Release and reception
At the time of its release in Thailand, Bangkok Haunted was the second-biggest grossing Thai horror film since Nang Nak in 1999.
The film was screened at the London Thai Film Festival on October 13, 2002.
Reviewing the film at the festival, Variety critic Derek Elley noted the film's atmospheric stylistic touches and technique, saying the first segment, Legend of the Drum was the strongest in terms of storytelling. Black Magic Woman is "largely an excuse for soft-porn sequences between some yucky shocks", Elley wrote. He said Revenge has weak plot development and had an over-reliance on "flashy effects".
Some called unrelated one story The Unborn (2003) and four stories Haunted Universities (2009) as Bangkok Haunted 2 and 3.
