It takes rich boy Ake a month to gain the trust of lovely fellow student Buppha Rahtree (Chemarn Poonyasak), a sad but lovely girl who seems like an impenetrable fortress, but finally he confesses his love to her & gets her into bed ... only to win a bet with his friends.

For the next 2 months Ake avoids her like the plague, it is only when his father sends him to England to study that he musters up enough courage to come clean with her - with unexpected results, as she tells him she is pregnant ...

Ake arranges an abortion for her & promises her to stay with her throughout & afterwards ... but when telling her he's just going out to get a bite to eat, what he's really meaning is that he is leaving for London right away.

Later: Mrs See, the greedy owner of the appartment building Buppha lives in comes to collect the rent from Buppha, but Buppha claims she hasn't got the money but will bring it the next morning. The next morning Buppha brings no money, & when Mrs See & company enter her appartment by force, they find Buppha dead - bled to death byy the abortion ... already one month ago.

However, when the authorities come to collect her body, it turns oput, the spirit of dead Buppha has no intention to leave the building & she scares away not only the police & the fake local Monkey God-exorcist, but also a great number of other exorcists from different faiths & most of the tenants of the building.

Soon the building gains prominence as a haunted house ... but then Ake comes back from England & wants to rekindle his relationship with Buppha - & since he has no idea of what happened since he left her, he mistakes her spirit for the real person, moves in with her & their newfound love blossoms ... until she refuses to have sex with him (which sparks not only memories from her fatal abortion & their last sexual encounter but also her sexually abusive stepdad). Ake tells her it's alright, but wastes no time to seduce the lovely girl from the foodshop next door ... which Buppha finds out & as a punishment ties him to their bed & saws of his legs.

Which is exactly when Mrs See brings in a mighty exorcist from Cambodia who manages to contain Buppha's spirit in her dead body once & for all by a powerful scripture ... but unfortunately, when driving the body to the cemetary the scripture is blown away by a freak wind, giving Buppha an opportunity to avenge herself on the exorcist, Mrs See & her goons ...

Legless Ake meanwhile has ended up with the foodstore girl, who has the good sense of phoning his dad to pick him up ... who tells her though that his son has been dead for a month, & she suddenly sees herself confronted with a corpse in her appartment.

Later, in the appartment building, where Buppha & legless Ake have taken up residence again: Ironi9cally it seems that in death they find the hapiness together that they could never find while alive ...

 

Nice horror film & parody of the genre rolled into one, which spoofs many a genre classic, but without ever falling into the trap of letting the inside-jokes get into the way of the story - with the possible exception of an Exorcist-parody, a scene that's rather short though. At the same time however the film is no masterpiece, & some of the slapstick might be a bit of a letdown, on the other hand it keeps the movie from taking its clichéd story too seriously.
