This Thai horror movie will make you think twice about keeping Tokay Geckos as pets. In the beginning, some cave explorers are bitten by demonic geckos and they become ghost zombies, with a different body than their dead corpses. One gecko bite seems to be all that is needed, but the geckos like to tear out eyeballs and jump into open mouths, too. We also see a woman come to the area to give lectures who becomes possessed by the evil geckos in a different way. She turns into a lizard woman who climbs street lamps to eat bugs with a long tongue and later she rips the hearts out of men and eats them, including her boyfriend. She also seems to control armies of the killer geckos.

So, a young woman turns into a hideous monster and rips the heart out of her boyfriend. What spurned boyfriend hasn't considered writing something like this about his girlfriend? This movie will also remind you of the misogyny at the root of many horror movies.

Most of the geckos we see are computer-generated, but there are a couple of live Tokay Geckoes in the mix, some dead ones glued to a wall, some house geckos in one collection, and lots of fake lizards. The soundtrack is full of the usual horror movie sounds of squishing, crunching, and rubber stretching, but it gets extra credit for mixing in real Tokay calls.
