based on South East Asian mythology about Malakas [the first man] and
Maganda [his Eve], the story deals with a giant crocodile terrorizing
the Thai rivers and countryside. This reptile is actually Shalawan, a
humanoid devil-god capable of transforming from man into crocodile. When
he's not swimming around devouring naked kids and destroying stick villages,
Shalawan lives with his 'love slaves' (also lycanthropes) in an underwater
cave. But Shalawan is causing so much trouble that the mayor decides to
offer a bounty to anybody who can kill the evil reptile. The reward is
twofold: riches beyond anyone's wildest dreams plus marriage to the mayor's
two beautiful daughters. However, Shalawan soon hears of this travesty.
He kidnaps one of the daughters, rapes her and levels a curse against
point, the hero Krai-thong enters the scene and sets off to kill Shalawan
and - when given the chance - to rape the 'love slaves' as well. He parts
the sea [just like Moses, see pic above, center] and enters the secret
cavern where he defeats Shalawan [the crocodile god isn't killed because
he promises to behave himself now]. Krai-thong also saves the mayor's
kidnapped daughter, Thong. The hero marries both Thong and her sister
Kaew, but the local witch doctor goes ahead and kills Shalawan despite
the promise. Now - even though it seems like the movie is about to end
- it doesn't. [spoiler alert ahead] Krai-thong
starts thinking about Shalawan's 'love slaves' (especially the one called
Vimila) back at the underwater cave and decides to go back.He returns,
seduces Vimila and takes her back to the village to become his third wife.
But the two sisters don't want to share. They order local villagers to
rape the woman, hoping to scare her back to the underground lair. In the
middle of the sexual assault, Vimila transforms into a crocodile and turns
the tables on the rapists.
genre fans have already seen large chunks of this movie. Charlatan HK
filmmaker Godfrey Ho recycled much of it for his cult-fave CROCODILE
FURY. Thai director Sompote Sands helmed this movie shortly after
his successful CROCODILE
FANGS, thus beginning his career-long fascination with crocodiles.
However, it should be mentioned that - previously - he was involved with
a couple weird productions, projects which were strange even by genre
standards. Director Sands stole the Ultraman characters
(from Japan's Tsburaya Studios) for his HANUMAN
VS 7 ULTRAMANS resulting in a lawsuit that continues today. Then,
year later, he took Kamen Rider characters from Toei
Studios and made the totally outrageous HANUMAN
VS 5 KAMEN RIDERS. While seemingly aimed at a youth market, the
film includes nudity, gore, bondage, plus a villain that craves human
blood to survive (not to mention a glaring copyright violation).
