Aaw is a young girl who grew up in a small village where her grandmother is teaching her in the ways of magic.  When Aaw is a teenager, she has to go to Bangkok to make a living to send back money for medicine to take care of her sick grandmother.  She goes to work at a Go-Go Bar (to entertain foreigners) and is renamed Dau.   She is soon betrayed by many who she works with or for.  She starts to use her magical skills, but however she forgets the rules that her grandmother taught her.  She breaks them and allows an evil spirit a way into her body.  When Dau is asleep, the evil spirit manifests in her form and starts killing people from the inside out.    She wants to stop the evil.  Can she as two of her co-workers seek out a way to stop her and the evil inside her?

 

P is an entertaining horror film.  The plot is a predictable in the paint by the numbers horror film fashion.  It does share some elements with many other Asian horror films.   What does make the film good for entertainment value is that it mixes it horror with the culture of Thailand (from the ghost and magic mythology in addition to the life of Go-Go Bar girls).

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

Two minutes of Behind-The-Scenes footage is too short and should have been mixed in with interviews (with cast and crew).  SOI GO-GO BARS is a featurette of a Western guy talking about Go-Go bars.  It is very low quality and features compression issues throughout.  The Rawang music video is the Go-Go dance sequence from the end credits mixed in with clips from the film.    The director’s audio commentary, with Paul Spurrier, tells various stories about the production.  Paul even gets into stories about his colorful life.

 

The production photos gallery is a slideshow.  Rounding out the extras are the theatrical trailer and teaser for P.

 

FINAL ANALYSIS:  P won’t win any awards for being the best Asian film.  It is worth one viewing.
