Baan Phee Pob returns with vengeance

There have been something like two-dozen installments in the long-running Baan Phee Pob ghost-comedy series, which goes back to the 1980s.

The story, involving much running around, screaming and slapstick antics by villagers who hide in water jars, is about a gut-munching female ghost who disembowels her victims with a sharp thrust of her claw-like hands.

There have been many iterations of Baan Phee Pob over the years – 2001's Pop Weed Sayong, a.k.a. Body Jumper, comes to mind – but the original series was revived in 2008 by Golden A Entertainment. They brought back veteran actress Natthanee Sitthisaman as Pob Yib. Now comes the second installment in the rebooted series starring Natthanee, Baan Phee Pob: Reformation (บ้านผีปอบ รีฟอร์เมชั่น), which aims to bring Pob into the modern era.

You can read more about the long-running a series in a Bangkok Post story by Kong Rithdee. Rated G.

Here's a trailer to watch, if you dare.
