Ghost Ship (มอญซ่อนผี 猛鬼船) Movie Review:

The thais have now moved their horror into the deep waters. Trapped in a ship, the sailors have little place to run, and this is perhaps the scariest part of the plot. The walkways are narrow and creaking, the ship parts are old and rundown, a perfect setting for any ghosts to haunt the human. These traditional scare techniques were used skilfully, as they were so close to characters that I couldn’t help but feel worried for them.
Ghost Shop Thai Movie Still 1Unlike many Thai horror films where the horror dwells in one’s mind, here in “Ghost Ship”, the ghosts terrorized the innocent first. With two familiar faces, I’m not surprised by the combination of comedic transgender and eye-candies. They are well-liked and harmless, a huge contrast to the supporting characters whom each have their own history of evil deeds that lead to this horror.

Ghost Shop Thai Movie Still 9This film was not without slight disappointments. For the first half of the movie, certain scenes did not make sense and seem to be there for the sake of being there. It was difficult to make a proper story out of what I’ve watched except that the unknowing sailors have board a haunted ship.

Ghost Shop Thai Movie Still 13The whole picture started becoming clearer near the later half of the movie. It wasn’t difficult to predict what will happen next if you have been attentive with the little abstract details right from the start. (Hint: Think pails)

If there’s a redeeming subplot about this ghost story, it is the side-love story that became surprisingly important in the end. I was never concentrating on the eloping couple – Nutcha Jeka (Miah) and Sean Jindachote (Nick), until the climax when certain details were revealed.

Ghost Shop Thai Movie Still 6The love story went full-scale, and although it was short, it was still touching enough to end this film on a somewhat positive note (at least for me). The whole movie did not really have a morale of the story, but it provided me with a quick thought – sometimes, it’s the evil in our hearts that bring out the horror in spirits. 

Do You Know?

Ghost Shop Thai Movie Still 15This is not the first time Timethai Plangslip (Solui) acted in a horror film. He starred in Ghost Coins as one of the antagonist.

  2. Yvonne Bertoldo says:

    Not a fan of horror movies but have tried watching Thai horror films such as this one. It looks a bit of comedy and horror all at the same time.

  3. Fatemah Sajwani (@FatemahSajwani) says:

    I am not a fan of horror or thriller movies but this seems interesting. Happy new Year Tiffany.

  4. nicol says:

    ive never watched a thai film before but this isn’t really something i would watch. i get bored of horrors lol

  5. Cebuana Mom (@cebuanamom) says:

    Is this the same movie from the English version of the same title? Saw it a few years ago and got me curious if this is the same one. Love horror films.

  6. Bhushavali says:

    Wow!!! I like horror movies. Yeah, I do get scared and hug my guy tightly. But still, they are awesome!

  7. franckxethee says:

    It’s a murder mystery and a ghost suspense movie in one. It’s gonna be scary yet you’d be glued in solving the murder.

  8. Girl, Unspotted says:

    I remember watching a movie called Ghost Ship years ago, but it was a Hollywood film. I don’t remember the story though. This one is actually very intriguing. If I ever do come across it, or if it makes it on Netflix, I would absolutely give it a try!

  9. Sunshine Kelly says:

    I did not watch this Thai horror movie. Timethai Plangslip always looks good.

  10. Jason Panuelos says:

    This seems like such a scary setting! Where do you go when you’re in the middle of the sea and someone’s trying to kill you?! Haha this is so crazy! 😀

  11. Fred says:

    I was in Thailand over the holidays but I did not see this in the cinemas. It was all US Blockbusters there in the big malls. I wanted to catch a Thai movie but did not get to do so. This could have been the one, but I did not see it in any of the malls I visited in Bangkok.

  12. Elizabeth O. says:

    Nice! A Ghost story on a ship, we rarely have movies like this lately. I’m very much interested in the story, really. Although I can’t watch horror flicks alone, I’m too afraid. LOL.

Tell me what you think!
