Gangstas, girls and ghouls in Gangcore Gud


Hip-hop mogul Joey Boy blends gangsta rappers with girls and ghouls for Gancore Gud (ก้านคอกัด) a low-budget horror-comedy that has his Gancore hip-hop collective stranded on a remote island where they hope to party with a bunch of bikini-clad Playboy models. They instead are confronted by zombies and other supernatural beings.

Being released in Thai cinemas on Thursday by Phranakorn film, Gancore Gud, literally "Gancore bite", is the feature-film directorial debut for Joey Boy, a.k.a. Apisit Opasaimlikit.

He previously wrote and starred in GTH's 2006 rock 'n' roll comedy The Possible (Kao ... Kao) and played a motor-mouthed monk in Phranakorn's Luangphee Teng 2 (The Holy Man 2). He won a Best Music Video prize in 2009 at the Seed Awards for directing a clip for the song "Ratree Sawad" by one of his Gancore rapper cohorts, Golf Sing Nuea.

In addition to Joey Boy and his hip-hop crew, the cast of Gancore Gud includes "Oum" Lakana Wattanawongsiri, the actress who raised eyebrows with her masturbation scene in last year's erotic movie Namtan Dang (Brown Sugar). She plays the Goddess of the Forest. There's also models "Atom" Pakjira Wisawawisut and Kumiko Sugaho.

You can read more about the movie in an article in The Nation. Watch the trailer at YouTube (embedded below).

  1. Zombies? Ghouls? Bad comedy and sexy antics?

    Ok... I'm sold. Darn I'm such an easy person to convince to watch these films.... Hehehehe!!

    Hmmmm? Wasn't Lakana Wattanawongsiri also in one of those Flying Vampire Head movies a while back? I seem to remember her from one of those....
