Due to torrential rains, phone service is knocked out, the area is
pretty much cut off from the rest of Thailand ... and a few giant eggs
wash up at the river's shores. Most of those who find these eggs are
brutally killed by a creature or creatures unknown, only young May (Wanmai
Chatborirak) manages to make off with one of the eggs. What's especially
puzzling for James (Theerapat Sajakul), the investigating inspector, is
that eye witnesses report of a giant dragon-like monster to have committed
the killings - total hogwash of course, but then again, why would all the
eye witness reports correspong quite so well. And then a monster, just
like in all the reports, attacks for real and in broad daylight, and now
it's up to James to organize a retreat and evacuation, while at the same
time dealing with the moods of his teenaged daughter (Supansa Wedkama) ...
Another narrative thread revolves around May's siblings (Sushar
Manaying, Thanachat Tunyachat) trying to track her down while experiencing
a strange telepathic link to the monster ...
Now basically, we've been swamped with giant monster movies
over the last few years, and while the special effects in this one look
pretty convincing (and not only for a moderately budgeted movie), it
somewhat lacks in scope and spectacle to take on its big budget brethren. Fortunately,
the filmmakers seem to have been very much aware of that and instead of
presenting us with a half-assed disaster movie they went for a much more
intimate approach, focusing on a handful of main characters and their
trials and tribulations that somehow become entangled with the monster
attack, and somehow the characters' family bonds are mirrored in the
monster's motivations - making this one a pretty unusual, weirdly
relatable, and very watchable giant monster movie.
