24 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like the film a lot. Don't know what to expect at first. It switches from comedy to action to horror to drama... That's the fun of watching this kind of film. But at the end, I totally love the roller-coaster.

It's very different in its approaches to many basic themes like love, food and soul-mates... and even Buddhism. The mythology element is pretty cool and though I'm not from Thailand, I find it very special. My friend from Taiwan told me about the Lovers Rock story which is quite similar to this. The "Full Moon" Party scenes are dazzling...

One should let go of the conventional expectation with "1st Bite"... Then you'll really see what the film can take you... Bravo!!!!
