The first reflex traditionalist fans of the ancient legend will have on laying their eyes on the lead cast is probably to die a little on the inside. The feeling exponentially multiplies upon watching a trailer that depicts Pee Mak, played by Mario Maurer, as an abbaew airhead. It really makes you wonder if there's something wrong with Mak or Nak: is this nitwit, albeit cute as a button, seriously the guy she has been remorsefully lamenting over?
Mario Maurer is the childlike hubby in Pee Mak Phra Khanong .
After all these years of witnessing the suffering and vengeance of Nak, audiences are finally getting to observe what everything is like when Mak comes home from war and has to deal with the whole village accusing his wife, played by Davika Hoorne, of being a ghost. In this spin-off of the almost century-old tale, Mak and his four chums Puak, Shin, Aey and Ter barely make it back to Phra Khanong, thanks to their gory war wounds. What ensues is a comedic discovery that Nak is _ surprise, surprise _ a ghost.
