First Shot From Banjong Pisanthanakun's PEE MAK PHRAKANONG

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Thai director Banjong Pisanthanakun - co-director of Shutter and Alone, solo contributor to both Phobia horror anthology projects and helmer of the hysterical N Is For Nuptials segment in The ABCs of Death - is hard at work on his latest effort, the feature horror comedy Pee Mak Phrakanong.

While plot details are generally being kept under wraps - all we've been told is that it's a sort of gender inversion of the classic Nang Nak legend - and there is not yet an English title for the film, Pisanthanakun let us know that the quartet of young men who starred in his Phobia shorts would be in the cast here as well along with star Mario Maurer. And whaddaya know? There they all are in the first shot released from the film.

Rest assured that we'll be keeping a very close eye on this one. Shutter and Alone remain some of the strongest titles of the Asian horror wave of the early 2000s while Pisanthanakun proved with his Phobia shorts that he is one of very, very few international directors who can really nail horror comedy in a way that can travel internationally.
