Rahtree Reborn is a 2009 Thai horror-comedy film directed by Yuthlert Sippapak. The movie stars Laila Boonyasak, Mario Maurer, and Santisuk Promsiri in lead roles. It is the fourth installment in the Rahtree franchise. The movie revolves around a beautiful and mysterious girl named Buppah Rahtree (Laila Boonyasak). Buppah is a young woman who was murdered by her jealous boyfriend when she caught him cheating on her. Her spirit is trapped in an old apartment building, where she now haunts the residents. The ghost of Buppah is known for her violent and vengeful nature, and she is not shy about unleashing her fury on anyone who crosses her path.

The story begins with college student Ton (Mario Maurer) and his girlfriend, Pim (Nudtawat Saksiri), looking for an affordable apartment to rent. They come across the abandoned apartment building where Buppah's spirit is trapped, and despite being warned by the locals about the ghost, they decide to move in.

Soon after, strange things begin to happen, and Ton begins to see the ghostly figure of Buppah. He starts experiencing nightmares and strange occurrences, leading him to believe that the apartment is haunted. Ton and Pim enlist the help of elderly exorcist Uncle Somchai (Santisuk Promsiri) to rid the apartment of the vengeful spirit.

Uncle Somchai sets out to purify the apartment of the ghost by conducting a series of rituals, but his efforts prove futile. Meanwhile, Ton and Pim continue to experience supernatural occurrences, and it's apparent that the ghost is growing more powerful with each passing day.

The movie takes a comedic turn when Uncle Somchai enlists the help of two bumbling assistants to exorcise the ghost. Their antics provide a much-needed break from the horror that ensues in the film's early half.

As the story progresses, Ton discovers that he has a special connection with Buppah's spirit, which sets him on a journey to uncover the truth about her death. The movie culminates in a cryptic twist that provides closure to Buppah's story.

Rahtree Reborn blends horror and comedy to create an engaging and entertaining movie experience. The film's horror elements are genuinely unsettling, and the ghost of Buppah is a terrifying presence on-screen. The comedic elements provide respite from the scares, while also adding depth to the characters.

The movie is also notable for its performances. Laila Boonyasak delivers a standout portrayal of the vengeful spirit, capturing the character's rage and sadness perfectly. Mario Maurer is also impressive as the protagonist, giving a nuanced performance that captures Ton's character arc.

Rahtree Reborn is a satisfying entry in the Rahtree franchise, and it's a great horror-comedy movie in its own right. It offers scares, laughs, and heart in equal measure, making it a must-watch for fans of horror and comedy alike.
