    “Death Whisperer” is a Thai horror movie that’s not your usual spooky possession story. It starts with someone eating raw meat and there’s even an exorcism attempt, but it’s got more than that like guns, host trees, and weird rituals you’ve never seen before.

    The movie follows a family of eight living in a simple farming community in Kanchanaburi province back in 1972. Everything seems normal until the second daughter starts acting strangely, and that’s when things get supernatural.

    The movie does a good job of making you care about the family, and you’ll find yourself rooting for them as the story unfolds. There’s talk of a sequel, so before that hits screens, let’s take a quick look at what makes “Death Whisperer” stand out.

    What Causes Yam’s Possession?

    In a small village in Thailand back in 1972, a girl named Nart passed away after being very sick for a long time. Then, the story shifts to another family with six kids. Three sisters go to school, two brothers work on the farm, and the eldest brother is away training to be a soldier.

    At school, Yam and Yard find some spooky drawings by Nart. When the eldest brother unexpectedly returns home, everyone’s surprised. Their dad focuses on the farm and finds it hard to express love, but he does care for them.

    The youngest daughter, Yee, spots a mysterious woman near a big tree on their farm. Surprisingly, her sisters also see the woman. Later, they go to a fair where Yam feels sick.

    Despite that, she insists on riding the Ferris wheel one last time. On the wheel, Yee sees a scary old woman pointing at her. Yam sees it too, and they tell their sister. When they get off, Yam feels even worse, and her dad scolds her.

    Yak, the rebellious brother, returns with Yam from the hospital. He often clashes with his dad and brother because he left home. Despite their differences, the siblings are close. Strange things start happening around the farm, and Yam seems to be targeted.

    One night, when the parents are away, the boys get drunk while the girls sleep. Yam wakes up and leaves the house. Yard hears whispering that stops her from following Yam. Yak notices his sister leaving and tries to stop her but can’t get close. When they feel pain, they resist the whispers.

    Yak wakes his brothers, and they chase after whatever’s bothering Yam. They bring her back home safely, but she feels unwell. They realize Yam is possessed and decide not to tell their parents yet.

    However, when it’s just the girls and their mom at home, a possessed old woman named Chauy enters and harms Yam. With the help of a man named Sarge, they learn that Yam is possessed, and Yak starts to believe it when he sees his sister’s condition.

    Can Yak Rescue Yam?

    In this spooky movie, things get intense fast. Yak and Sarge visit Chauy’s house, where they find out she’s done a creepy ritual to make Yam the new host for an evil spirit (let’s not get into the gory details).

    Then, out of the blue, Chauy ends her own life in front of them. Yam’s condition worsens, but Dad doesn’t believe Yak when he says she’s possessed. However, the spirit acts up, proving its existence.

    The family tries to fight it alone but eventually calls a priest named Mr. Puth for help. They discover some seriously creepy stuff in their dad’s bamboo trees, like organs and a still-beating heart. They burn it all, and Puth advises Yak to take Yam to the hospital.

    Puth gives Yak a special gun to deal with any evil spirits they encounter. It’s like something out of a fantasy movie where fog turns into your biggest fear. Despite being scared, Yak drives until he sees his family ahead, even though nobody’s in the car with him.

    Following Puth’s instructions, Yak uses the special gun on his family, making the spirits vanish and keeping them safe or so they think. Yam wakes up suddenly, whispering again, and takes control of the car, causing a crash that kills Puth.

    When Yak wakes up, he’s alone in the car, facing Yam with a gun. She kills Sarge and aims at Yard, but Yak intervenes. He hurts Yam, forcing the spirit out of her body, and then shoots it. Finally, the family reaches the hospital.

    In the end, Yak realizes something was wrong at home, so he returned. Yard stays with Yam, who seems better, but then Yam does something strange and pulls out her own tooth (seriously unsettling). When the rest of the family arrives, it’s too late—Yam’s body is swollen, and blood is everywhere.

    Sadly, Yak couldn’t save her, and Yard sees the spirit outside the hospital window. They hold a funeral for Yam, and Yak sets out to destroy the tree where they first encountered the spirit. The movie closes with a determined Yak, hinting that the battle isn’t over yet.

    We learn from Puth that the spirit is manipulative, and I noticed a potential mistake: the gun Yam holds isn’t the same as the one Yak used. Maybe the ghost tricked Yak into thinking he got rid of it, only to return when they’re happy.

    Yak’s quick temper might’ve clouded his judgment, and it’s possible another sister was the real host. Yee, the youngest daughter, is pointed at by the old lady, spotted the ghost first, and seems relatively unharmed. Maybe she’s the “strong” host. We’ll have to wait for Death Whisperer Part 2 to find out the truth.
