carried through time and space. I think this is what that is missing among couples today who are too quick with their temple and hasty with their decisions. Love is eternal but yet, it can be so fragile and temporal in our hands.

I saw this movie a few years back. It's truly horrifying. I watched it alone and I couldn't go to sleep after watching the movie. And like you've said, it's actually quite a romantic movie since it's about the love that the woman/ghost has for her live husband. It's sad too that they had to exorcise her but if she hadn't done any harm to anyone else, people should have just left the couple alone.

yes..this is a famous film when it first came out..around 1999 i think.. was the first Thai film horror movie that is highly acclaimed..later comes out more decent horror film from Thailand such as SHUTTER..which was remade into a hollywood film.. NANG NAK. It is horror and also a tale of a faithful wife who waits for her husband to come back..and refuse to die..until her spirit is calmed down.. the water village location shot is outstanding.
