visit during the Suddenly It’s Magic movie with Erich Gonzales. Pee Mak was under the production of GTH and will be distributed by Star Cinema here in the Philippines starting August 28. The film also stars Davika Hoorne, Pongsathorn Jongwilas, Nattapong Chartpong, Auttarut Kongrasri and Kantapat Permpoonpatcharasook.
Mario Maurer could not hide his excitement and happiness after seeing
his supporters waiting for him in the cinema area of TriNoma. He
mentioned that he is very happy and thankful that Pee Mak will be shown
in the Philippines like his other film Crazy Little Thing Called Love
and his first Philippine film with Erich. According to him, he enjoyed
doing Pee Mak because it was a perfect combination or horror, comedy and
romance which was set in a poor village during the war in Siam. During the short program Mario said “mahal ko kayo” which intensifies the emotions of his supporters who went in TriNoma in order to see him. He is hoping that they will love the story of Pee Mak.
Pee Mak is horror comedy film that follows the life of Mak (Mario)
together with his 4 friends who survived the war. His wife Nak was
feared in the village because of the belief she’s already a ghost along
with their son. It will be a big quest to the friends of Mak to help him
realize the truth in order to save him. The movie
is a total riot which includes the fun and horror at the same time that
it is perfect “barkada” movie. I really admire how scenes were shot the
texture and the feel that shows how devastated are the area along with the production and costume design.
And most of all I really enjoyed the twist that really give the funny
complication on the simple movie like Pee Mak. The film was based from
the Thai folklore Mae Nak Phra Khanong.
Mario Maurer became popular in the Philippines because of the film
The Love of Siam in 2007 and later another hit in 2010 for the film
Crazy Little Thing Called Love (First Love).
