One of the most terrifying of Thai ghosts – and one that has appeared on film countless times – is the krasue. By day she lives as a normal human woman, but at night her head detaches from her body and floats around, trailing viscera and feasting on flesh – human and animal alike. In Sittisiri Mongkolsiri’s take on the tale, Sai, a teenage girl in a rural village during World War II, is cursed to become a krasue once she reaches puberty. This development complicates her budding relationship with fellow villager Jerd. When a gang of demon hunters comes to town, the kids have to find a way to keep her curse a secret. If you are looking for a movie that mixes gore, action, romance, and a shotgun-wielding Buddhist monk, this is the one for you. (Dir.: Sittisiri Mongkolsiri, Thailand, 2019, 122 min., DCP, Thai with English subtitles)
