Villains and ghosts for Halloween
CnnGo Bangkok is celebrating Halloween.
They got somebody to list the "5 baddest Thai movie villains of all time". I don't know how comprehensive that list is, or even how villainous the characters on it are. There are probably worse villains in Thai films I haven't seen, or ones that I'm not recalling. But it's still five great characters, including the Red Suitcase killer from Slice -- go see Slice if you can.
Mae Nak from Nang Nak is on there to, even though she isn't really a villain -- just a ghost who's trying to keep her family together.
She's on another CnnGo feature too -- a rundown of Thai superstitions.
And speaking of ghosts, there's a gallery of Thailand's forgotten cinemas feature photos from the Southeast Asia Movie Theater Project.
